If I had a million dollars…

Sometimes the best way to figure out what you are meant to do in this world is to ask yourself what you would do if you had a million dollars. If money was no option, how would you live your life? When I asked myself this question I came up with the following answers: I would start my own music school where the community could take lessons, put on productions, and house a small chamber opera company. If I had a million dollars, I would travel the world, working with the best teachers, coaches, and conductors to refine my voice. I would give myself at least a year free of work to practice my craft, audition, and perform without worrying about being able to pay rent or buy groceries. Lastly, if I had a million dollars, I would complete my 500 hour yoga certification and open a yoga studio in conjunction with the music school to teach yoga for performing artists.

Upon retrospect, even without the million dollars, I am working towards each of these goals on a daily basis. While it may take many more years of working and raising funds, I am doing what I love, making progress, and attempting to leave a positive mark on the world and the lives around me. It’s exhausting, it’s overwhelming at times, but when I can look at my life right now and realize that things wouldn’t be all that different, even if there were a million dollars in my bank account, then I must be doing something right. So, now the question you’ve all been waiting for: what would you do with a million dollars?
