If I Didn’t Have

If I Didn't Have

Every day I should be asking myself what life would be like if I didn’t have something that I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my freedom and independence? What if my health were to fail to the point where I can’t leave my home and need assistance with daily life? How would I cope with that? It’s one thing to not want to leave home, but it’s entirely different when you physically can’t My freedom is something I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my family? They are my rock, who I turn to when I need someone to make things seem better, and who I can laugh with in complete comfort to be who I am. I take them for granted sometimes, although as we all get older it’s in my mind more than ever, having a life without them. What would my life be like if I didn’t have the home I have. I’m fourth generation on the family farm, and although there’s been many hard times here over the years, it’s still where I find comfort. I can’t live in a city, I know that, so I’m so fortunate to be able to live here, with few worries. What if I didn’t have the past that I do? I know there’s no point in saying ‘what if’ in life, but there are times I wonder what would’ve happened if I’d made different decisions, would I be better or worse off? I don’t think about it much, except to say that I take for granted the life I’ve lived, to end up where I am today. Every part of my life has all brought me to this one moment in time, right now, and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m standing on Route 66 at Mother Road , home of the Mirage Motel 66, and I’m in deep thought. If you see me not paying attention like this at any time, please have mercy and not run over me! I’m wearing the fun and perky ‘Ace Sport Set’ in pink, from Dead Dollz. It’s excluvely for the Maitreya ‘Lara’ mesh body and fits perfectly!

I’ve added the ‘Urban Fitness Player’ and the ‘Usagi Trainers’ both from [Vale Koer].

The ‘SLife Fitness Band’ is from Anachron. I think it wants to call me lazy for not walking enough! 🙂

The tattoo is the ‘Queen Tattoo’ in black and at 50% opacity from Carol G Tattoo Wear.

This is the NO.SHELTER hair from NO.MATCH.

As always, my skin is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Travelogue’ set from oOo Studio Poses.

  1. Ah, my friend, I would like to go back over my life with the knowledge I’ve gained so far and then yes, I wouldn’t do certain things again. I really didn’t want to end up the way I have and it’s quite hard sometimes not to regret decision made in the heat of the moment. But I don’t think you ever get the chance to do that in a single lifetime.

    What does happen is that you come through on the next lifetime with what is know as “Viritti” in Sanskrit which roughly translates as ‘that which you are inclined to’. It’s built up with the insight of previous lives and is done to make a balance. Say in one life you had a lot of children that caused you no end of trouble. Then in the next life you might have no children at all and make that decision without any remorse. So,, from one extreme to another like a pendulum. Then it’s said that in the third life you make a balance by only having as many children as you can manage. I think that happens with a lot of things in the course of a life and that’s why it’s of no practical or logical use to judge anybody except for yourself – and even that should be done lightly. ❤


    1. You’re a wise man, Moz. I’ve gone through periods in my life that I’ve regretted past decisions and allowed it to affect me, but I try to limit it now. I’m at an age where I know for a fact that certain things will never happen and it’s ok. Because if it was meant to happen, it would have. It’s like the saying, ‘It’ll all be OK in the end, if it’s not OK it’s not the end’. I think John Lennon said that. {hugs} ♥
