Though I would not give up the job I do now.( I enjoy my job very much) I would open an animal shelter. I love animals and would love to be in the position to help them. They are so pure.

I'm not quite the Pollyanna that I sound, but I would definitely be a stay at home soccer mom with too many irons in the volunteer fires. (At least for a year or two, anyway). After I got a good dose of that, I would go into politics.

If money was no concern?

Hmm...would be able to spend time with signif, family and friends.

Would help out my family and friends that are in need.

Be able to DO stuff with signif instead of having to work. Maybe work on HAVING a family with signif if he wanted one.

TRAVEL!!!!

Go back to work on my novels

Work on some charities or work doing volunteer stuff like Victim's Services, Church or Enviromental issues

Get back into theatre

Take classes always want to take but weren't part of degrees

Have time to work out and tone up

Learn to fly

Oh and did I mention travel ;)

If money were no object I would still do the same exact thing i am already doing. I don't think no matter how much money i had i would give up what i do. I'm a pediatric icu nurse and i love my job and my kids to no end. Reading all of your posts it makes me sad to think how many people live their lives working at jobs which do not provide personal gratification or a feeling of fulfillment . My job completes me and although ill never be a millionaire doing it i can't imagine giving up the feeling that what i do each day actually makes a difference in someone's life, not even for the best sushi in Japan or an ocean side beach house..

Madison

I'd continue to do exactly what I am now doing, helping clients and putting together multi-million dollar business deals. For me it's not heartless, it's fun. In a dream world they'd all be in the billions vs. millions, less aggravation and faster to complete.

... I think that because I've always done what I have ever dreamed about doing - the grass on the other side of the fence is no better than what I have of my own. I have the best of it all.

If this is a site for those that are somewhat accomplished, I'd guess that most members here would find themselves already living their dream lives.

In my book, the passion for a pursuit or undertaking comes first, the income and wealth is just a secondary byproduct.

Would be a full time mother. I have no children but my admiration from my mother makes me want to have this respected position.

I would play music and make people happy. Having people come up and say at the end of the night that you added to their evening is priceless.

Thanks Katie for the compliment . . . my 13 year old daughter took that picture of me at the dinner table, we had such a giggle over it!

Wow, writing . . . I think that's what I would do too! That, or something in the helping profession . . . social work, charity work, something fun and useful, and most importantly . . . meaningful!!!!!!!!!!!!



My first post makes me sound kinda self-indulgent! But my kids books are fantasy adventure novels that I've read in libraries, schools and bookstores to children and they love them! The characters are strong, kind, funny, learning about Earth and helping it survive.

The stories are about a group of kind-hearted, hilarious aliens and the boy who meets them first and the trouble and laughs they get into. But the underlying themes are about kids' self-esteem, bullying, UDOG's (Unexpected Deeds of Generosity), protecting the planet and respecting all living things. I'm hoping I can get a whole series written before I croak.

I also help people get their first book started, TGL! Just say the word! lol

If money were no object I'd be a vet and my services would of course be free. How I'd love to be able to help all those animals out there that are neglected due to the fact their owners love them but can't afford to take care of them. I know it's often said if you can't afford to pay for the pets care then you shouldn't have one but I often feel that people in those situations need the companionship. To be able to allow them to have that and provide such a service for free would really put a smile on my face. Ok, I really sound corney here!

I rarely do that. I may suggest that the reason they are broke or feel bad might be because they drink or use drugs too much and that they may have ruined their liver (enlarged). They don't want to hear that, but they will eventually hear it from me if they are asking for a loan or a job or whatever they want out of me.

Wow TGL,
What a photo! Great pic!

Okay, down to business.

If rent and supplies and PC maintenance costs and transportation and insurance were of no concern to me, I would:

- get back a bit into my fine art gig, working on my hand-made paper 2D pieces, (embos.ca)
- paint more wildlife and still life pieces,
- work on canvases as big as a fridge,
- do more studies of water, painting the reflections, movement and textures of water,

- then write the sequel to my kids' books ... "Out of This World,"

On top of all that, I would be such a happy, contented, fullfilled woman that my creative energy overload would carry through into my life with my guy, (probably an art and literature lover) and the passion I use to create my work would spill out onto him and he'd better like a lot of attention ... because he's gonna get it!

(just a bit of MM advertising added)

LOL

I agree except that I would add that I get a lot of internal satisfaction from helping people, even if they don't understand or appreciate that they are being helped.

well..I am one of the few lucky people who no longer work for a living but for my own pleasure..

mainly volunteer for charity as a lawyer, designer and craft maker from recycled material, counselor/mentor to young people , cancer patients and carers, marriage counselor, volunteer Chinese teacher to dyslexic and dyspraxic kids , spokesperson and fighter for lost causes...sponsor and venture capitalist in cultural and musical projects all over the world...and taking on projects that are fun and not necessarily profit orientated.

Would love to return to art and design at a later stage.
Meanwhile a globe trotter/adventurer both for work and pleasure...

But I believe that the greatest pleasure I get from all my activities is the ability to use my skills to help others and to be able to make a difference to someone's life and well-being and the friendship and goodwill I get in return is rich reward indeed. LIfe is a constant learning process and there is no greater joy than being able to learn at leisure.

If I had the freedom to choose without any restrictions - it would probably go in some order like this:
1. go with the Red Cross over sees to feed the hungry or build homes
2. get my eyes fixed to 20/20 vision (wear contacts or glasses) and be a fighter pilot - always wanted that but can't because of my vision
3. race car driver
4. legal aid lawyer
5. counsellor (mental health/children)

I don't think I will ever manage to achieve # 2 or 3 even if I didn't have to work. The rest I am working on - slowly and just maybe when I turn 70 one of you might need my legal advice or my couch - lol

If living doesn't cost anything? My occupation would be a vet or a doctor who help people or/and people with animals, who couldn't afford to take care of themselves or their pets.
