This morning I woke up and started asking myself, what do I really want? If I could hand pick every aspect of my life, what would I really want?
Most of us want financial security. Not having to worry about debt, where to live, how to pay for our next trip to the supermarket. Those are kinda givens, but if you had an unlimited amount of money and could do any thing, have anything, what would you really want?
I’m actually struggling with this. If I could live anywhere on earth, where would I want to live? I know I want a nice house, but not huge. I want it to have a pool and Jacuzzi. I’d love to have a solar paneled home. I really don’t know where I would want this dream home be. I have a nice home now, it doesn’t have the extra features I’d like, but it’s a nice home to raise my family in.
If I could have any car in the world, what would I want? Well recently I decided I want a hybrid car, so maybe a Prius or a Tesla. I know I don’t want some crazy sports car. I currently have a used SUV that I do like, although it isn’t perfect it does what I need it to do.
I’d love to travel more with my family, I want to explore this beautiful world we live in. Now I do travel within North America. We typically go somewhere at least once a year. That’s pretty lucky I think.
If I had Oprah amounts of money, how would my day to day life change? I don’t get my nails done, and still wouldn’t, I hate the feeling of false nails. I can’t see myself getting plastic surgery, cause that’s just scary. I would likely buy some new clothes, maybe get my hair done and some self care things like massages.
I find sitting down and trying to think of what you would do if you had no limits, helps you to realize all that you already have.
I think the biggest thing I would do with unlimited financial abundance is become a philanthropist. I’ve always wanted to help others. The happiest I’ve been in life is when I’ve volunteered. Giving back gives such a great feeling. I’d love to travel the world and volunteer in every country, helping others.
What would you do, is there lots in your life you would change? This exercise really helped me realize what a wonderful life I have. Being grateful for what we have and what is to come with help you to live your best life.
