I Won The Lottery

I did not really win the lottery and here I go lying to you all again. I think I get a certain glee from it. I often wonder if this is how a politician feels when they lie to the public? To be fair, my title is not misleading at all because this post is about what if I won the lottery? No,. this post is not what I would do with the money and how I would save the planet or the human race. I wonder how winning the lottery would make my life miserable. You always here stories of people who win big end up miserable. They even made a show about it here in the US how winning the lottery ruined people's lives. I just do not get how winning the lottery could do that. If fact, I kind of do not buy it and would like to test this theory. Even if winning the lottery was not cracked up as many make it sound. It has to be better than being poor. I get society always takes the joy out of everything, but with money I could disappear from the haters, the greedy, the jealous and envious. What about you? Do you think winning it big in the Lotto would make your life miserable? Would your family turn on one another? Could you handle all the charities, corporations and business people trying to get a piece of your new found pie? Would you also like to test the winning lotto theory?

If I won the lottery I would move and change my name.

That is what I am saying. Seems simple to me. I guess I also do not have a big family and a lot of friends. So it is not that complicated for me and that is why you keep your life as simple as possible.

For me, I already know the answer. If I won the lottery I would invest some of it, I would help myself, family and others who may be in need and most of all - I would be happy.

That sounds pretty reasonable and glad to see you are not scared.

I really do not play either. I do hope I am like that one person who was down to their last dollars and about to be homeless. Bought a ticket and won. Meaning I only plan on playing the lotto one more time and if I do not win that is it. That is what I say now. lol

I would like to test winning the lotto. I am good at saying "No!" I would donate a whopper amount to the 3 charities I support now, and family members would sign documents that would state the given amount was the only amount that will be given and a nice sum it would be.

Surely winning all that money wouldn't make my life miserable, but it might bring on various obstacles/hassles I had not been expecting. I can imagine certain family members coming out of the woodworks to beg for their share, the guilt trips, the various folks I would have to let down (I couldn't possibly be obligated to help everyone I know, could I?) . . . I think I could handle them, but I'd just hate to go through all that - it could be emotionally draining in other words. But as far as the money goes, I'd be smart about it and do with it what I see fit. I think the ones who are miserable are the ones who wastefully use up all the winnings and end up with nothing in the end.
