Happy Today!

What a wonderful day to be alive and able to experience life, if you so choose.  Today we celebrate Labor Day in the US which is a celebration of the value of hard work.  Work is something everyone has to do at some point in their lives. Depending on your circumstances, work can be rewarding or it can be functional.  

I like to think of work as a means of financing your goals and dreams.  

This mindset trick is a way of keeping me focused.  Whether your goal is paying rent or mortgage, your work should be able to help you with this.  Life is an experience not an existence.  Work helps us pay for those experiences.  

Today, work comes in many different formats and it can seem as if what you are doing doesn’t matter in the long term.  It does.  The work you do is one step in your journey.  It is one thing that makes life worthwhile. Below are a few words which embody facets of life.  Select one and make it your mantra as you prepare for work each day.
