    10 more years to live OR 1 million dollars?

    Hi lovelies!

    As we all are at different stages and ages in our lives, I wonder how many of us would chose 10 more years to live while not knowing the day of our death, and how many of us would chose 1 million dollars today?

    Personally I can't help but wonder about all the things I could do with 1 million money! I'm at the prime of my life at age 29, and I could start my own business with that kind of money so I won't have to work as much and enjoy my life a little more. But then I wonder, what if the business plan won't go so well... What if it does go well? What if I have all the happiness and material things in life, but at the end I would wish to give up all of that just have 10 more years to live?

    Today I would pick 10 more years of life. How about you?


    Talk later!

    Hi,

    I would choose 10 more years to live rather than 1 million dollars. I think that the time is precious and there is a lot that we can experience in our lives. For me all that matters is my family. I want them to be happy and healthy and I would like to share beautiful moments with them and other people that I love. I was never very motivated to do things only for money, I could easily live without 1 million dollars, but have 10 years of life and share it with amazing people around me.

    Memories matter to me, rather than money. The time is the most expensive thing that we can’t buy. I don’t need a lot of money to be happy. I would like to keep myself healthy and happy and enjoy this world. If I could add 10 years into my life, this would be the best gift that I could ever receive!

    Have a great day everyone!

    I would prefer the money. 1 million dollars can change your life. 10 years of life simply delays the inevitable. Not that much exciting.

    Hi Sammy,

    It really depends on where the 10 years would be in my life. If they'd just be 10 extra years of being obscenely old, I'm not sure if I'd rather have that than 1 million dollars right now. It'd be nice to have more security knowing that I have some money to fall back on in case I ever need it, not to mention I'm amassing a bit of debt in college right now. It would take a lot off of my mind.

    However, if I could live for 10 extra healthy years I would definitely rather the time. Time is invaluable, something no one can buy, so selling my own seems pretty ridiculous. Who's to say I can't make that million dollars somehow during that 10 years anyway?

    Have a good one.

    Hey Sammy,

    I would pick the $1 million because I want to live in the present and honestly it could really help me out right now. I guess I'd rather die happy with money to help my family out then live 10 years more not knowing if I was going to be happy or not. I think if we were sitting better financially I'd probably pick the 10 more years, but I definitely could use $1 million!

    Have a good day!

    Re: 10 more years to live OR 1 million dollars?

    Hey Sammy,

    No contest! I would take the money. Who knows, I could be dead tomorrow. I want to live to the fullest and make amazing memories with those I love, and hopefully, make a positive impact on the world in the process.


    Thanks for reading!

    I would choose 10 years to be able to know that I can add 10 more years to spend my life in happiness and joy.
