Just imagine.

Imagine living on the same street as all of your friends, for your entire life.
Imagine all the moments you wouldn’t miss.
Noise complaints, every night. Guaranteed.

Imagine it was the norm to see people on TV without a mask of makeup on their face.
Imagine the impact that would have on other people and how they view themselves.
It’s called show business for a reason. Emphasis on “show.”

Imagine winning the lottery.
Imagine the look on your face when you realize you won the lottery.

Imagine a world without money.
Imagine not having to worry about how you will afford everything.
Bank robberies would become obsolete. Just saying.

Imagine we had the ability to pause time and stay in one moment for as long as we wanted.
Imagine how happy that would make you.
Pick a moment, right now. Go.

Imagine a world where people treated others as if every day was their birthday.
Imagine how many compliments, and how much cake, would go around each day.
Compliments, not condiments.

Imagine being able to travel the world.
Imagine not worrying about how much it will cost, or when you will return.
“All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…”

Imagine going on the Internet and not seeing strangers bully each other with words.
Imagine Facebook without posts with 450 comments about a debate, on which no one intends to change their position.
Using bigger words than the other person doesn’t mean you won the debate.

Imagine eating food, without worrying about how many calories you consumed.
Imagine eating a box of six donuts, without feeling guilty.

Imagine watching a DVD without previews for you to fast-forward through.
Imagine watching an entire TV series in one day without feeling the urge to tell someone you’re “binge watching.”

Imagine handing someone your camera and having them take a picture of you.
Imagine getting the photos developed, only to realize the person didn’t know how to take a picture.
What? We lived through that already?

Imagine a driveway that could tilt to one side and dump all of the snow off of it.
Imagine how helpful that would be to all of us.
Someone get on this, NOW.

Imagine your favourite sports teams were good.
Imagine going to sleep happy every night because they won “the game.”
This would be nice.

Imagine knowing what the future holds.
Imagine having your life laid out in front of you on a piece of paper with important dates.
The spontaneity and unpredictability of life would be ruined, though.

Imagine never getting tired.
Imagine we didn’t need sleep in order to stay awake.
Robots. Solar powered robots. That’s what we are.

Imagine going to school to learn about things your are passionate about.
Imagine not having to sit through electives in which you have no interest.

Imagine flip phones coming back in style.
Imagine the massive bragging rights the people still with flip phones will have.
I would envy them.

Imagine a mall where a crowd of people knew how to walk properly.
Imagine not having to dodge a stroller coming at your feet every 20 seconds.
Then again, how else would we test our reflexes?

Imagine we could all pick an age and stay there our entire life.
Imagine being alive for 80 years, with a 25-year-old body.
I’ve been watching too many TV shows.

Imagine if illnesses didn’t exist.
Imagine how many people wouldn’t have to suffer.

Imagine a world where everyone’s main goal in life is to be happy.
Imagine helping each other reach that happiness.

Imagine if everyone had the same imagination as you.
Imagine what could be possible.

Just imagine.

  1. life would be pretty boring though. we have the life we have for all these reasons you mentioned, and I wouldn’t change things. of course it would be much easier, but if we all won the lottery what good would it be? people wouldn’t appreciate life, if they’d never get ill. people wouldn’t appreciate the youth, if they didn’t know they get old. I think it’s okay the way it is 🙂

      That’s a really good point! And truthfully, as I was writing this I was doubting what I was saying because you’re right, we’d have a life we didn’t appreciate…but I kept going just to see how it would turn out. Thanks for the feedback! I may decide to take this down.

      • Don’t take it down! I think it’s a good thought. We all wish for something to go away at times, we wish for “what if”, but I think it is also important to know that it is better that we don’t get everything at any time. because this way we learn to appreciate what we actually get 🙂
