My 10 year old son asked a question. "What would you do if you could choose between having a billion dollars, but you will die at age 60, or you can keep your regular income, and live out your normal lifespan?"
What a tough question!
Having a billion dollars is very appealing. There would be so many opportunities available to you with that money. Perhaps you could live a "better" life, or a more joy-filled life. One of the things I love when I go on holidays is the lack of pressure. No bills to pay, or jobs to do, just fun and happiness each day. With a billion dollars we could go on as many holidays as I like. We could travel to all the places I dream of one day seeing. We could literally make our dreams our reality.
On the other hand, my life right now is great. I have a wonderful husband, and two great kids. I spend time with my family and doing things that I love. One day my kids will be grown, and possibly have their own kids. I want to be a part of their adult life and involved in the lives of any future grandchildren. Could I possibly throw that opportunity away for money?
I'm stuck... I don't really know what I would choose. I love the idea of the money, but I can only imagine myself on the eve of my 60th birthday begging for more time. More time to be with those that I love.
This sounds like it would make a great movie! If this gets made I hope my son is given credit for the interesting idea!
Any comments on your choice?
