If you were rich, you would....

Do you ever think of the things you would like to do if you were rich?

Not the things you would like to buy, but things you would like to do?

Things that would be much easier to accomplish if you had a lot of resources.

I decided that on a couple of important ones, I will skip the "getting rich" step and tackle them NOW.
It may not be as easy, but not at all impossible.

One of my goals was "If I was rich, I would have time and resources to become really fit and have a great body. I would have personal trainers and nanny for when I need to work out."

Is it possible to get fit without those things? Yes. Not as easy but entirely possible. I've been doing this for the last month and a half. My husband is very supportive and will take care of the baby whenever I need to run. I have been cooking healthy and exercising about 5 times a week. I've dropped 14lb in 42 days and fit into size SM again! This is a lifestyle change, and it is hard, and sometimes I don't feel like running after a full day of work plus 2 hour daily commute, little sleep, making dinner/cleaning up, taking care of the baby... when it is 10pm already and I am tired. But I still do it. Because I have to.

2. If I was rich I would spend more time with my family. How can I do that now? Flexible schedule, long vacations, outing together. We do what we can now. Next year, I want to rent a house for a month in some beautiful spot like maybe New Zealand or some charming town in Europe, and spend a whole months, with neither of us going to work and just being together leisurely every day.
I can arrange that without quitting our jobs, so that will have to do. That is still a lot better than nothing.

What are your "if I was rich" wishes that are attainable even if you bypass the "rich part".
