Well obviously it will allow you to do the things you spend years saving up for. So I would be happy - HOWEVER on that NOTE! Would Robin Williams swop all his riches for a healthy life? I would prefer health and time with my family...however a nice balance would be GREAT!
Well I have a dream of taking my 3 sons to Africa, and if they want 'any' of the money and they will, then they have to help me feed and look after the dying, and poor.
It will change them forever.
That's what I would love to do.....and we all would make a huge difference building water wells and whatever else we could do.
I so would love to do that so badly....Let them see how the poor in the world live, and don't live.!
I have always believed that if people travelled, learned two other languages, saw the world and experienced the other ways of existing, there would be a lot less prejudice and a lot more empathy in the world. I like your idea :-)
Yes, it would allow me to pay of my mortgage and travel overseas with my family before the kids grow up. Which would make me happy. I live a very frugal life, but sometimes all the counting every cent is really exhausting and I want to just go and spend!
No! I am quite content with all I already have! A small amount would make me happier than a large amount I think!!! No amopunt of money can give me good health,so,as that would be my all-time personal wish,the money is not an issue!
Personally, I think so. When compared to others, I barely spend any money, I don't have it to spend. Still, I like to think that if a large bundle of cash landed in my lap that I wouldn't squander it. I would live a full life, without the constant pressure of not knowing if I'll be able to pay my bills next month, or feed myself and my wife. I think I would be happier solely for that reason.
Would it make me happier ? .. On a superficial level, yes it would. I could buy a nice house, set my children up financially, travel, help,others. On a deeper level though .. No, it wouldn't fill up the holes, no amount of money could, that peace can only come from your spiritual quest.
Yes! I hate having to worry about how much we can spend on food, not being able to pay for clubs outside of school for the kids, panicking because they need new shoes but we can only afford cheap ones that don't fit properly etc. I hate money but it does give you freedom, it's not so much a greed and material thing. I'm used to not having much and that's fine but I want more for my kids.
Would ease finances a lot.
Do some 'bucket list' travelling.
Build a BIG, lowset home!
But my biggest wish would be to buy acreage somewhere nice, & have shelters for poor animals abused & abandoned etc etc etc.
The animals I'd have would be Horses, Donkeys, Dogs & Cats.
Saw a doco on tv about a woman just north of LAX, who has 1000 acres & she's got about same number of cats! She has a large number of staff to help her, & at meal times she looks like she's 'impersonating' the Pied Piper of Hamelin!
What sight to behold, ALL those cats following her! How marvellous! Wish there were more humans like this!
Yes. We could buy our youngest daughter & her lovely partner a bigger house, & we'd take 2 cruises a year instead of 1. I'd also love to visit every country in Europe. (I've only visited 6, with about 16 hours in another country!)
