“Work work work work work work…” We all know those people that willingly admit that Rihanna’s hit “Work” is … “like totally their theme song”.
Either way, lyrically, "Work" is "about working for a paycheck no matter what else is going on in your life. Additionally, it focuses on "a fragile relationship" which seems to be a common factor when our work life and our personal life are out of balance.
Whether hip hop is your scene or not, I think most of us can relate to the fact of work being unenjoyable.
Even if you are lucky enough to own your own business, be self-employed, or have your dream job, work can still consume you. It can consume the majority of your time and thoughts.
I am a massage therapist and Yoga teacher.
Many of my friends and clients assume that because of my line of work and my interests that I don’t really suffer from stress.
That couldn’t be more wrong.
I struggle with sitting still, patience, saying no, and balance. When I say “balance” I mean all things balance. Sleep/work, Food/sweets, Money/time. I really have to work on these things consistently and patiently. Patience, also a struggle. Realizing I am a busy body has led me on my journey to a balanced body.
