Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 5 in 2011) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.

The first big Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union of New York. It was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882.

I hope you're having a blessed time with your friends/family this Labor Day weekend. I had a wonderful time with my wife and kids and we enjoyed the beach, good food, and lots of ice cream! Now, we're back getting ready for a busy fall. We'll be closing our swimming pool and saying good bye to those hot summer days!

Every Labor Day, I'm reminded that I need to re-evaluate how I am balancing work and my personal life. How is your work/life balance? Is your career consuming you? Do you feel trapped or enslaved by work? I hope you'll find a way to escape into a career that is both satisfying and freeing.
