Daily Prompt: No Longer a Mere Mortal, Thank God


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?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LONGEVITY.

I have this feeling I would take more risks in some ways, and other things would stay the same. Is there a magic wand that goes with this ability? :0)

Being incapacitated freaks me out, like being injured in a fall, and laying in a bed all day. Being immortal means I could do things like rock climbing, sky diving, and not have to worry about ending up like a pile of oatmeal.

There would of course be the realization that I have to eat even better and try harder to keep in shape, because being immortal doesn’t mean I will never be sick, it just means I will always be here no matter what, at least this is the way I look at it.

Longevity is a tricky word. It may imply to some people they can do what they want, eat what they want, and they will never get sick…. but read your instructions carefully, and don’t wish for something you don’t fully understand.

Laying in that hospital bed and being 500 years old, is not my idea of being immortal.

Being a ” God’, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Next time you blow out those birthday candles, choose wisely.
