I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 31: If the average human lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I wouldn’t hesitate at anything, ever–why would you, when you’re going to die young anyway? There’s no need to worry about saving for retirement, or plotting out a twenty-year plan. I would travel around the world and say yes to every new opportunity that came my way without a thought for the future. I would probably be a little more foolhardy than I am now, which wouldn’t be a good thing, but I would definitely feel much less inhibited by worries about the future.
i’m nearly there! i would’ve had kids
It’s thought-provoking, isn’t it?
Wow, that’s a really interesting question! I’m not entirely sure how I would answer it, but I can say that I’d definitely be less worried about the future ;)
For sure–there’d be so much less future to worry about.
I would hv definitely hv learned to enjoy my life more than i hv in fact in my life :)
That’s a good thought :)

Hehe I think I’d feel the same way. I’d quit my job immediately… don’t need that much money if you’re just going to live until 40. Then I’ll spend every moment doing the things I love: hanging out with family/friends, eating fantastic food, and reading. :)
It definitely makes me reconsider my priorities–after all, you really don’t know how much time you have left.
Hmm. I don’t know. I want a lot of things but I don’t need much. I’m already living the moment. I don’t plan that far ahead.
I think planning ahead can be good and bad–bad, because you miss out on the present!
