Maybe you got a job or a promotion just when you needed to or wanted to, or maybe you bought a car that wasnt new but was in such good condition it was like it was new, or you and your spouse had gotten pregnant just when you were thinking it would never happen. Have you personally felt like you have won the lottery in other areas of your life?

          Watching the television series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey puts winning the "lottery of life" into perspective.

            What a great thread! Now, this is what I'm talkin' about! For the most part, every one of us here is FILTHY RICH EVERY SINGLE DAY. We WAKE UP enclosed in our right minds with a reasonable portion of our health, strength, and well-being. We're able to work and buy the things we want to eat, wear, and go places we want. Your loved one's are still around and healthy for the most part. You're rich in every day life due to thes things in particular...everything after that is really just icing on the cake when you really think about it.

            A jackpot win is nothing without the health to enjoy it or the mindset to share it and help others. I know for fact that I'm already filthy rich...woke up up this morning filthy rich.Smash

              Yes , I was struggling financially and I have been trying to get a internship for years. Just when I was about to give up I got the call telling me I have been accepted and that it was exactly in the area of my interest in the type of company I wanted.

               

              I know some of my friends applied and I felt like they were better candidates but I was the one who got the offer.

                          I am grateful for having a wonderful husband and a healthy 2-year old son. Granted my husband finished his residency a year before opening his practice but we still have a huge tab for medical school. We put away a huge portion towards retirement while paying down our student loans and mortgage.

                          We already have a structured plan and will certainly do fine without ever winning a lottery jackpot but it would make life a little bit nicer if we did. If I had to choose between having my family or being alone and winning the lottery, I would choose my family every single time.

                            All my divorces were like winning the lottery even though they all cost me a house, savings and a vehicle or two.

                            I have found that a lotta wimmins just don't understand me and my charity work teachin' underprivileged wimmins how to slow dance.
