Have you ever noticed how life seems to be full of things that have to happen before other things can happen? You can’t eat your supper until you cook it. You can’t wake up in the morning until you’ve gone to sleep the night before. You can’t expect to have any money in your wallet unless you’ve gone to work. Compromises and sacrifices are required of us all. We have to get used to them as philosophically as we can. Life for you, of late, has been one long series of things you hope have led to good results. But have all of those investments been as profitable as you would have liked? In 2015, things work out much better in many respects than you dared expect. But you shouldn’t expect all your fulfilled wishes to come tumbling into place one by one at the behest of a generous genie. The process is likely to be a little slower than that. But then sometimes, it isn’t until we have suffered that we understand the true benefit of a relatively easy existence. It may not be until the end of 2015 that you begin to see how, even in the area where you have had to put up with the most discomfort, there has been a positive point and a purpose after all. Even so, this year will go down in your personal history as the year in which your efforts pay off and your sacrifices bring real rewards.
