This morning I woke up with the idea that I should do a blog about what I would do if money were not an issue. So here it is. It was actually fun and interesting as to what I came up with. This is something we don’t contemplate very often in our lives.
If money were not an issue I would first send a hundred thousand dollars to each of my sister’s and my brother. I would then send a hundred thousand to each of their kids, and another hundred thousand to each of their kids. For anyone under the age of eight-teen I would put that money into a trust for them to receive at the age of twenty-one.
Next I would buy each of my kids a house and a car. I would offer them a monthly allowance only to be received after a hundred and twenty hours of volunteer work a month is completed. There are also a handful of people who are not related to me that I would love to give a hundred grand to as well. People who have touched my life, people who have went the extra mile to help me out when they didn’t have to.
I would buy a modest home in rural California so Rog and I had somewhere warm to spend the winter months, as well as a small house in my home town because I love the change of the seasons here. I would be sure that where ever we live is surrounded by nature, foliage as far as the eye can see. I would have a meditation garden where I could sit, reflect and become still. I would spend my days writing and being of service to people. I would look into the world of philanthropy as I would want to be sure to give back to those who struggle.
I would not spend extravagant amounts of money on clothes, shoes, and cars. I would still live modestly in order to help other people.
