Sunday Ponderings: Who'd You Be?

Hello friends...I am back, and I hope, this time for a longer time. It had been a difficult week for me, but things are better now. I faced the loss of someone I looked up to last Sunday, and am going through the recovery process. It wasn't a family member or a friend, but a spiritual Guru I followed. As I am not interested in sharing any further details, moving on...if you notice, this Sunday post has been moved to Monday, thanks to my unpredictable Internet connection...but then, what can I say, except for that I'm glad it's back!

Now, the question for today is something I borrowed from Prince Charming...which is this: Assuming that there's something called a re-birth, who or what would you want to be born as the next time, with the condition that you cannot choose to be yourself?  

My answer...I'd say I would want to be someone brave and strong, caring and understanding, someone with an unlimited reserve of patience and good thoughts to share with everyone...I think, next time, I'd like to be born as my maternal Grand Dad. I don't know why I came up with this answer...his image was the first thing that came up to my mind when I thought of an answer for this question... though I have never met him. Never known him either...but still, I chose him to be the person I want to re-born as...strange!

Well...let me not digress...I am waiting for your answer to this question...

Hoping to hear from you folks soon...

Signing off

Me.

  2. Whomever it would be that could meet my husband in his next life so we could do it all over again. The dynamics wouldn't have to be the same [kids, where we lived, etc.] but just to be with him. Again.

    Sorry for your loss, but glad to see you here. Hope you are feeling better and have a good week.

  3. I was sorry to hear of your loss, but it's very good to see you back on here again! We've missed you. That's a very hard question, and really needs quite a lot of thought, unless you come up with someone instantly! I think I would have quite liked to have been Mother Teresa, who did so much good, and yet really wanted nothing for herself and lived a very simple life. I love all the quotes by her.

  4. Hope you're week gets better! I would say a better version of myself but that's not allowed so........I'm choosing my old music teacher who was quiet and unassuming but brightened up the day for anyone who met her and was a constant force for good.

  6. Welcome back hun :* I'm really sorry for your loss.
    I believe in reincarnation and been thinking about this often. I wish I could be re-born as a very powerful person because I would like to help other people and try to make this world be a better place. It sounds so very lame, I know, but this is what I wish for.

  7. I would definitely want to come back being able to help heal others. Whether that be a psychologist or a massage therapist or something that directly affects and touches peoples lives. Doesn't matter what body I take possession of when I come through again.

  8. I'd like to coome back as someone a little more self-confident and brave. A specific someone doesn't really come to mind.

  9. I would like to come back as someone who empowers or inspires others in a positive way. Either that, or I would like to be someone creative. I want to be creative SO bad, but don't have a creative bone in my body.

    Glad you're back!

  10. I AM PUTTING THIS MESSAGE ON EVERYONE'S COMMNT PAGE:

    I pride myself on trying to visit everyone I follow as often as possible. I enjoy all of you so much and have deliberately surrounded myself with the type of up-beat, happy bloggers as possible.

    However, recently I have taken in my 32 year old granddaughter and her two children. It has been such a monumental change for me I am finding it hard to keep up my blogging, and my visiting.

    I hate to admit it but there have been some difficulties with adjustments (on both sides) and I find that I just don't have the time to do the things I want to do. I also seem to be letting it get me down.

    Just give me some time and I will be back on my game soon....I'm sure......kt
