Strangely, I’m not sure if I would be happier because I’m very happy by myself. I guess it would be nice to share things with someone (i.e., meals, movies, my bed). I’ve been there before and had a lot more grief than I wanted. That might have been because I was with the wrong person; imagine that.

The question is if the risks can compensate the possible outcome… LikeLike Reply I would live on a cliff surrounded by dogs 🐕 LikeLiked by 4 people Reply Me too! In Sardinia! Writing novels or something else artistico like photographing desolate ruins! Drinking strong, locally grown red wine in taverns without tourists! Swimming on wild beaches with beautiful women! In short… just what probably 99 per cent of the population would dream about! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Nice view! How many dogs? 😀 LikeLike Reply I would be surrounded by family and friends that I love, in my dream home and be able to retire from work to help others. I would be near mountains and the beach. Hopefully I would be healthy and happy as a pig in mud! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply So beautiful! What can get you there? LikeLike Reply Spending every day taking in life without anxiety, instead of just trying to survive. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Would you say that anxiety is your biggest blocker? LikeLike Reply I would be happy….genuinely happy LikeLiked by 3 people Reply What would be the first step to getting there? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Getting inner strength to remove toxic people from my life LikeLike Some people that aren’t with us would be. Some that are sick wouldn’t be. Some that are troubled would be happy. Otherwise I’m very happy. Oh yeah, I’d like to see everyone get along better. Oh yeah, I’d like to have a small home by the beach also.

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What would you like to do to get so much money? LikeLike Reply My life would be back to my normal as of 15 +/- years ago. I am plagued w/ an unbelievable amount of known & unknown medical problems. All of this makes it nearly impossible to keep up chores. More importantly it keeps me from being able to focus on the people I love and the good things in life. Why? My brain is both conscientiously and unconscienstcouchly focused on my unrelenting pain. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is very very tough… I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this… LikeLike Reply peaceful, unruffled, unhurried LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Oohh… I like this question. I have a sneaky feeling much of my list could actually be achieved if I really believe it! I’d like perfect health. That means bye bye MS. Okay that one isn’t achievable just yet but I’m still living in hope one day… Then I’d like to live in a decluttered home. I don’t like where I live as it’s my husband’s family home (he bought it off them) and I joined him years later. He gets to say what colours and decor goes – sigh. But I’d love to get it shop-shape at the very least. This is probably achievable to a certain extent, bearing in mind I can only chuck my own stuff out and not everyone else’s! I’d love to be more free as a person. Free from the negativity of other people; I’d like to learn how to rise above criticism and general horribleness without going under. And I’d like to be able to stop and think before reacting (and then NOT react!). That’s probably learn-able too. So two out of three isn’t bad is it?! 😆 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Two out of three is great! I hope you’re already working on them! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yep! Slowly but surely 😋 LikeLike I’d live in a humble off grid mountain farm near a lake and stream, with solar electricity, hot water, wood stove, satellite internet and home grown foods, miles and miles away from the nearest town with my truck barely used with just my husband and I and our dog under sky’s unpolluted view filled with stars we’d be cozy content while life came and went away from all the busyness of city and political strifes we’d simply enjoy the simple life LikeLiked by 3 people Reply That’s a very nice view! How different is your life now than this beautiful image you described? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The difference is we’re on the grid. Live in a huge mid century modern contemporary home and during winter rely on groceries. Though we do have been converting our sunroom into a greenhouse and backyard we’ve built four huge raises beds for farming to be utilized in spring through fall of this year. This coming year we’re going to try dehydrating and preserving our home grown foods so they last the winter we shall see! It’s still our goal to be off grid and we’re working on it. It’s just an expensive endeavor 😉 meanwhile we keep dreaming and planning LikeLike It took over 60 years but I have achieved my own personal nirvana. The goal now is to prevent others from screwing it up. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Wow! Congratulations for achieving it! How often does it happen for others to challenge it?

LikeLike Reply And I would find and court my soulmate. That would be cool too. LikeLike Reply At first I thought it would be an easy question to answer, but when I changed one thing on the board something else happened that I didn’t like. If I take out unhappiness will I know happiness? So, I choose to say It would look kind of the same but more pleasant, a little less jarring, and richer in love. LikeLike Reply It would look like hell. Everyone would be intelligent just like me. (tongue in cheek) LikeLike Reply I wouldn’t exist. My fear of just not existing will always be my darkest moments! LikeLike Reply I would be a best selling author, very famous and loved and adored LikeLike Reply Giving into some of my deepest desires… I guess it depends upon which deep desire I chose to pursue: carnal, emotional, or philanthropic ones. Giving in to some of mine would mean abandoning my Catholic values and I could end up a prolific sinner. On the other hand, I have other more noble desires I’d like to pursue, some may even say I would become extremely virtuous. Who knows how my life may look, hey.
