Where Would You Like To Be Right Now?
You can look at the question from different perspectives. Is there a place where you’d really want to be right now (a travel destination that’s been in your bucket list, maybe)? At work, where would you like to be (still climbing the corporate ladder, perhaps)? Would you like to be in the arms of a loved one who’s far away (or has passed away)? Or would you like to be in Hogwarts right now? :)
Imagine. And share. :)

@littlepiranha, I haven’t read Harry Potter in a while but I always really really really wanted to be in that world when I did. Other than that I want to be at the ocean, seeing Phish, or deep within my own consciousness where it is blessedly silent. Most of all though, I want to be Here and Now… REALLY here and now and not seeking anything but.
Right here and right now. After all, the present is where all happiness and truth lies, is it not? If you are not enjoying the blissful present moment, then you are seeing through shaded lenses, feeling it through thick gloves.
I want to live right here and now in full awareness and consciousness. Yes, it may be fun to day dream of being somewhere else, but it takes you away from the present. This way of thinking can be detrimental to one’s happiness. So I want to be in my dorm room ;P
On a beach, with trees behind me, a few of my friends riding the waves in front of me while i sit by a few dogs without anything going through my mind. The area around the beach is secluded from the normal people, and offers self development methods all around, a community of love, peace and harmony with nature, and taking in all that it offers.
@littlepiranha -Where I want to be isn’t so much a “where” as a “when”. I’m 24, I’m single, and I am a senior in college. All I have wanted for the past few years is to be on my own, in a job related to my schooling, and in a relationship. Pretty basic really.
Complete financial independence would be nice, but I know it’s not realistic. It may be sad, but right now, I feel like I am just shooting for average, shooting for the middle, because I know that’s all that my circumstances (such as the economy, or my personal finances) will allow me to aim for.
Since I was 13, I knew that I wanted to become a husband and a father, I have just always known that having a family is what I was meant to do. So for the last eleven years I have been looking forward to the day when I am finally a husband and father.
People always advise to live in the moment, and advise against living too much in the past or the future. But if I could be anywhere right now… I would be holding my future wife, maybe as we are putting the kids to sleep (yes plural on kids), and as we go to leave, I have my arm around her, and her me. He ask if we can leave the door open just a crack, because he is still a little afraid of the dark, of course we are both happy to oblige. We walk down the hall leave the light on, doors cracked on both sides. We go downstairs, she plops down on the couch, while I go grab us a pint of ice cream, while we watch the newest episode of whatever. She lays against me, and I reach over in front of her for each scoop of ice cream. Before the show, I kiss her, playfully starting on the back of her neck, and migrate to her lips, the show begins and we settle down, and I think to myself that I am so blessed that I cannot even begin to describe how lucky I feel.
That is where I would like to be right now, I cannot express the longing that I feel for a moment like that. A future like that . A life like that.
