Today is my tax day. As I pulled together files and receipts and forms, it gave me an opportunity to reflect on 2016. All of these papers were evidence of the life I lived. It gave tax preparation a whole new meaning and perspective for me.
Taxes are a reminder..
That I am paid for doing what I love.
That I bought some really awesome books last year.
That I traveled to new places to learn new things.
That some people actually bought my book.
That my home really is my castle.
That I have two dependents that mean the world to me.
That marriage to this amazing guy is always an advantage.
That I am contributing to the welfare of others.
That I am a citizen of an already great nation.
That I existed.

I think I will be looking at taxes differently from now on! 🙂
Hooray for you that you were able to spin a positive slice on taxes! It is a review of the year past. Hadn’t thought of it that way. Thanks.
Taxes allow us to have police and fire protection, smooth roads to travel, a library, and so many other resources. I love the way your tax receipts took you on a journey through this past year.
What a creative way to look at taxes! It reminds us of how important our lives are to everyone.
I love your positive outlook on your taxes. I’ll remember this tomorrow as I’m pulling our paperwork together! Thank you!
Thanks for sharing such a positive attitude and another way of looking at taxes.
