Paying Taxes is like Cleaning the Bathroom…

I don’t like paying taxes, but I do it because I know that I have to. I also don’t like cleaning the bathroom, but I do that, too.
At tax time, I always groan and sigh. I want to keep more for myself. Of course I do. Just a little bit more, and I’d only spend it on good things like organic vegetables and running shoes…but still. I’m human, after all.
But when we make all of our decisions based on self-interest, we miss opportunities to make our world a better (and shinier) place.
