I love to dream. I dream about things I would like to do, places I would like to see, amazing experiences I want to give my children. Dreaming is a huge part of what we do. Creating inspirational stories and timelines of things and experiences we want keeps us focused and charged to move forward in a positive direction.
In our home we have vision boards. We all have our own and they are scattered through our house. We show pictures of anything we want from a new watch to an amazing place the kids would like to visit. I’m a huge advocate for visioning and working hard for what you want but my little secret is that I also love to play lotto and here’s why.
My little Nan won first division lotto when I was 13. Back in those days the money went straight into the bank and wasn’t to be touched unless it was really, really, really needed. I remember my Grandad asking Nan for a new car and her response was “what’s wrong with the one you’ve got”? Safe to say Grandad didn’t get his new car, he never asked for one again and his ‘old’ car we only sold last year! It was a beauty.
What lotto did give our family were two things. Peace knowing that Nan and Grandad would always be able to take care of themselves and it also gave them an opportunity to have money for unforseen circumstances. My grandad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and when Nan passed suddenly Grandad’s Alzheimer’s accelerated quickly. My dad and my aunties were then able to use the lotto money Nan won to pay for a full time carer for Grandad so he never had to leave his home. This gift that lotto granted us was absolutely priceless.
Every year Lotterywest shares millions of dollars raised from the sale of the games to help support a variety of projects that improve the lives of Western Australians. It’s for these reasons I’m fond of lotto.
I love buying a ticket and dreaming of all things I could do if I was lucky enough to win. Although if I won, I would probably do things a little differently to my little Nan.
A 6-month family “staycation” in our own Tuscan Villa would absolutely be on the cards. Indulging in the Tuscan lifestyle whilst immersing my kids in the ultimate cultural experience. Not having to worry about work and just ‘being’. I get goose bumps just thinking about it.
Safe to say that lotto has touched my life in a positive way and I know that when I’m not winning my own millions, I’m still contributing to touching other peoples live through the Lotterywest grants.
So not only will I always be in it to win it but I will hold on to that dream of what winning the Saturday #Lotto Superdraw could really do for me and my family.
