From the Top – prompt from the Daily Post

From the Top

If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.

This is not an easy choice and the main reason for that is that I have children and grandchildren. If I didn’t have them and the thoughts that I would live life without them, I would wish to be reborn as a princess. Most little girls dream of being princesses and I am no different there.

I have always thought I was born to the wrong class. I was born into poverty with serious mental issues right from the start and then young in life I started the physical issues.

I would love to be a beautiful, black-haired princess with her own horse and a prince and live happily every after in a beautiful castle.

However, fairy tales don’t exist and so I guess I would want the life I have as I have grown into it and am used to having my children and grandchildren as an important part of my life.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  1. I don’t want to come back. This can be a nasty realm at times. I don’t see the purpose for being here quite frankly. I would rather go to what awaits for me on the other side. Be well

    Interesting. Why black haired?


  3. Well written piece. As someone who believes this life leads somewhere but no one has come back to say where, I would rather find out than be reborn to live on a planet fuelled by hate. Love is the more powerful emotion as it brings life not take it away. I believe we should adopt a New World Anthem and I nominate Imagine.
