One of the series here on JennyJournals is Would You Rather? a set of questions that asks you to decide between sometimes quite difficult scenarios that may have negative consequences either way.
Why would I want to use these as blog posts? Because it helps you think through options and how your choices impact others and yourself.

Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?
My thoughts immediately went to this;
I don’t have much money or valuables compared to others – what are my “valuables”?
- My computers (yeah, I have more than one – all used when I bought them),
- my jewelry that has mostly been given to me by my longtime boyfriend, but doesn’t have too much meaning attached to it for me. Maybe 2 rings have solid sentimental meaning.
- My TV, which I rarely watch is old, passed down and very replaceable.
Photos I’ve taken. Honestly, I rarely take out hard copy photos to look at, and most of those are photos that someone else took, so I wouldn’t lose those in this scenario, right? Many of the photos that I have taken are of my kids and are housed online or on one of the computers. I’ve lost photos before. They are nice to have, to remember with, but not a necessity.
Both options are something that could easily happen to me. We live in Tornado Ally. I’ve been through a couple of tornadoes where houses on both sides of me were taken out. Everything was gone.
If someone had a gun to my head and forced me to choose in this would you rather scenario, I’d probably choose pictures. As long as my kids and family are safe, and I still have them with me to take more photos, that’s what would matter. It would be easier to deal with for me, than trying to replace computers which is where I earn some of my income and
Which would you choose? Tell me in the comments. I’d love to know your thoughts.
