Spend the Rest of your Life the Best of your Life here- Florida Keys http://www.SearchFloridaKeysHomes.com
What would you do if you only had one year to live? The novelist Anthony Burgess found out when he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at age 40.
Burgess was working as a teacher in Brunei and had already published several novels. But when he got the devastating news and was sent back to England, he had to decide how he would provide for his wife after his death. His answer: Become a full-time writer.
During the last year of his life, he wrote five and a half novels, so one story goes. Ultimately he received some good news: His cancer had gone into remission. Instead of dying, he embarked on a lifelong career as a novelist, winning multiple awards and earning great fame for his book A Clockwork Orange, which was turned into a movie by legendary director Stanley Kubrick. He did eventually die…in 1993 at the age of 76 of lung cancer.
What could you accomplish if you lived like you only had a year left? Imagine the energy and force of will you would put towards your dreams, your family, your passion!
And then, what if you discovered that you were going to go on living after all? Imagine what a leap you would have made towards your dreams and goals.
Even if just for a day, what if you lived like you only had a year left? What would you do today?
