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.
somewhere where I can live well yet be free of all of life’s bullshit.

I second @theskafish. I want to be on a beach somewhere where no one is and just listen to the waves crashing. Good thing I’ll be in hawaii here in a few months :)
A more metaphorical place I would like to be is debt free! I just started tracking my finances and looking on reddit for good ways to build credit while paying off credit. So, I’m starting to feel the stress being shredded off of me.
I’ve got the here-and-now, I just need to start planning my future here-and-now’s :)
@kinsm4n, yea. I’d love to be financially free. All I’m qualified for, it seems, is low-paying jobs. And yes, I have a degree. It pisses me off to no end….I hate feeling like I’m getting used/taken advantage of/made a victim of, hate feeling like I’m getting fucked. I don’t want to go through my whole life this way.
I actually had an idea the other day, which astonished me in how simple it was. Still, it won’t be easy starting out. And that brings up another thing that worries me…wasting time barking up a dead-end tree.
I would want to be exploring Greece, Italy, Rome.

@TheSkaFish I think you need to remember that This is Water:
Having a degree is more important than just getting a job. So, don’t get angry, just know that you have the knowledge to maybe take a more challenging job…even if you fudge your Resume a little bit :) So long as you know you can handle the tasks, a little bit of lying to get the job isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
If you’re an honest person, then take that risk! Just because you are barking up a dead-end tree. The experience is invaluable not only to you, but could possibly be valuable to someone else that you come across. This is such a great way to network, is by finding common interests/activities that will land you a job that will be more respectable. Although, I am a hypocrite, I am dilly-dallying around instead of programming my buttocks off to try and see if it’s a dead-end or not. So, instead I am trying to do my best to get the stresses out of the way so I can focus more time on why I don’t want to do things and hopefully come to an answer faster :)
Hopefully this inspires you enough to act on whatever it is you’re considering but not doing :) I don’t even know you and I believe in you because I might benefit from your specific “Dead-end” tree
I’d like to be back in New York, but I know in a month when I return from Sicily I will only wish to return here (:
@littlepiranha, https://sphotos-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/969269_617923618238966_1305198593_n.jpg this looks liek a nice place, listening at Andrea Bocelli Con te partiro and with good company or family. ;)

@silviadanaj, Too rich for my poor blood lol.
@tangledupinplaid21, “deep within my own consciousness where it is blessedly silent” – wow, I envy you.. I wish I can say the same. :)
@littlepiranha, Maui, Hawaii
@Vovinawol, yeah I know what you mean. I’ve always believed in seeing things from a different perspective, and I try as much as I could to do that – although sometimes not easy.
Sometimes when I drive around the city, I try to see it as if I’m a tourist and it’s amazing, how, for a little while, it really gives you a different perspective.
@littlepiranha, Honestly I’m very happy with everything right now but would enjoy living in an Earthship very much. It’s complete freedom!
@kinsm4n, agree! Being financially-free (debt-free) is one of the best places anyone could be right now. I’m also working on it, myself (that’s my here and now hehe).
Other than that, I’d love to go back to Europe (Belgium, to be specific) and maybe stay there for good ;)
@stevenv, Earthship!! *thumbs up*
@littlepiranha, I like the saying because most think we can only get enlightenment by going to some wonderful or sacred place in the world. But most of the time we travel there and see it all with our same old un-enlightened eyes and we may as well stay home and meditate. : )
@Vovinawol, agree. It’s like planning a trip without too many expectations because you’ve already seen the photos and read the reviews, and then when you get there, it’s just a matter of taking your own photos and writing your own reviews. I guess people forget what it really means to travel.. well, most people. Where’s the most memorable place you’ve been?
To be most honest, the inner worlds and places. I’ve seen many great places here on earth, but none of them really gave me true knowlege so the memories don’t stick in my mind as much.
@littlepiranha, I would really like to tour Istanbul, Turkey one day, that is probably the one place I’d most like to go, but Rome, Venice, Florence would be nice too.
where ever you are……..
Physically be on the moon, much better view.
lying in a hammock in Fiji.
or the moon
