Today we celebrate Labor Day, which as a holiday seems to be used to represent different things. The original intend was to celebrate laborers, the backbone of society, but today it seems everyone just uses it to signify the last weekend of summer.

For me, it reminds me that life is a marathon not a sprint. Yes, work is required, and I believe you should strive to be the best you can at it, but it’s only one part of your life. Family, hobbies, interests are all more important and in this day and age when everyone want’s to be “the self made man” those get put on hold.

As the saying goes, no one on their death bed cares about their work. If you got really sick today could you look back over this year and see that your priorities were in the right spot? If not change it. If so, keep it up!
