Alot of times you may think, “if only I had a million dollars life would be so much better”. This article talks about what that million dollars really signifies and how you can feel like you’re a million dollars richer, now.
This morning, I was feeling a little stir-crazy from being cooped up in my office, so I decided to stretch my legs and go to the cornerstore down the street. I got a bag of chips and while paying, asked the guy behind the counter how he was doing. He responded with a heavy sigh and said â€œTired, man. I need a million dollars and i need to travel. Things are bad right now, man.â€ He made a tired half-joke about how maybe heâ€™d win the lottery scratcher this week.
He didnâ€™t offer any more info and I didnâ€™t want to pry, so I told him that I hoped things would pick up for him, paid for my chips, and left. Walking home, I couldnâ€™t shake a feeling of sadness about the conversation. I know what it feels to have life kick you in the teeth, and feel like you just need to get away from everything. How many times have I thought to myself â€œIf only I had a million dollars.â€ However, Iâ€™ve come to realize that the wishful desire to have an arbitrarily large amount of money is a reflection of lazy thinking.
