:iconmorpheuspls: What if you woke up one day and you were a baby again, and your whole life you have lived so far up til now was just a dream? A dream that you remember clearly to the greatest detail? What if you had to "grow up" again? What would you do?

Would you try to relive life as closely to the one you lived before in your "dream"? Would you try to erase your past memories and live the remainder of your life forgetting everything that happened in the "past"?

Or would you use the knowledge you gained from this "dream", and change the course of your life altogether to do things differently, like a second chance? Or maybe you'd choose to do nothing?

What would you do? Think about it.

I would want to change some things, like choose a different education and avoid certain people, BUT i wouldn't dare cause i might become this totally different person and never get together with my sweetheart. I really like my life the way it is, eventho i had to go through the shitty years to get here. Oh there is one thing i would certainly change. I would never start smoking. Cause quitting is a bitch :-)

I'd be a baby who knows calculus.
I'd be unstoppable.


The main thing I'd do would be to start drawing seriously at a really young age. I'd probably watch a lot of tv too because the shows that were on while I was growing up were the best.
I wouldn't go out of my way to make sure everything else is the same, and I wouldn't try to make everything different either. I'd just live in the moment, like I did the first time.

I could also do something like write the Hunger Games before Suzanne Collins does and become a famous author or somehow prevent 9/11 as a six-year-old. That would be cool too.

I'd do everything pretty much the same, except I wouldn't date anyone in high school. That was 4 years of my life wasted on a douchebag who left me and my family in debt for years :no: 

That and I'd get a head start on drawing seriously. :nod: It would be nice to see where I'd be if it didn't take so long for me to start!

Frankly, I would love it if this happened. My life until now hasn't been that colorful, I've learned so many things in these 16 years that I have been living. Although I don't regret my life, I would like to start again, and this time, making myself out as a prodigy artist. x)

I would keep to myself in school, work harder at my schoolwork, and preserve my youthful beauty. :nod: I would also try to make friends with my teachers rather than my fellow students. However, I wouldn't completely avoid my peers; I would just not become close friends with any of them. Also, I would start seeing a therapist regularly at around age twelve.

Maybe the possession things would never have started...

Well, as soon as you start changing things, the future will not be what happened in the dream as well as being influenced with the knowledge as well. So then again, you'll be kind of in the dark about what will happen in the future, especially if you totally change who are want to be.

As for me, I'll try to socialize better so I won't be as awkward as I am now... >A< And hope I  recreate some of my favorite OCs (funny how I'm kind of more worried about this...)

If I didn't make all the mistakes I made I wouldn't be the me I am and I am at the best place in my head spirit and body that I have ever been.I could tell stories that people wouldn't believe but I experienced them and they are part of me.I worked hard for that pain and grief and it is mine and the knowledge that has come from it is mine and I would never give that up for anything - not even to right wrongs or some very costly mistakes.

I'd realize just how retarded I was when I was little and I'd change that for the better. I'd be more confident in myself throughout my school years so that no one would pick on me, knowing that I use to be so naive. I'd talk back to anyone who disrespected me instead of just taking it and crying when I got home. I don't know if I'd actually change myself to become popular, but I'd definitely change myself to have more friends and do more stuff in my life. I'd change myself not to have been so quiet throughout school and have confidence to speak-out in class more often and do more activities. I'd change the mistakes I've made and make sure they never happened.

This happens often for me. I like to lucid dream, so sometimes I spend a few years or more in the dreamworld. At times, I forget who I am, where I am. So I wake up here & need to really think a moment where I am. Thankfully, sticky notes help. :)

If I were to relive this specific life from the start, it likely would end up different. But I may not have the opportunities I've had throughout, so that would make me sad. I'd never want to re-do my past, even with all the pains I experienced. I'm happy in the present moment.^^
