Looked up the origin of #LaborDay today...”Labor Day has its origins in the labor union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest.” And then I made this face. . . I love the concept, but it feels like a dream I wake up from only to find I’m still working more like an average of 14 hour days. The hustle is real, but I often want to quit. . . How do you balance work and family life and dare I even ask, “me time”? (A concept I’m admittedly horrible at).
