Dreams

One of my favourite swedish bloggers (JonnaJinton) asked her readers what they would do if they had lots of money, and wouldn't have to worry about getting money. 
That is a question I think too much about actually. My life would be so different then. maybe it's superficial to say this, but I belivie I would feel so much better mentally. Because most of my daily worries includes money. I'm working 75%, which doesn't pay very well, and even though I'm constantly apply for jobs that seems interesting, I'm not sure my body could handle a job with more hours. 
I DREAM about having money. So I could do what I really want. I sometimes feel trapped at my job, because working in restaurant was not what I aimed for when I went to pastryschool and took the project management classes. 


I have so many ideas what I would do if money weren't an issue. But most of all, my biggest dream that seems so so far away is starting a catshelter. Saving cats, being with cats, giving cats a new homes <3 Wonderful!


Now I'm curious. What would you do if you had that sort of money? :)

  1. Yes, I know what you mean, after the problems of last year I don't think I could be a full time worker either, I don't think my anxiety would allow it anymore! I would like to be able to work part time in something I love or write full time! I would like to have a big house where friends could stay with gardens and woods! I dream about this house all the time! It would probably also be good to have a house in the city to make it easier to see my friends more often! Money has been the cause of a lot of stress, having enough not to worry would be such a relief!

    1. Yes, I would also be happy if I would be able to work maybe 50% and still could afford to do fun stuff rest of the time :P

      I hope you will get that house someday :)

  2. Jonna - den absolut mest inspirerande människan ever. ^^
    Jag vet hur du känner och tyvärr är det så att pengar styr typ 90 % av problemen man har. Och ångesten.
    Jag planerar fortfarande att vinna några miljoner eller en sån där 25.000 kr/mån i 25 år. Det hade varit awesome! Det kan du ju också satsa på! :D
    (Kanske ska börja köpa lotter om man nu vill vinna... ) xD

    1. Ja verkligen, jag önskar jag kunde få bo där med henne ibland ;)

      Haha, samma här, det vore en episk vinst! Tyvärr så köper vi nog också trisslotter för sällan för att ha nån chans xD

  3. Oh I think about this too. In fact, I thought about it today. I would definately stay home and write. I would have more kids.

  4. It depends what you term a lot. For me, a life changing amount of money was the small legacy my dad left me last year. It wasn't enough to pay off the mortgage or party like a lottery winner - but it is enough for me to take 3 years off work and change the whole direction of my life. He left me 2 years salary (I worked part time), but with prudence it stretches beyond that and I've been surprised by how little I need to live on day to day now I'm not stress eating my way round Newcastle in my lunch breaks and comfort buying clothes & books that I don't really need. I'm now well into the research and novel development on a full time basis that I've always dreamt of, and have now started writing the boom properly. And that makes me more fulfilled than anything else possibly could. I hope the old man is proud of me.

    (There is a caveat - my husband does still work and while I pay some of our bills, he takes on the lion's share which I do sometimes feel guilty about. He tells me to take the time and run with it. He's also priceless).

    1. That sound wonderful :D I'm happy that you got the chance to do that.
      I bet he is proud of you that you're going for you dream!
      And you shouldn't feel guilty if your husband says it's okay. I wish you the best of luck with your writing ^^

    2. Thanks! So far I've learnt it's rather hard to sit down and write a book from scratch but I will persevere :)

  5. I would buy the castle that I have wanted for years. It would feel so extremely great to say to my father (who screamed that I was an idiot that dreamed of living there) that I live there. But one day I SHALL live there.
