Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life
Labor Day is an American Federal Holiday recognized on the first Monday in September. This day "off" celebrates the social and economic contribution of workers. Our society has made it the touchpoint for summer's end and high society's marker for the last chance to fashionably wear white. It is also one of the busiest retail days of the year, right after Black Friday. Ironically, those who work in retail don't get Labor Day off. Go figure!
Work is officially over for Mr. Oppossum we (finally) caught Saturday night
Hopefully, you put your heels up and enjoyed time "off" from whatever your occupation. In a perfect world, we'd follow Confucius's advice and never "work" a day in our life. Dream on, Grasshopper! Most Americans are thankful to clock-into a job that pays these days ... Thank God for our employment!
Riding a unicycle is like life. To be successful and enjoy the ride, they both require tremendous balance and focus. I sit up tall, shoulders back and imagine I am holding one of my young boys under each arm. My best-friend-techie-husband’s hand on my seat (hubba, hubba) to guide me, and my two wiener dogs running alongside, looking like double Dumbos. As I train to ride Blanche, my unicycle, in a half-marathon, I think how good God is as the breeze blows my brown hair, a big smile on my face. Come along for a thrilling one-wheel ride while I do my best to maintain balance... but keep an open mind, there is always something new to learn!
