We hope you are kicking back and enjoying this Labor Day. It is one that we have all worked for. Labor Day is about celebrating our interconnectedness. It is a day where the work we contribute to society is observed and we get a day off from our regular daily routines.
As we enjoy our backyard activities and a day off from the work we do, it is a good time to re-examine our working lives.
In our August 13th post, we wrote about the idea of the calling, and that athletes devote their lives to a specific sport because they are called to do so. Are you doing what you ought to be doing on a practical level, or are you doing what you really love? It may be impractical to quit a lucrative job, but you can still explore a passion in your spare time. Who knows. Down the road, the passion you choose just might turn into a full-time career.
Whatever your occupation, enjoy the respite today. A little down time is always a good thing, even if you are doing what you love.
