You just inherited $1,000,000 from an aunt you didn’t even know existed. What’s the first thing you buy (or otherwise use the money for)?
So, I received notice the other day of an Aunt that I never knew I had. She was apparently pretty wealthy as they said I would receive $1,000,000 from her estate. This is great news. I am now wealthier than I’ve ever been or will ever be again. Fantastic. Now to celebrate my rather large inheritance, I must do something. Thinking about things that I want, things that I need, other people in my life….So many possibilities. Do I want to be selfish? I do need a new guitar or 30….but probably not 30. I can barely do anything with one. I could use a vacation, but I honestly have no idea where I would want to go. I’ve grown accustomed to sleeping in when I’m not working. I believe that that might just be vacation enough. Do I want to be generous? Give everyone some cash to do something with? Make a condition a for them? “It must be something that helps you, so think hard.” Do I just give it away? I mean…$1,000,000 sounds like a dream come true, but what would I really do with that amount? What would I do with the first little chunk of that that would be worth telling about? I think I would pay my mom’s house off. It would be a nice little return for helping me out so much over the years….What with raising me and feeding me and pushing me to do whatever it is that I can to the best of my ability. I think that is what I would do.
