Celebrating Your Independence

Today is a day when we gather with friends and family to celebrate our country’s independence. But what does this holiday mean to you? Besides being excited about the firework display and going to a barbecue, what are you celebrating? What does it mean to be independent, not only as a country but as an individual? When you think about how many things you take for granted, you’d be amazed at how much freedom you actually have and the opportunities that are available to you. So when you go about your daily life, grumbling that you don’t have a choice to do what you want to do, know that you have choices, but may not be ready to make them. Like our country, your independence doesn’t come easily. It may be difficult to attain and harder yet to maintain, but with persistence and commitment on your part you can achieve all that you seek. So celebrate our country’s independence day as well as your freedom to be whoever you are meant to be.
