The one thing that hurts more than having to pay income tax is not having to pay income tax – Thomas Duwar

It’s not about finding a silver lining everywhere (though that would be nice!), but it is true that many of our problems co-exist with things that we want and value — the salary that comes with taxes, the promotion that comes with stress.  So the next time you think something is a problem (it’s Monday again and I have to go to work!), how can you reframe it to be grateful or excited instead (I have a job that supports me and my dreams!)
