Oh, yes, my first million! SCORE!

I don’t have to think twice. If I had a million buckaroos, I would quit my job. I might work for a few more weeks, just to enjoy the secret knowledge that I could quit at any time, but yes, the job would go. It’s stressful, time consuming, just pays “okay” and all my hard work seems to benefit the higher ups, not me. I’m not bitter, it’s just the way things are. I say all this as I drink my coffee, and spend a couple of hours with my awesome family. It’s Sunday morning. Because of pending deadlines, I worked all week, including late nights. I worked all day yesterday and have to go in again this morning. You might say I am feeling a bit frazzled.

After I was blessed with my first million, I might take a few weeks off just to exist in pajamas, lay on the sofa and roll in the grass–WHEEE!–but then I’d focus on my writing, and opening my own business. I’ve always wanted to be my own boss, and I think one day I will be. But until I got my first million (oh, wait, we’re still just dreaming, right?) I haven’t had the cajones to take such a gamble. I’d also get back to volunteering, which in recent years has fallen by the wayside. What’s my interest? The elderly. I’d volunteer for Meals on Wheels or get certified to be an Elder Advocate.

I like to work, and stay busy. But I would rather do something more meaningful to me. The Million would allow me to do that!

What about you - if you haven’t already shared this week, what would be your dream-related-to-a-million$$.

And WELCOME to Joss Ware!

    That sounds like what I’d do - I know however much cash I had, I’d still have to work at something. After a break, of course! And having my own business - yeah. I’d love to be my own boss.

    Warning: Being your own boss means you’ll work for a tyrant who habitually overworks and underpays you.

    But you’re a writer, so you’ll be okay with that :razz:
