We are celebrating Labor Day this weekend. A National Holiday since 1894, Labor Day is dedicated to acknowledging the workers of America.
I found a quote by John D. Rockefeller that I like, and want to share it with you: “I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand. That the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.”
There is another labor that deserves to be celebrated: the labor of personal growth. The very demanding work of becoming an authentic self; of finding our true identity; and reaping the rewards of such labor. To undertake this journey is to engage yourself in serious work, important work, demanding work.
“Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.” ~Augustine
Today, as you honor, acknowledge and celebrate the American worker, take a few moments to honor, acknowledge and celebrate the labor of your personal growth.
