Today, everyone in America is celebrating Labor Day and enjoying a much needed day off from work. It really is refreshing to have a three day weekend and a little extra time to relax before the summer officially ends.
Right now , I’m sitting in my bed and reflecting on this day and looking forward to going paddle boarding with my friends. But to be honest, I really have the urge to work on my business, although I know I need the break.
I’ve been an independent contractor for years so I really haven’t benefited from the three day weekends that holidays like this brings. I’m actually use to working on them and have so on important days like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
For some reason the extra days off that the government gives us only makes me want to work harder to have complete control over my life, so I will have the freedom to create my own three day weekend whenever I want to.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to enjoy this day with friends but I’m also still going to set some time to the side today to start working on my business and future. Labor Day doesn’t make me want to take a day off, it only makes me want to work harder to labor over my own destiny.
Have a awesome Labor Day everyone!!!
