Give Up something Good for something Better

Well once again it’s that time of the year. Christmas trees and caroling to lots and lots of Christmas shopping. Everyone is getting ready for the holiday season and this is the time of the year, where some families come together to spend time with one another. This year for me however might not be spent with my family because my work is open on Christmas day. Usually my family gets together every Christmas at my grandparents’ house. I might be working so I may not be able to spend Christmas with them. I thought I would feel horrible not being with them but then I remembered that I was working to save up for my own place. It helps to remember even though you might have to make some sacrifices, only goods are going to come.

My goal is to have enough money in the next few months to get my own apartment. Throughout this year there were a lot of times where I had to make a sacrifice because of work. I remember there was a time I didn’t get to go Vegas with Mike because I had to work. Even though I didn’t get to go to Vegas I made a lot of money that week from work. There will be times where we will have to sacrifice things in order to obtain what we really want or need. I know it would have been fun to have gone to Vegas but I needed the money more than I needed to have fun. Realize what you really want and make it hapen.

Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure, and loss only act as motivation.  -Evan Carmichael
