I have worked hard ever since I was a youngster.
I’m sure I could have gotten into a better career, but I make reasonable money I suppose.
At least I’m good at what I do but I feel like I have been a complete workaholic. I don’t really make time to hang out with friends and family much except for around the holidays. I honestly haven’t taken a vacation in years and I finally was talking with some friends about it. They told me that I had to be entirely burnt out with all the work that I do. They asked me if I had a good amount of savings, and I told them I did. Of course, I wanted to build up my savings for retirement purposes and I wanted to be okay financially in case of an emergency. I wasn’t thinking about relaxing on some tropical island resort. The last emergency I had was actually really expensive. I had an issue with my heating system. Evidently, there was a crack in my heater exchanger and I was told that I had to upgrade my entire HVAC system. I was not happy about the expense, but I think about problems like that all of the time. I don’t want to end up losing all of my money just because of issues like that. I actually decided to enroll in an HVAC service plan after that happened so that I would never experience a costly issue like that again. My friends still told me I needed to take a vacation, and I just said that I would think about it.
