IF YOU COULD REBUILD YOURSELF

Mar 03, 2016 8:41 AM

It's time to be creative.... If you could rebuild yourself ...like they built the (fictional) BIONIC MAN & WOMAN ...what would you look like? There's no limit! And remember they are even redesigning Barbie these days!!! So have at it... Here is your chance to redesign these failing bodies of ours.

The only thing I would do is reverse whatever damage has been damaged by my diseases and surgeries. Otherwise, God made me who and what I am so I wouldn't change anything else. I'm wonderful just the way I am!! {{{{Hugs}}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻😍

I would like to be the old me .Playing field games .skipping and jumping about with my grandchildren. I can't even walk to the play park with out my feet and ankles hurting it does get me down most days. But that's my dream but that's been shattered. But not being on a downer I do love doing other things with them crafts sawing etc. I no I won't get better and that is what life has delt me and I will get though it. I am a strong willed person really .

Maybe I should reverse the clock 15 years, to when I felt at my best, even with some ailments already started. But no, that means my granddaughter wouldn't exist, nor would we be empty nester's. Maybe I could get a lung transplant along with new healthy immune & circulatory systems. Maybe they could give me a titanium skeleton system. It would have a very long lifetime.

No, wait, the more I think about it, I think I'll just keep this decrepit, older body, with all it's aches & pains & sicknesses. I don't want a bionic body to live forever on earth, to outlive everyone I know & love. I'll get a new body for eternity one day that will be beyond anyone's imagination! Until then, I'll trust Him & you all to get me through the bad days. Hugs, love, & prayers to all! 🙂💕🙏🌼

WoW! Awesome Flappy, Alwayz, and Gizmo! Flappy I believe in eternity and what awaits believers there. My FATHER is preparing my place there. That is exciting because there will be no sickness there.
Feeling down today because with each step I took today my legs scream pain. Slight headache too.
Tired of this body... I would replace some parts... My legs so they wouldn't hurt,... I could jump higher and run faster, My arms so they I could hold baby Jimmy who was dedicated Sunday without screaming in pain because at 9 lbs. he makes my arms hurt when I left him. My eyes so I could see better ... And enjoy the flowers, watch the sun set... And read these posts without having to turn the screen every which way but loose.

I would go back to- just to before my health, ability to do, think, see & hear went bad and I'd have my energy back. I would want to be a more effective person and keep working. But I'd still look like me and I don't want to be on this earth forever. Good question & beautiful thoughts, all.

This topic had me stumped and reading flappys and always response I'm like oh...I'm so selfish..because as I thought about this question all I could see was a totally different person then now..
So here goes..
I would have a healthy BMI blood pressure normal controlled by diet only. I'd be just as sexy as I am now but with a healthier spirit so that I could manage my own situations and be in a position to aid my friends.

I think at this point I'm willing to stay just the way I am. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and as my parents told me numerous times, God don't make junk.

Wow! I really wouldn't change much. I'm gonna be a little selfish and change a few things about myself. 1 would be my nose, I hate my nose I smell everything. 2 my belly um I eat way to many cookies. And 3 more energy, I remember when I had all the energy in the world, I really miss that. But like everyone has been saying God loves me he didn't make me a mistake, all of this that I'm going through is to help someone else. Maybe I can be there for someone in their time of need.

I would change so much...but I definitely don't wanna live "forever" or for very long. I'm young too, so I see a lot of people who just go through life without pain, and it makes me really sad sometimes. I would start by getting rid of my endless sinus infections, and replacing my teeth with more normal, although slightly crooked teeth. I would replace my feet, so I could feel the floor and wear socks without my feet turning colors and going numb. I don't really care how I look, I'd just want to get a chance to see what I could do without pain. I've had maybe three days I can remember with 0 pain. They're totally random, and a lot of fun. But what you can do in one day. ... .compared to a year. ....compared to ten is so different.
I'm pretty sure none of these things will happen, but really that's okay. I'm me, and maybe my life will be worth something, someday. Who knows?

Ferret, your life is worth something right now! Today! You are fearfully and wonderfully made and even with all of our aches and pains, failing parts, and frustrating conditions that doesn't change your/ our worth. We still have something to give, something to share, even in between the ouches, and oh no... We are valuable, usable, and will be missed greatly when gone.
Thanks Loving! I love your post and agree 👅 100%. Our work here isn't done.

If i could would go back to my 20's and tell myself to push the doctors after my different wrecks and injuries because maybe my spine wouldn't be like it is now. Then I wouldn't need to rebuild myself ( :
