We’ve all had those dreams where we look down and realize that we have the winning lottery numbers staring at us and everything that our heart desires could be possible. I know I’ve had that dream countless times, sometimes it’s nice to imagine what life could be like and how you’d treat not just yourself but the people who are closest to you. A lot of people say money doesn’t buy you happiness, but I’d disagree in a sense and say that money can contribute to happiness, especially if used in the right way.
The first thing I’d do if I won the lottery would be to buy myself a house. I live in a two bedroom flat at the moment and while I love it I’d love to have a house where I could have my own study, a library room, a swimming pool and of course it means I could have cats. I would happily buy a house which needed work doing to make it into the perfect space for myself.
Next up I’d pay off the mortgage on my parent’s house and ensure that they had enough money to live on. I am super close to my parents and don’t know where I’d be without them and I’d want to make sure they were well looked after, providing the win was enough I’d love to give them enough that they could both retire super early (they’re 52 and 54) so that they could enjoy life. Straight after doing this I would buy a house for my brother and his girlfriend so that they had a foundation for their futures. It’s so hard to buy a property now that I’d love to help them out if I could.
Of course after all the mortgage/ house talk it would be time to head out on a luxury holiday to somewhere with clear blue sea’s and plenty to do. I’m thinking somewhere like the Maldives, Bahamas, St Lucia or somewhere like this. I’d take my family and close friends and make sure that everyone had the chance to relax and enjoy themselves. I’d also take this opportunity to fly first class as it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.
After I’d done the houses and holidays I’d buy a new car because who wouldn’t?! I’d also get new cars for my dad and brother if the money would allow this. And I’d also grab either an old school VW camper van to do up or some sort of caravan to use as my festival mobile home for when I go to festivals. While hotels would always be the ultimate luxury I think I’d rather be onsite on a festival but in nicer surroundings.
