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. :)
@psyguy24, wow! That’s pretty vivid! You know that question, “Where do you see yourself 5-10 years from now?” – I think you nailed it. I guess I had the same ‘vision’ when I was in college, myself (only, I am a wife and I have twins, LOL). But now, I’m almost 30, working for 7 years now in a job I’ve never imagined I’d be doing (but not complaining, though). I’ve always thought (and dreamed) that by 25, I’d be a mom (yes, a young mom). But now, I’m pushing for 30 and I’m still unmarried, but I’ve done a lot of things and was able to travel the world and all that.
Sometimes I ask myself: If I were in college again and I ‘knew’ I’d be who I am today, would I still go for my ‘original’ vision of being a young mom. Honestly, I don’t know the answer to that, although I still want to be a mom (I’ve always seen myself as a future homemaker, lol) but maybe in a few years, I’d be a different mom.
I don’t know if I’m making any sense here, but your thoughts just pulled a trigger inside me and made me think about who I were when I was your age. Hehe. Good one!
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.
I’d like to be anywhere but here. Far away so no one can find me. Just me myself and I. I want to be alone firguring everything out. I want to learn why certain things happen to us that bring us down to feel like nothing. I want to learn why the sun looks breath taking when I rises in the east or why it looks even better when it sets in the west. I’m tired of everyone tell me the answers to everything I just want to go and figure it all out on my own. Far away.
I’d love to be in South Park messin up stuff with Cartman or perhaps terrorizing the bottom of the ocean together with Sponge Bob and Patrick.
A roman orgie would also suffice:)
Travel back a couple of thousands of years to listen to a translated discussion between Aristoteles and Plato???
Raiding China as one of Genghis brothers?
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.
@oso96, Yes! There’s a travel guide who lives near me named Rick Steves, and I’ve been wanting to go to Slovenia ever since I saw one of his shows about it on public television. So, here’s your free trip to Slovenia:
Guess that will have to do for now… but one day we’ll really get there!
