You Can't Grind Forever

I actually blogged about this topic on my old blog but I wanted to revisit this one last time.
People are quick to talk about how they are on "the grind." BUT what exactly is the grind? Is it just working hard? Or is it executing a plan? How would you define the grind?
Well let's just say...that it means working hard... So let's break that down... So you work day in and day out?... No rest?...saying things like you are "team no sleep?" ...

And that is cool? I think this thing that we call "grind" is too commercialized. Its like its the most popular thing to say right now. I for one, don't grind, BUT I do, do whatever is needed to take care of my family. And I think that is what "the grind" or whatever you want to call it, should be all about. I don't want to work forever. I don't want to spend years at a time, working on something that is superficial, that probably won't be there when I am long and gone. I just want to be the best person that I can be and pay it forward, by making this world a better place. (Wow that sounds so corny).

I say work hard, but love harder and remember that the people that care about you the most will not always be there after "your grind". So cherish the time you have with them while you can. People say that you have to sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice in order to get what you want and need. So that your future relatives won't have to. I understand that. But I also understand that you also have to have balance as well.
