Enough. How much is really enough? It’s kind of fun to challenge yourself and see how little you can have to be content. We are used to living with limitations, but what about living without them? That can be harder than expected…

Lotto fever is bigger than its ever been before. They’ve actually changed the odds of winning so that it’s near impossible. But along with nearly impossible, comes possible…Two dollars is truly worth the opportunity to dream!

Recently, the lottery was up to 1.6 billion dollars. That got me thinking…what would I do if I won? Get a new dishwasher perhaps. Have my hair cut. Buy a new pair of shoes. Then what?

Unexpectedly my mind turned to the sea. I dream of being deep down where it is silent and dark and truly a different world. I would love to be in a submarine and explore the undersea world. What?! Where did that come from?

To me, it sounds amazing… I love to snorkel and I don’t trust myself to have a tank and scuba dive. But, in a submarine with a driver and oxygen- I’m all in. I mentioned it to my husband and I couldn’t believe my ears- he said that ever since he was a little boy he had dreamed of going in a submarine. What?! His favorite ride at Disney World is 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. I guess we connect on a much deeper level than I thought!

How about you? If the opportunity arose, what WOULD you do?

    How fun! I love it!! I would want to have constant access to a private jet so I could experience different things all over the world, and Greg said he would like to go to the moon!
