No longer a mere mortal

You’ve imbibed a special potion that makes you immortal. Now that you’ve got forever, what changes will you make in your life? How will you live life differently, knowing you’ll always be around to be accountable for your actions?

I suppose some will love the idea of living forever; going from one era to the next, see the change in society and how we adjust to new inventions and such. That’s not for me though.

I really wouldn’t want to be immortal, not on earth in any event. Just the idea that I could never truly love someone and grow old with them is enough to make me cringe. It must be horrible to fall in love, share a life and build memories, just to see the person you adore grow old and die right in front of your eyes, all while you remain forever 35.

If I had no choice and I have to be immortal on earth, I suppose I would do all I can to fight for equality and freedom. I would dedicate my days to solely fighting for the greater good, telling people of a much better life that awaits us after this one.

Immortality in the here-after: now that is something that I really look forward to. I guess knowing that there is an eternity of love and joy that awaits us is what makes death less scary for me.

What do you think?

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!

Say something, you know you want to!
