I've come to a point in my life where I don't require the contrast of opposition to appreciate the present. There was a time when working 2 weeks straight would have made me appreciate a day off so much more. But the reality is, I really appreciate a day off whether I've been working two weeks straight or not at all. Ten months of unemployment had me waking up every single morning thankful for that day off. Maybe that's a bad example. But it's true.
