Question: If you found $500 today, what would you do with it?
Answer: That’s a funny and ironic question because I had a similar situation happen to me a few weeks ago on a morning walk. I was walking along the road and found $100 bill, needless to say, I was pretty excited, thinking about what I would do with $100. About a half-mile down the road, I found two more $100 bills – and was getting even more excited. When I was done, I got home and took out my bills – and found out they were fake. They were almost exact copies – except they didn’t have serial numbers on them. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed, but it went away pretty quickly. I share this because I wondered what I was going to do with the money on my walk – and I only thought of three things:
- Save it all as part of my emergency cash fund.
- Save part of it and use some to take Rebecca and I out to a nice dinner.
- Save part of it and then give some to some type of charity/homeless person.
That’s it. There isn’t anything that I want or that I need, so I’m good right now. I know it’s not something flashy, but to be honest, I’m not a flashy guy. Just trying to live with purpose, doing work that makes a difference, and finding time to do things I enjoy each day. Pretty simple…and pretty good.
