a game of what if?

Sizzle posted this today.  It got me thinking (I know, I know, what doesn’t right?)

Sizzle’s post made me think about her question – What if?

What if you could do anything you wanted?

Without regret?

Without limitations?

Without worry?

Without consequences?

What would you do if you had the freedom to do what you wanted?  Free from whatever restrictions you think or feel are holding you back?

My immediate answer to her was (in short) leave.  I would sell everything (I have nothing) and leave.  See the world.  Experience it all.  Feel the earth between my toes on the other side of the world.  See the people of the world.  Feel their emotions, experience their lives, listen to their dreams, listen to their struggles and feel their desires.  Taste it.  Everything.  All of it.  Everywhere.  gone.

Limitations:  Love my job, love my home.  Love my family, friends, kitten and life.

Other limitations:  Fear, (money? probably not an issue, it can be made along the way).  So fear I guess.

Fear of what: Regret?  Not really me.  I can be impulsive and try not to live with regrets.  What then?  What really stops any one of us from just doing what we want?  When you think of the people who are truly happy they are not the ones with ‘things’, they are the ones who ‘do’.  The people that are truly happy are the ones who decide what they want out of life and just DO it.  No ‘I WISH’.  They DO.

I need to think about this some more.  While I am off thinking  – tell me – What if?  Answer that question.  Don’t just lurk behind the scenes reading my blog, participate on this one.  I want to know what you would do.  Tell me your dreams, desires, needs and wants.  I want to know it all.  Do not hold back.  Do it anonymously if you have to (especially if the dream is a grand love affair that may or may not involve cheating! lol)… just do it.  You too mom, family and friends.  I want to know.

Enquiring minds (NerdGirl) wants to know.

Chico managed to find my dream house (and it isn’t even on the ocean!) at Bobby S.’s blog – Kitsune Noir.  It combines an isolated home and more books than I could read in a lifetime.

Stocking Stuffers!

I am a fairly low maintenance woman but here are some of my favourite must-have beauty products:

Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Shampoo (and Conditioner not shown).  This stuff smells heavenly:


My favourite styling product, AG Varnish.  It gives the illusion that my hair is healthy and shiny:


Mac Perfume, the only kind I wear, makes me smell like vanilla cookies:


For silky skin, Body Shop Body Butter, vanilla spice of course:


The same mascara since grade eight.  Why change something that costs 4.88 at the SuperStore and works like a charm?:


And , finally the best lip stuff ever.  Gives me the lips I should have been born with:
