Life is great, eh! So much to experience in so little time. Here’s your messed-up thought for the day: what if someone disgustingly rich came to you with a strange, sick proposition: “You will be rewarded with one billion dollars in exchange for… …your LIFE!”. In other words, they will pay you this ridiculous amount of cash, and all you have to do it let them strip you of your physical existence. Would you do it?? I would, and here’s why…
We’re all gonna’ die one day, true? I don’t want to go this soon, as there’s lots I’d still like to see and do. I know I have a lot I want to accomplish in life, and I really want to be known for a worthwhile cause before I toss in my towel. However, if I had a billion dollars, I could still reach many of my goals. Sure, I wouldn’t be able to create physical art, or write any more. But I could provide for my kids, nieces and nephews, other family, my charities, and the many, many people who have helped me along in this game of life.
When I mentioned this peculiar notion to my mom, her first response was: “But how could you spend the money, if you were….dead?” I chuckled, as I had obviously considered this. I explained that I do, in fact, LOVE living, and LOVE this amazing life I have lived! I have few regrets, and so much to be happy about.
Although I am only in my 30’s, I have lived a pretty complete life. I’ve experienced so many amazing things in all of the main areas of life (Family, Career, Finances, Health, Spirituality, Social), and I am so grateful! I have struggled much, but also persevered. Many people would not give up their bus seat for others, let alone their lives. But when it comes to supporting loved ones, wouldn’t you do this, too??
Some may say, “Well, I just don’t think you’re worth one billion dollars.” Well, sc*ew you, then. Even the bank – I’m pretty sure the last time they told me my overall new worth, it wasn’t even close to this ginormous figure. Honestly, I do not wish to die. I have so much I want to accomplish in life, and I have more goals than I know what to do with.
So, I am throwing this out there. If someone wants to make a deal, please contact me. Please realize that I cannot accept a payment plan of any kind, and will need the money upfront. Serious inquires only, please.
