But What If?

What if for one day you had the power to live out your dream? Think about a day to live out something you've always wanted to do. It could be anything from spending a day with your crush, to visiting J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. Anything. Options would be unlimited, and it wouldn't effect everyday life. It'd be as though you were taking some "Me Time", but no time really passes at all. You could live the day out as a Princess locked away in her tower, as Prince Charming comes to rescue you. Or think about a day where you were a Superstar. Fame and riches galore. Wouldn't that be fabulous?

If I were to live out a day, in my choosing, I'd start it off at Hogwarts. Yes, J.K. Rowling's beautifully written school. I would spend half the day practicing magic with Hermione Granger, playing Quidditch with Harry Potter, and enjoying the delicous food in the Great Hall with Ron Weasley. Then the rest of the day I would spend in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. There I would party with Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee. We'd eat the fine Hobbit food, and enjoy some of Gandalf's fireworks.

The only negative thing about this, is it only lasts one day. A full twenty four hours you'll have to yourself. At least you'd get to have an escape. It's like a dream that you could actually live out. Just think about it, what if you could do that. Sure people will tell you to get your heads out of the clouds, and focus on reality, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to fantasize about living your dream. Who knows, maybe it'll become a reality one day. You can't give up hope.

You'll be told that not all dreams can come true, but what if they could? It could be your chance to really discover yourself. Maybe you'll find a new dream after that. People will say to stick with reality, and that you're wasting your time.

But what if?
