Linking up with Becky again today.
Week 6: If I could be anything…

If I could be anything in the world…
I would be me.


How boring does that sound? But also how incredible does that sound? 
I could say I would want to be any of the following…
  • A nurse to experience the thrill, chaos of a bleeding emergency room and joy of saving lives.
  • Princess Kate to be a Royal Princess involved with the Queen and Royal family. A real life princess.
  • A formula 1 drive to experience the adrenaline and speed of racing an F1 car and standing on the top podium.
  • An award winning actress to be a celebrity, enjoy the high life and get paid to act on set for a living.
  • A super hot fitness instructor to have the sexiest body with ripped muscles and no flab. The ideal job of just working out.
  • A high profile model to wear designer clothes and travel the world in fashion shows and photo shoots. 
But then I may also have to deal with…
  • Long shifts, losing my patients or making a mistake that could cost a life.
  • Having to follow the royal etiquette and being watched and criticised every second of the day. Always compared to Lady Di.
  • The ups and downs of a travelling life, the high risk of a tragic accident and not making the podium.
  • My life in the spotlight and the judgement of my movie roles, endless gossip and drama, affairs and addictions.
  • The early mornings, late evenings, demands on my social life and always watching what I eat.
  • The dark world of booze, cigarettes, drugs and eating disorders, The rejection of not being the right look or too fat.

Maybe I would like to be one of the above for a day or two, but then I would want my own sweet life back. I like living in my little town with my precious family – evenings spent with my gorgeous husband who loves and adores me, and our baby girl who lights up our lives. I love the home we are building and the special friends we socialise with and spend our time with. I love my life just the way it is…

What would you be?


  1. I love the list and also the realities of the lists.
    I would be a travel writer – someone who could see places and put it all into words that inspires others to visit too
