10 Things I Would Rather Have Than A Million Dollars

I want to be remembered for my love, not my wallet.

10 Things I Would Rather Have Than A Million Dollars

1. A supportive family.

Who needs a million dollars when you have a family that you know will love you unconditionally? To me, this is worth more than money could ever buy.

2. Close friends.

Friends and family truly are everything. A good support system is crucial to living a life that makes you happy and touches others. Your support system would never really be complete without good friends by your side.

3. A loving boyfriend.

What would I do without my boyfriend? He is my number one fan, my best friend, and a part of my family. He will forever be my rock and my guiding light. If you find someone who makes you smile when he walks into a room, don't let him go.

4. A cat.

Cats are one of God's greatest gifts to humankind. My cat is an angel. She always knows when to come cuddle with me, she keeps me warm and dries my tears. I wouldn't be half the person I am today without her by my side, or should I say, on my feet.

5. A dog.

Not everyone loves cats, but almost everyone shares a mutual love for dogs. They are like little (or big) rays of sunshine that view their owners as the purest and perfect humans. They can really do no wrong, in my opinion.

6. Respect from those who know me.

I have worked so hard to be the person I am today. And part of that is keeping up a respectful image. I want the people I respect to respect me in the same manner. I want to be someone who parents use as an example for their children, and who my peers look up to and follow.

7. Good grades.

Part of being a respectable and happy person is keeping up on grades and schooling. I would rather have all A's than a million dollars, because, with those A's, I could earn a million dollars myself.

8. I would rather make a difference.

I want to do something that makes a difference, and be known for that. To me, that is so much more crucial than anything else in this world.

9. I would rather be known as someone who cared for others.

I strive to be compassionate and be known as someone who is. In these times of division, I strive to be there for everyone and anyone who needs it.

10. I would rather change the world.

And I hope someday I can look back on this with a smile and know I did everything I could to do so.

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
