Where would you be if you left all your troubles behind?

  2. Hopefully relaxing on a beach in Barbados with a nice cold drink, and most importantly, a stress-free mind.

    To answer your question directly, I will say I would be happily in the present. Leave the past where it is.

  5. In a very boring place, I guess! Troubles, sometimes, make me grow and valorize the life and the stuff that I have. It's the fuel to go ahead, learn and try to be a better person.

  6. Where one should be, I suppose, is helping others put their troubles behind them.

  8. In a large country house in France, waiting patiently for my butler to bring me my Port by the fire!

  9. Too often, people are very uncomfortable when they don't have their troubles to keep them company and give them something to talk about. Troubles are external. The prize is on the inside! Blessings, Sherry

  13. I had a chance to be with a woman who had a ton of family money. Besides that I really didn't love her, I always worried what I'd do with myself if I didn't have to think about money.

    Now, being married(to someone else), with three kids, I could use a little of that money! :)

  14. Living and making the most of the gift of the current day - that's why it's called 'the present' -
    and yet so many people spend all their energy on reliving yesterday, projecting about tomorrow and never open the gift that is today.

  15. If we recognize that challenges or lessons come disguised as troubles, we could learn a lot more in life.

  16. Sae, it seems sort of lame to say that money isn't everything, because who actually believes that?? But when all is said and done, money doesn't mean jack-shit if you have not been able to connected with someone with whom you can laugh and cry and love.

  18. This question mines one's heart's desire in the vein of: what would you do if you couldn't fail? A useful exercise for determining core values and aspirations. As a life coach, I love helping uncover and identify what truly makes someone happy.
