I Don’t Want To Be A Millionaire
If you’re like me, you likely dream about winning the lottery. You think about what you would do with all that money. You think about all the things you could buy.
But being a millionaire comes with its own set of problems. Like people being your friend just because you have money. And every person you know thinking that they should get a piece of the pie. Ugh. Who needs that.
If you think about it, it isn’t the money we want. Not me anyway.
I want to be able to pay my bills and not have to worry about whether or not I’ve saved up enough of my tips to cover everything. I want to not have to worry that I might have forgotten everything. I want to be able to give my kids and my granddaughter the things they need to be successful in life, like an education. I want to relax and quit worrying about things so much.
I want peace of mind. I want to be able to buy a decent house that isn’t in need of repairs all the time. And if it does need repairs I don’t want to scramble around trying to figure out how I’m going to pay for it.
You know the old saying,
“Money doesn’t buy happiness.”
Well, only people with money say that.
People without money knows that it can be peace of mind. It can relieve anxieties. It puts food on the table and pays the bills and increases your kids chances of being able to pursue whatever career they want to. Money buys entertainment, which can help relieve stress. Money can buy a lot of things that make life easier.
So, in a way, it does buy happiness. It’s indirect.
Not that you can’t be happy without money. You can. It’s just easier with it.
Does that mean I DO want to be a millionaire?
Nope. Still think it is too much trouble.
I just want enough money to buy some security and pay my bills and keep up on repairs and maintenance on my vehicle.
What do you think?
