And yes, I do realize that even though the odds are nearly impossible, the only way of guaranteeing one can NOT win is by not buying a ticket.
I've decided that I honestly, sincerely, do not want to win that much money.
I do not presume to judge anyone else who has decided they want that much money, but for me, I have decided I really do not want the changes that a billion dollars (or half a billion dollars, or a hundred million, or even tens of millions of dollars) would bring.
I realized, in praying about this, that I LIKE my life. I really do.
It'd change my job; we'd likely have to move; it'd stress our friendships. And I'd be famous, not for my writing or the ideas and passion I share, but for being "That Multimillionaire."
In other words, winning the Powerball lottery would change my life.
And while I'd love to accentuate, and improve, and make changes IN my life, I don't want to change my life. I love it, pretty much the way it is.
