Did you know that Labor Day started out as a way to recognize the poor working conditions of working Americans? It is absolutely necessary to rest and to celebrate ourselves for all of our hard work.
One of the main purposes behind "Protecting our Ish" is recognizing our hard work and understanding that, without it, there would be no legacy. There would be nothing to enjoy at retirement and, even more importantly, nothing to leave our families. What a shame it would be to allow our hard work to go unrecognized.
Take a day to show yourself some grace and enjoy some pride in what you have built. No, we may not be where we want to be but yes, we are getting there.
Happy Labor Day to all of my hardworking friends who are protecting their "Ish" just as much as I am.
