Happy Labor Day!
It’s Labor Day. Yeah, so it’s the last day off before most of us have to go back to work, at least we all got a nice long weekend to relax and enjoy the better life of stopping to smell the roses a little. It really got me thinking about what retirement will be like and when I don’t have all the stressors that a worker bee’s life has.
Not that I’m complaining. I’m glad to have my job, trust me, and very blessed to have everything that I do. But when I get zits all over my face from a super stressful day, it sometimes makes me wonder if it’s worth all the stress. Maybe I should become one of those beach bums! Nah, just kidding.
I think we all like to fantasize about what our lives would be like if we didn’t have any stress. However the reality is that there is no life like that.I know people who haven’t worked a real job, or any job at all, in years and are still some of the most depressed, unhappy or apprehensive people I know.
I think there really is something to the theory that some stress in life is actually productive and keeps us healthy and on our toes. As for the days when it’s absolutely out of control and I can literaly feel the acne sprouting up under the surface of my skin, those are the days when I question how much stress is too much!
Anyway, Happy Labor Day and good luck getting back into the swing of things at work tomorrow. And thanks for making America the great country it is by being a great worker!
