Pass Me The Good Life Please

Updated on April 24, 2012

What If We All Could Pick And Choose

The lines would be long and sometimes all the good lives our taken

Then you get luck of the draw

Each time you pick and choose you have fifteen prefences you have to take

Then ofcourse their are five more optional ones

Remember the old saying be careful what you wish for

It is so true

The problem is you never get to pick the time

So it is always a surpise

Let me give you a quick example

Say you want to be rich, healthy and have a long life

That sounds easy enough

Then you start to live your life and you are a banker and have lots of money

You have great health

You will live to a ripe old age of 92

All looks good on the outside until we dig a little deeper

You have no luck with women and you have been married four times

Unfortunately you were rich when others were poor during the depression

There are so many twists and turns in your life you continue to learn

Your first wife was unable to have any children

So you adopt twins and later divorced and remarry and this time have two of your own

Divorced again and have three more wonderful children

All girls I might add and what a life you have

This is one of many lives that come to mind

So while you wait in line think of all the things you would like

To travel and see the world

Being a man or a woman

You can't pick nationality either

So let the fun begin

Your a woman during the Roman Empire

Your a man during the old west

After wondering what comes next

I am so glad we cant pick and choose

I love my life even more than before

If you could pick fiftteen things you want in life?

What would they be ?

Play this game with me

Lets see who you would turn out to be ?

Then let the world spin and it is up to you to see it through

To the very end...God Bless You

      You have a brilliant mind.

      This hub was fantastic. Most us have so much to be grateful for, and yes I am always afraid to ´wish´for anything in case I get it.!!!

      xstatic I hear so many people say I hate this life.I think to myself is their life that bad?Did they create the circumstances that they live or did they have no control?Do they really understand how good they have it?So why not let them choose what they think they want fame,family,health,money,love,honesty,friends and being really smart are just some of the things to start you thinking.I realized long ago every situation can be one hundred times worse.So each day I try to make the best of what I have and find the silver lining in my dark clouds.Thanx for coming on my journey and I also believe we have the life we secretly want.Have a great day.

      A great Hub and very thought provoking. Maybe we hav no choice, but it does seem to me that life cycles, one ends, we get in line and live the life we desrve, the life we earned. I dunno, sort of Buddhist thinking I guess, and your guess is just as good.

      Up, Interesting, Awesome!
