My gratitude today is a little left-field. Yesterday I mentioned I’d been to see the tax accountant. He always does a great job of making tax easier to understand, and more importantly, making sure I pay no more than my fair share.
Today I’m grateful for the taxes I pay. When you’re a small business owner, paying tax is a sign of a profitable business, which of course I am very thankful for, but there’s a much bigger reason I am grateful for paying tax.
I’m grateful for the roads I drive on, the school my granddaughter goes to, the clean beaches I can walk along, the public transport that takes me where I want to go, the safety of the streets I walk along, the security of knowing I can call 000 in case of emergency and will receive help, the health system that supports me and my family, and so much more. So yes, I am grateful for taxes.
Please do share your gratitude as well. Share it here on the blog, on the Facebook page, with your friends and family, or privately in your own gratitude journal. What are you grateful for?
