I am reminded of the famous line from "Fiddler On The Roof" and the song, "If I Were A Rich Man". I suppose I am a lot like him in his wishes.
He wished for a big house with one long staircase going up and a "and an even longer one coming down". He wished for free time to do what he wanted instead of work or go to school. He wanted to provide good things for his family so they would be happy and not worry. Of course I would invest some so that my family would be taken care of for the rest of their lives.
There are other people I would help, people we know, people who need help, people who deserve a helping hand to get going, people who will later help others.
Since I don't know anyone who is rich I don't know what these kind of people are like. Oh, sure, I recognize some rich people who help others with their money but I don't know them. This is a little hard for me to imagine because I would not want to hoard the money, I would not want to sit on all my riches and keep it all for myself.
There are some amazing places that I would want to take my family too. Beautiful places and historical places. Places like Rome, London, Paris, Beijing. Other places like the Grand Canyon, the Andes, the Himalayas, the savannas of east Africa.
What would you do with your money if you were rich?
