Work is Hard
There are many times in which works gets in the way of things. It can be fulfilling, it can be excruciating, it can be menacing, it can be anything you want it to be. However, we need to remember that a good life has many things. Worked is included in a good life.
The American culture places a special meaning on work. There are times when meeting new people part of the introductory conversation will lead to asking what one does for a living. It's who we identify ourselves as and how we construct our social circle and determine our economic standing with those with whom we interact. It's not a bad thing, but it can be detrimental to the health of ourselves and our family.
There are many things that I want to do in life. Work can be like an unbroken horse. I jump on and break the horse. But every now and then the horse throws me off.
