If earning money was not important or necessarily in this world, what would you do with your life?
Be honest while asking yourself: What gives me joy, inspiration and I'm passionate about? What would I be or do with my life if there were no limitations to do with money, and or health? If I live in a world that purely supports my needs in every way, would I do or be where I am now?
Give me a chair by the ocean a guitar and the means to paint lovely paintings and I would be the happiest person on earth.
How often are you doing this? What we can imagine we can make real
I am 55 and I dream of it everyday. Unfortunately my wife is 30yrs younger than me and I have to consider what she wants also. It will happen one day but not just yet. The things I have chosen have infinite possibilities so as to stave of boredom.
If money was not relevant in life then we could do what was really important to us. Personally, my family is what I live for so spending time with them would be my choice. The most important thing we as parents can give our children is time, and of course they need to know they are loved and safe.
I would be a stay-at-home Mom, which is what I am doing right now. It doesn't pay in money, but it is worth every minute!
Writing, teaching about my experiences......It is my dream to have a centre for the development of human potential where people from all walks of life can come and be inspired to create, heal and learn...I would travel the world learning about indigenous cultures and bring this wisdom back to explore!!
Iris what we can imagine we can make real. so may all your dreams come true and more.
Thank you Nadine and yes may all your dreams come true too!!! To finacial freedom so that we share our gifts and talents without reservation! CHEERS
One thing I would do is travel to many different countries and try to understand things from points of view other than American. As an American citizen, it takes no effort to simply view all world events and people through an American lens and make decisions on that basis. As the saying goes, "Knowledge is power."
And being a lover of fine food, I wouldn't pass up the local cuisine I would find in my travels...
I am still working as an artist perhaps more fine arts than graphics and either working as a sports coach or in a similar type endeavor. Had my life not been geared around money I would have concentrated more on wildlife conservation, sports (baseball) and the pursuit of becoming a painter (fine artist).
I spent the first 27 years of my adult life wallowing in drug and alcohol addiction, so perhaps that would have still been part of my soul's learning experience, hard to say. But my dreams and aspirations did not include drugs and were more along the lines of sports, art and outdoor recreation.
No one I know ever dreams of becoming a drug addict, so it is hard to say how that became me and part of my life. Now that I'm sober I have returned to doing what I dreamed about in my youth, working as a graphic artist (earned a degree in design in 2011), working as an umpire to give back to the game I love and living in a rural environment where I can camp, kayak, fish and garden without having to travel to do so.
Good question, as I suspect the new paradigm humanity will create in the near future will not be encumbered with the almighty dollar as a motivating factor!
I probably would teach what I know, which is about my crafts, hobbies, and how to basically how survive without the use of money. It is important to do for yourself and for others. the reason why some people cannot make it is pride and having a high sense that they cannot make it without certain things and statuses in life. Sometimes you have to be knocked down a few pegs in order to appreciate the people and thing they have in life. just like me. I had to realized that too.
If that was the case, I guess I will still be doing what I have always done which is to earn money from my hobbies and interests.
And I have so many areas of interest like advising people, writing novels, dramas, comedy and stuffs like children stories, learning how to program the computer etc.
I know I would spend a larger part of my life on the internet surfing, connecting with people as well as learning quite a lot of things also.
Since I also love to daydream and imagine things, I guess I would also channel some part of my life into such activities which fuels a lot of creativity in me.
So as for me, it is not really all about earning money. It's more of catching fun and being happy!
That's exactly what I'll do with my life!

Just curious about how others see God, (or NOT see God).Personally, I believe there is some kind of supreme being, but that god does not particularly care how anyone or all of humanity sees this deity. And does not have any set rules about how to live life, or existence....

I have written under the guise of different pseudonyms on HubPages since 2010. I never earned more than $5. Can you earn money on this site from writing fiction or is this site more a 'self-help' 'how to' blog that needs 'polls, pictures and links etc?'
