It’s Labor Day weekend, which to most, means the unofficial end of summer and an extra day to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
I love the Friday before holiday weekends. Aside from hearing Rick Astley on 101.3’s ‘Flashback Friday,’ it’s the anticipation of that extra day that means so much. Some of us – especially those who work in social media or run a business – will not have a full-day off ‘work’ for the holiday. But, we’ll take what we can get, which is quiet time to focus on project-work, lingering tasks or business planning. I’ll be working on all three this weekend. And, just as I wrote 6 years ago, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s not that I live to work; it’s that I enjoy my work. And, I am grateful when I have the time to also enjoy life outside of work. That’s what holiday weekends allow me to do.
I am not planning anything especially awesome, but I will enjoy the simple things like catching up on reading, hitting the gym, and spending quality time with my husband.
It’s the extra day that I value. Thank you, labor gods, for making this possible.
Can anyone else relate?
