I love April...obviously, we chose to get married in April. Some of our very favorite people's birthdays are in April. Flowers are blooming, the weather is getting better and the trees are getting leaves again. It's a wonderful time of year.
But I now officially hate April 15th. Hate it.
We have learned what it's like to work hard, earn money and be married. Something about it just doesn't smell right. Why on earth do Kevin and I bust tail every day, make money and have to give SO MUCH back to the government? Oh, to support other people, not our own family. For people that are too lazy to get off their rear end and work.
Now, most of us have jobs, are still in college or there are other circumstances that don't allow them to work. Fine. I get that. That's different and not what I'm talking about.
I'm a HUGE believer that everyone in this world has an opportunity and a chance. Whether your parents gave it to you or not, you have a head on your shoulders and if you want to do well for yourself, you can. You can work so you can pay for college, or you can just work your lil tail off out of high school. Whatever it may be, you have to have the drive and willingness inside of you to do it. Everyone is given that ability, it's up to you to use it.
I'm from a family who's father owns a small business, brother owns a small business, father in law used to own a small business before he retired and my husband owns a small business. They all had the will and the desire to work hard. If you ask any small business owner, they will tell you what it's like to pay quarterly, estimated and annual taxes and how out of control it is that we have to give so much back to the man!
I'm just SOOO frustrated that we have to write a humongous check to the government of OUR hard earned money so other people who are too lazy to DO SOMETHING can survive.
I never rant like this on my blog, I'm sorry. Just on my mind girls! Preach on!
