Once I bought a lotto ticket for Florida Lottery, when jackpot went up astronomically. I don’t really recall the exact amount of the jackpot. But that’s it I never played lotto again. But, like every one else I sometimes day dream about getting a windfall of money. Some weird thoughts do cross mind sometimes, like a suitcase full of money coming down from the air crafts above or finding a sack full of currency notes. But realistically, we may receive a financial windfall at some point of time.
Most of us learn to live with a steady amount of money. It usually comes in the form of a paycheck from employer. We are accustomed to it. We can manage our income, budget it, plan for the future, and do everything you’d expect with this sort of arrangement. So how do we handle an unexpected windfall?
