I have been asked what would I do if I won or was given £1,000,000.
Firstly £150,000 would be split 3 ways between my mum, my ex’s mum, and my exs dad. Sounds weird but they did a lot for me and my ex when we were together so I would give them that money free and clear.
Secondly, if my dad was still alive, I would give another £50,000 to my mum for home care support of her choosing.
That takes me up to £200,000.
Thirdly, I would pay off any and all debts that I had so I was financially free and clear.
Fourth, I would complete my dream of owning my dream home. So I would buy a plot of land and have my dream home built on it. It would be energy efficient and good for the environment. It would have a number of rooms so that I could apply to be a foster parent.
I recon that would take up at least another £400,000. So now we are at £600,000.
I would then out money into a savings account for my niece and nephew and any further kids my sister may have. If the interest was good etc hopefully they would not need to worry about the cost of student loans when they turned 18.
Essentially if I was given or won £1,000,000 very little of it would go to me. The rest would go to people who deserve it and to help me help others.
What would you do?
I have decided to challenge myself to write a blog every day of the month of June. This for me is a challenge because there are times when I will admit my disabilities can get the better of me. So, I will challenge myself to blog at least once a day 🙂 Wish me luck
So, I am waiting for my pills to kick in and I am honestly sitting here thinking about why I blog.
When I was diagnosed with my Autism it was like a Eureka moment for me. I had always wondered why I had struggled so much and realized that I needed a way to let out some of the stress I was going through on the day to day with all my disabilities. It really isn’t fun to live like this. Don’t get me wrong I know that I have achieved a lot whilst still having disabilities however it is definitely not fun.
So, I decided that I would blog about what life is like. The highs, the lows and everything in between. I know people do not want to hear about this but by blogging I am able to get the stresses of every day out and it really helps me. I am learning the way to deal with everything and live my life proudly as a disabled person.
Hey everyone, please check this out. I will try and do at least one a week.
When I came back from my much needed holiday to Italy I have come across two things that have made me feel honored.
Before I went away, I did a blog for work about Autism and faith. Essentially it was about how I work around the things that I want to do for my faith whilst also knowing some of my limitations within the autistic side of me.
What I have come back to from work is that some people have contacted me to talk about how they can better understand autism and how they can help people. This is a real honor for me. I am by no means an expert on Autism because I am still learning what Autism means for me, however, if I can help in a small way to make someone’s life a bit easier and to also help encourage more understanding of what Autism actually is then I am very glad.
