It’s almost March! Work is starting to pile up, kids have pretty much settled into their school routine and my finances are moving upward thanks to me diligently (and painfully) paying off my loans. As long as I keep my wants low, I will be fine. I am no longer salivating over handbags, shoes and things. The smell of new leather still make me go oohhs aahhs but then smell is free! ha ha ha I guess it comes with being older. even the opposite sex appeals less and less! now that’s a bold statement! well if I may be honest here. I spend much of my energy making sure my kids are loved, fed, clothed, educated, nurtured and all that jazz.
Love is about giving and whether you realize it or not, being in any relationship takes away some of you. You must be willing to live with somebody else’ bad habits, poor table manners, lesser-than-desired hygiene, impulsiveness, bad spending habits and other not-so-nice things. Yet you choose to compensate, close one eye or maybe do nothing out of love. It’s like having only a tank of oxygen to live on and having to spare some for someone else. He must be worth saving or else it would be a waste.
But life is short, so some people choose to spend their energy on saving themselves. I can relate to that.
