On a run recently my mind was racing with ideas. The mind-racing thing actually happens whenever I am not sleeping. Just so you know. Oh, and sometimes my mouth and mind are racing. And somehow I have friends, a family that speaks to me, and a boyfriend. I don’t drive everyone crazy with this trait.
Back to the story of my run…
I had spent my morning writing before the run. While running, I thought of two more post ideas and wanted nothing more than to come home and write for a few more hours. But laundry and a other responsibilities were waiting for me. Then the idea struck me:
If I won one million dollars I could write all day!
I could write on my blog, guest post more often, launch two other sites I have planned, write the two books in my head, and work on a big photography project that I desperately want to start. It would be great to dedicate my time to these creative endeavors, but things get in the way of what I really want to do. Laundry, cleaning bathrooms, and picking up Lego pieces are a few examples of what is time-consuming in my home on a regular basis.
During the remaining run time I worked out what I would do if I won one million dollars.
Here’s what would stay the same:
- The house I live in.
- The car I drive.
- My circle of friends.
- My boyfriend.
- The work I do.
Here’s what I would change/do:
- Pay my girlfriend’s legal bill.
- Hire a cleaning service for 2 times a week (then I wouldn’t have to do laundry!).
- Buy an iPad for my sisters and me.
- Hire an Apple consultant to teach my youngest sister what it is and how to use it.
- Make sure my passport had a new stamp each year.
