Worksheet #4 – What Are You Passionate About?
If you won the lottery today, and could afford to do anything, go anywhere, buy all the art supplies you needed, even hire people to help you – what would you do with that freedom?
1. Buy a house by the ocean, maybe in San Diego, by the ocean where the water is warmer. Of course, my art cottage would be in the backyard.
2. Take a long vacation to Australia and meet my blogging friend, Christine. See the sights and enjoy my family who would all be with me. I would also take a trip to the U.K. and see my friends Steven and Sherri; I would take Jill with me!
3. Put my kids through college wherever they wanted to go.
4. Open a public studio in town to sell my work at; hire my daughter to run it in the summers and someone else during the school year.

Wow! Thanks, Patsy! I’ll keep my suitcase packed! Like yourself, if I ever won the lottery, I’d like a writing retreat at the beach and in the mountains. Other than that, our life would stay much the same with the winnings going into the bank and investments. It’s nice to dream.
I hope you had a great holiday!
You’re welcome, Jill! Like I said in my other comment, I don’t play the lottery. But it’s fun to dream! What you would do sounds great, too! I hear you about some of the winnings going into the bank, etc. I agree. I just didn’t think of it. 😉
I did have a nice holiday. Our friend, Jackie, who just lost her husband came over for a visit and we barbecued some chicken and had potato salad, ranch beans and broccoli salad. Hope you had a great one, too.
I would quit my job and be a stay at home mother.
I would pay for my little sister’s wedding. We love to travel, so we would definitely take some trips. My first choice would be Cambodia, but not very child friendly, so possibly start with some US destinations. Mai is fascinated by Mt. Rushmore right now, so maybe there.
We would buy a new house with enough rooms to have a separate playroom, a man town and an art studio.
I would help out my dear friend and her family. They have endured financial hardships for the past five years with her husband’s rare cancer. Between one income and numerous medical bills they could use a financial boost.
That is it for now I think. I have most of everything I need. 🙂
Those are some pretty awesome things to do! I actually don’t play the lottery, but it was fun to think about! 🙂
Thanks for the link! I appreciate that. You can read my autobiography at http://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com/ if you are interested. It is a work in progress. 🙂 Thanks again!
