What's your dream come true?

Pretend for a moment that you are me. You are happily married, you have 2.5 kids in highschool, you have big money in the bank/stock market (let's say 5 million dollars), and you are at goal weight. What's next?

Well, my next goal would be to see a therapist. I would try to uncover what I really wanted for me. Is it a new career? Do I want to start a business? What have I always wanted to do with my life, but was too afraid to go for it?

I would just enjoy doing things with my family... trips, holidays, as well as everyday life. Enjoy every minute. And count the days until grandchildren come along to spoil!!!

Personally I've thought about what I'd do if I hit the lottery and could do anything I wanted. I'm already happily married, I have 2 kids they aren't in highschool but I wouldn't want to age them faster than they already are, and I'm trying to maintain my goal weight.

If I had endless money I would quit my job, and my husband and I would start our own company. I also would like to go to my church and ask my pastor for the names of some of the neediest family in the church and give them each like $10-$20K gifts. I'd love to start some non-profit organization to help low income families that make too much money for government aid but are working and trying and can't make ends meet. I would like to travel to the Sarengetti of Africa, to Australia, China, London, Paris, Sicily, etc.

I'd travel the world. Start my own company. Try to give back in some way. Go on an archeological dig. Build a house from the ground up. Hike. Ride in a hot air balloon. Go fishing in Alaska. Build a treehouse. Build a playground in an area that doesn't have one. Swim with dolphins. Become a singer...I plan on doing all of these things anyway...oh, and I've always wanted to go to a restaurant, and if the waitress was wonderful, give her a huge tip (like a grand). I was a waitress for a few years.

It's kinda hard to pretend to be you OP when we don't know how happy you are with your life, what your interests are and what fufills you. Are you seeking spiritual, professional or personal well-being? What makes you happy? What type of personality do you have? Are you very driven? or more laid back? What are you passionate about?

I am a (rather) driven professional who loves my area of expertise, and being snugged into our little house or hiking outdoors in the mountains with my husband makes me happy. i am happy with my spiritual life, fufilled in my relationships (lots of family and friends nearby) and in better and better health every day. My professional life is the place where I would strive for more change. Therefore I would go back to school for my master's. I am fortunate that I really love my field, but I don't quite have the time or financial freedom to pursue a master's in it full-time, and it would really help me acheive the career goals that I would like.

I would also take a bit more vacation so we could take trips to more distant destinations, but the education is the biggie.

The idea of the first poster was seriously a fairly good one if you need some assistance with your introspection. Best wishes to you OP! That sounds like a terrific position to be in. :-)

If it was me and the kids were in high school I would start doing stuff for me. I would take those flying lessons I've always wanted to do. I take a month off and travel Europe. I'd go to all the places I've always wanted to see. Then I would find something I really enjoy doing, something that just makes me happy and do it. Maybe study art, learn how to draw and paint or sculpt. I'd also want to get involved with helping troubled teens.
