Sometimes I wish I wasn't so ambicious
Why couldn't I have been satisfied
with the first job I had?
Did it really help my pocket book
when I acquired all of these student loans?
Do I get where I need to go
any quicker in my seven year car note?
Wouldn't it have been so much easier
to live off government assistance?

...The answer to these questions is--no satisfaction.

I'm not built to just settle for what's handed to me.
I wouldn't be happy with mininum wages.
The more education I receive
the better the opportunities.
I can't help but to want more out of life
than a next to nothing piece of paper
Because I come from people that had nothing.

...No car, no education, no job, no satisfaction.

To need assistance is not a good thing, but a blessing to those in times of need, and yet a crutch to those whom are lazy with entitlements to society as they abuse the systems. I was elated when public welfare assistant programs placed a time limit on the monthly "check" whether it be poverty, unemployment or just laziness...Grabbing hold of life as you have is empowering & yes very satisfying as you reel in the sustenance of achieving goals...
Knowing Pride of Achievements Is A Grand feeling!
Kudos for getting out of the cycle of being shuffled around & standing up to stand for your aspirations & beliefs!!
Much Love & Continued Inspirations

You should be very proud of yourself Susie, for having the gumption to want to better yourself and strive to achieve the best you can be. You're on your way, avoid the pitfalls of doubt and questioning why, what...You have done it, the only place to go is up and your are equipt for greatness. Love and hugs, Bonnie
