I have read about how many people who win a big lottery ends up broke a few years later because they made a lot of bad decisions. Families have broken up and people have got into drugs. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be an overnight millionaire so I will not judge these people. I would hope that I would not lose my mind and blow millions of dollars in a few years. I personally don’t play the lottery every week and sometime nor do I even play it every month but I do play it from time to time. I certainly buy one ticket when the jackpot gets in the 200-300 million range well, usually I do. Sometimes I forget or it’s not convenient to stop. When I buy gas, I never go in the store.
I do enjoy dreaming and buying a lottery ticket for a jackpot that is big certainly feeds my imagination. I think it is healthy to use our imagination in moderation however; as with most anything, over indulgence is not healthy and generally creates circumstances that make life more difficult. If I happen to win big Wednesday I would still write though; I would not be so inclined to work the proverbial 9-5. So dream a bit but, don’t go all loopy. ~b
