I often wonder, how much do I really need?
We have a lotto syndicate at work where we all put in a dollar a week. Obviously we haven't won big yet- I would have told you- but I have constant disagreements with people about how much is enough.
Think about it. How much do you reeeallly need?
Enough to pay off your mortage/ buy a house?
Enough to buy a new(er) car?
Enough for a trip around the world?
Enough to take your husband to a few michelin restaurants?
Enough for a trip to Melbourne for a week to so shopping and eating???( and visiting bloggy friends)
One of my pet hates is when the topic of winning money comes up and people will say "a million dollars is not a lot these days". This comment , probably more than any other, (actually that's not true, the "I am not racist but" probably come in in first place...) ahem.. this comment really makes me feel frustrated. I just cannot believe that people think a million is not enough.
A million dollars.
1 million dollars.
That is so much money I cannot beleive you couldn't do a lot of good with that. I think, you could change your life completely with that. Completely. And the fact that you are going to be given it for nothing SURELY makes it an even bigger amount of money doesn't it?! Its not like you have to earn it? Or some horrible tragedy occured and you got it in compemnsation. You are getting it- hypothetically- for nothing!
My other issue is when they have prizes that are for $10million or $200 million. It is ridiculous to give someone that kind of money. Why not divide it up so a whole load of people in $500 000? Its just to stressful- mad to think it wouldn't make there life difficult!
See, when I wish to the lotto gods I just want $30 000. To do all the bits to the house that we want to do.
Thats all. I would be happy with anything probably squeal over $100! But $30 000 would do me.
