“Working 9 to 5 to stay alive…”
As I’m getting closer to becoming 24 years old, I’ve come to realize that with age comes more maturity. Even though this is something that I’ve gathered quite some time ago, it’s becoming more realistic as each day passes.
I’ve always been an independent person when it came to financial matters and taking care of myself in general. Despite still living with my family, there’s not a day that I reach out for a dollar from them for the simple fact that I have no problem working towards my own stability. With this in mind, I’ve been off from work for almost a whole week now, and although some may think, “Hey, you’re lucky! That’s a great thing,” it’s not such a great thing when you’re losing out on the little bit of money that helps you pay bills and maintain your life.
My time off from work, however, has been used productively. I’ve been filling out job applications, actually spending time with my close friends, and doing a little bit of self-reflection, which is always a healthy thing. The other day, I came across my horoscope and it almost made me drop the paper altogether.
The above horoscope spoke to me in high volumes. Granted, I do appreciate the advice that I receive from my family and friends, but when it comes to matters dealing with my life, I have to learn to listen to myself more and not try to please others. I may not become a billionaire right away, but I know that my time to achieve great things is drawing closer. There’s something about this year that I can feel a positive change will shift my way, but only if I’m in tune with myself. Beginning with this horoscope, I will continue to listen and see the signs given to me. All I have to do is be patient and not be distracted by what everyone else wants for me.
