If you had one dream what might you wish to fulfill, or do or be
P=NP and here's why.
Filthy stinking rich.
Would you really want that, xena? Think about all the security you'd need.
Win the lottery - £10m should do it nicely
Yeah but I could afford it.
My dream would be to be contented with my lot and not be such a dreamer. Life would be much simpler.
Are you enjoying yourself a bit more, Oldy?
It's not the affording it that should concern you, it's the using it. I have a very rich friend who owns expensive things. He's been burgled a few times on the way to earning his wealth so his house is now like Fort Knox. It's an absolute pain for him to get into. You can tell the number of worries a person has by the number of keys they own.
I've moved between skint and comfortably-off and I've been burgled five times. Still, at least they only got cheap tat for their trouble .
That's easy for you to say - it was a b.ugger to get rid of after we realised it was all tat.
Muffled t itter
I have so many dreams that is hard to know which is first
Travel the whole world on a motorbike must surely be my first.
than again i would also love to teach in a place where I am appreciated.
i could also say that unzipping basques sounds like a dream job
Happiness definitely comes from being contented with your lot. Having said that, my lot would be improved by a lottery win which allowed me to give up work. I would fill my time by puppy walking guide dogs.
Everyone to their own, I guess...
Enough money to own my own property and be financially stable again.
I wouldn't particularly want to give up work but part time might be nice.
After that I agree that the biggest gift you can have in life is contentment. Yearning after stuff they can't have must make people very unhappy and bitter.
Yes, I think you've nailed it there. Having a purpose is the all important thing and feeling happy in what you do day to day.
I'm at the happiest and most contented point that I've ever been in my life but it took a very long time to get here. I have everything I need and have fewer things on my want list as I get older. I suppose the only real thing I want is good health but that's a pipedream these days. However, I remind myself that I'm not going to die from any of my health problems and having had a very close brush with death in the last couple of years, I'm more than appreciative of what I have.
Interesting. Winning the lottery? That's such a lazy response to the question. (And you'd have to play it first, anyway.) Being contented - not very ambitious either.
Whatever happened to big dreamers?
