If you could choose any time period to live in, what would it be?
The answer of to this question has to be the 60’s and 70’s…I would’ve soooo been a hippie! LOL “Peace, Love, and Happiness” sounds like a good mantra to me!
I’m a huge fan of classical music like Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, The Steve Miller Band, and the list goes on and on. Some of the greatest music came out of this era. I would have given anything to have been at the original Woodstock. How unbelievably cool would that have been?!? Both of my parents grew up during this time and it was a complete waste on them. LOL My dad likes horrific music that I can only equate to elevator music and my mom isn’t much better. Give her Celine Dion, Josh Groban, and Barbara Streisand any day. I can’t imagine growing up during this time period and not taking away a love of great classical music! I grew up in the 80’s and I still love the music from back then and listen to it all the time. Neither of my parents listen to anything that dates back to the 60’s and the 70’s. Oh and don’t get me started on my in-laws… They still love the bluegrass country music they grew up on back in the day. At least my mother-in-law also loves modern country, but my father-in-law refuses to listen to anything but bluegrass. I honestly feel this era was wasted on all of them. LOL
Music may be a huge part of why I’d love to grow up on the 60’s and the 70’s, but it’s not the only reason. I actually really loved the styles back then. LOL I know I sound crazy, but the free flowing dresses that a lot of the girls wore or the cute bell bottom jeans? How about the cute dresses with the go-go boots? Sign me up! I mean come on…how cute is that outfit in the picture to the right?!? Love it! Plus, everything was so colorful and cheerful back then.
Last but not least during this era, especially if you were a hippie, everything was all about having a good time. I know what they were doing turned out to be illegal and bad for you, but the concept should still apply. Now-a-days we are all so wound up tight and stressed out. Everything is “go, go go” and it seems like we never have any time to relax and have some fun. Maybe it’s time we take a page out of their book and “chill out” a bit. LOL Maybe the world would be a happier, less stressed out place. I have no statistical evidence to back this up, so chalk this up as pure irresponsible speculation, but I’m willing to be a lot less people had blood pressure issues, heart attacks, etc. back then.
So how about all of you? If you could live during a specific time period what would it be? Would you go back to the Victorian era? When dinosaurs roamed the Earth? Please tell me all about it in the comments below!
