Can you imagine winning the Powerball jackpot and receiving a lump-sum cash payment of $930 million before taxes? It sounds crazy and I know a lot of people who have at least bought one ticket (at $2 per play). The chances of winning the Powerball jackpot prize is 1 in 292 million. I highly doubt I’ll win but it’s nice to dream.
I don’t think I’d change my lifestyle but it would be nice to be able to travel more and buy nicer things but in the end I’d be happy not having to ever worry about money.
I’m pretty content and happy with my life. Sure there are the typical struggles of daily living but I can definitely say life is an adventure.
Right now I’m thinking of what I’d do if I won and “emptiness” enters my mind. I do know I’d like to pay off my mortgage and remodel my home and maybe buy a new car. I think I’d also donate a lot of it or create a foundation that I believe in. Other than that I don’t think too far in advance.
I like to focus on the present tasks I need to accomplish today so I don’t think too far ahead in the future. Events that happen today can change your future completely so I have a difficult time dreaming what it’d be like to win the jackpot. There’s just too many things to do today.
This post helped me think a little bit more about dreams of not having to worry about money. Because I’m content in my life, I know I’m in a good place whether or not I win the jackpot tonight.
