By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Then along came the push for women to do men’s work and men to do woman’s work. It was called Women’s Liberation and the goal of my support of that movement was for all to a choice about work and to level the playing field between men and women. So far women now work out of the home as well as in, and are in some ways more burdened then ever. Men are also more burdened. There are also more men involved in child care; and more women choosing to work outside the home and better wives and mothers for being able to do so.
My protest is that the corporate push for profits above people has all working harder. It is time to push for all to have more time with family and more time alone.
USE YOUR WEEKEND WISELY Soon I will be signing off all work for the weekend. That is one way I stay strong. I use the time to take care of me and mine. Do something inspiring, make time for laughter and play, some time for you alone.
PRACTICE KINDNESS: Share this if you think another needs to be remind to take time to laugh and play. Practicing kindness is a circle drawing all sorts of people into a better place.
Stay strong, I work at it every day, every hour and sometimes every minute.
