If you could … Have just 1 wish , knowing that this 1 time you could have what you wished for , what would you wish for ? My guess almost everyone would say money as money these days is the key to everything , if you have it you are ok but if not then you are in deep do do’s . How much money would you wish for ? Just enough to pay your bills and have a bit left over , or enough for that then a bit more to help out family ? Or would you think really big and just say give me millions then I can do all that and more ? If wishing like that tho you have to remember that once you have that sort of money it changes you , and not for the good you sit back and say ” well all is well now I am in charge of my life now ” but are you ? Are you really ? That to me is the million $ question , but for me personally I very much doubt it as that much money brings about that many problems too and I could do quite well without any more problems.
Would you wish for a new house or a new car or a holiday ? If you got a new house where would it be , somewhere different or just around where you are now ? Would the house be a mansion with it’s own pool , it’s own park , a boat and a jetty to go with it , and a nice new car or 2 to suit the new situation ? This would mean if you went this way you would then be in a whole new class of people , and don’t tell me that doesn’t happen as it does , class is still very much an issue all over the world. So a new mansion and all that goes with it , means a whole new you and a new lifestyle would you wish for this ? Getting it all in 1 go so you don’t have to run round and get it all bit by bit , letting someone else do the leg work while you sit back with a drink , it would be a huge change in your life could you handle that ?
Would you wish for your own island ? A place where you can go to escape from all the pressure and reality of real life and all that goes with it , that has some merit but again I think there would be quite a few drawbacks to this lifestyle as well , there is no 1 lifestyle that has no drawbacks so I think you would have to seriously think it through . It sounds so good to just be able to be your own boss, have who you want on your island , have what you want on it but unless you have the right kind of company it could also be very lonely and end up like a prison , your own prison but yes a prison none the less . Do not think I would want to do this , then there is the medical side of things you would be too far away from any real help if you needed it , it may well turn out to be too good to be true .
How about a nice big boat ?? A nice big boat that you could live on and go where you want when you want , and as I know you can get them anywhere and they are just the bees knees of boats they have everything you could ever want as long as you stay on them , some even have storage for cars so you can dock and go ashore without having to worry about transport , they also have smaller boats if you just want a bit of speed racing or sight seeing if you don’t want to go from the big boat . Sure sounds like fun but again there would be drawbacks to living on a boat all the time , as well as the sorts of problems you would get with that island you would get those and more if you tried to live on a boat . Tho to be fair with both of those options you could even have your own helicopter or light plane which would help a lot in time of need , but they will not help in a storm or high seas .
So what way would your thinking go ? would you go the all for me option, or the help everyone option or help some and retire to your own world ? Would you even want to help others ? Too many people these days are only for themselves so too many would take this option and just do their own thing and sod the rest of the world . Or would you go so far with trying to help everyone that you lost yourself in it all and it became too much and you ended back at square 1 ? Just because you suddenly got a lot of money does not mean all of a sudden you have no more worries , if anything it just gives you more of them , then you have problems you didn’t have to start with , you need a whole new mindset to cope with something that life changing .
So what would your wish be for ? Money ? Fame ? Glory ? Or something entirely different ? Something that money cannot buy , like happiness for you and your family or just for you , or health for you and your loved ones or again just for you ? This is a question that again could take you round and round in circles if you just sat and thought about it , give you a right headache trying to work out what way to go with it , but the thinking needed for it is not for everyone , a lot would just react with passion , and while in heat of passion before thought has even had a chance , they have made a decision that had it been made with a bit of thought and not rushed into could have been so much better for you and all around you.
My wish if I was allowed to have just 1 would be for just 1 day , 24 hours pain free , and to be able to do things that I have not been able to do for many years owing to ongoing pain , coupled with that for my loved ones to find the way to God who tho I hurt lots has still been and always will be right by my side . So think hard and think right , what would your wish be for ??
Based on the amount of money in my retirement account I have no objection to them raising the retirement age to 247…
