If you knew you were going to live forever, what would change?
I would soak in everything I could possibly read. There always seems to be something else to do that is more important or more entertaining than reading a book. I would start reading more often.
I’ve been accused of being a perpetual student. I’d go back into school and get a few degrees, maybe history. I’d travel the world and not only see history being made, I might even make some of it personally.
I might even actually slow down a little and enjoy life more.
Topic: If you had a time machine….
The most obvious thing that one might say in this situation is to go back in time knowing the lottery numers and play them to win millions or become famous because you know about a particular point in time. But that’s boring and predictable.
Me? I can’t actually pick anything that I would change. Now, this might sound boring to some, but it’s true.
I might do my degree earlier, but I may not do as well because I don’t appreciate it like I did later in life. I might say that I didn’t want to date “X” person, but really, I’ve learned from those mistakes and loved each one in their own way. Everything has it’s time and all comes in due course. In my life, even though I might complain about it now and then, I wouldn’t change a thing as it relates to my own life. I might explore something new and not squander things so much, but all in all, it’s been a good life so far. Onward!
