Today I'm enjoying my first time linking up with five great ladies for some Girl Chat.
Once a month Sierra, Danielle, Emily, Lindsay and Lizzie link up to share some ideas to help us get to know each other better.
Today's topic is:
What would you do with a million dollars?
Wow! What a topic I decided to join on.
A million dollars is a LOT of $!
I often used to think what I would do if I won the lottery.
Now, I don't play the lottery, but it's great to think what I would do if I did and won.
My first thought always goes to paying off any debt we might have.
Whether that be a house, school loans or cars.
From there I'd want to help my family out.
I think I would give $25,000 to my mom, dad, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin and grandma.
They are the closest people to me and have always been around.
I don't want life to be hard for them, and I want them to be content with the money they have.
I really have no idea how much I would distribute, but $25,000 popped into my head.
After that I'd like to offer more to my parents for doing everything they ever have for me.
I truly believe I had the best childhood.
I can't complain about how my parents raised me.
They didn't give me everything (but I didn't do without) because they knew that would make me believe I could have everything I wanted, but they taught me the value of hard work.
I really respect the values they instilled in me.
Alex and I have dreamed about building our own home, so we would probably put a chunk of money away specifically to build a house.
I'd also like to give some money to a particular charity.
My brother is a type one diabetic and my aunt had breast cancer, so finding something to help those two causes would be near to my heart.
I would definitely want to save a lot of the money.
Investing some of it would be a great idea for life down the road.
One thing I for sure wouldn't do is quit my job.
I really don't think I'm made to stay at home.
I get bored far too easily and need daily job challenges to keep me occupied.
I'm sure I've forgotten a lot, but wow what a topic.
What great ideas do you all have if you won a million dollars?!
