If Money Wasn’t An Issue, How Would You Live Your Life?
If money wasn’t an issue — I.e. all bills were paid for, a roof over your head, always food on the table and you never had to work again — how would you live your life?
This question was posed in an article written by ⭐ Ryan Justin in which he tagged me in a challenge to write my own story.
I read the question to include an unlimited access to money since I currently do not have money worries or pressure to earn a living thanks to wise investments I made when I was young and a comfortable marital separation agreement whereby my basic economic needs are met. In this regard, life wouldn’t change that much in terms of my day to day meaning I don’t have a job I would like to quit.
But, if there suddenly was an enormous surplus of cash available to me, I would set up everyone in my family in whatever living arrangements they would be most comfortable in. I would pay off their mortgages if they wanted to stay in their homes, or buy them something more comfortable if they preferred.
For myself, I would relocate to a place where it never snows. I would hire staff to help with activities of daily living which pose challenges for me due to my disability. I would set up rehabilitative facilities such as therapeutic horseback riding and pool therapy, perhaps with a view of the beach (because I’ll probably be someplace like St. John while I’m fantasizing). I’d spend most days engaged in rehabilitative pursuits. A personal trainer would help me exercise in my private gym. My on site massage therapist would work on my broken body. I would be able to go in the ocean in a floating beach wheelchair with the help of staff.
I would love to support my favorite charitable organization, www.manestreamnj.org which provides therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with special needs, including cancer patients and veterans.
I already have just about every material thing I could want so I would not be going on wild spending sprees buying luxury goods. I might want my own jet and a pilot to fly me back to the mainland United States to visit my family from my island.
In the same vein, I would use the jet to continue to travel in the lap of luxury in order to minimize the stress and challenges associated with traveling with a disability.
Thank you for reading :)
