Independence Day Happiness!

Freedom, and living your life as you choose, is an empowering feat.  Regardless of your race, class, gender, sexual orientation, political stance, etc., it is truly a time for growth in America.  The challenges and successes currently occurring in our country will always be subject to one’s personal perspective, but we definitely have the choice to engage in discussions about topics and issues that matter to us.  Even if we agree to disagree.  More people than ever before have a choice in exercising their rights to choose how they’d like to conduct their lives. Taking the reins in a direction that feels right for you can be emblematic of strength and independence.  You have choices, and that’s something to celebrate!

Here are four tips to keep in mind as the Fourth approaches, to encourage and maintain your personal independence:

Desire and Intention – What do you hope for, and what do you want to accomplish?

Motivation and Work Ethic – Are you excited and determined to keep going on this journey, even if certain roadblocks crop up?  Are you willing and able to work through these roadblocks if they occur?

Resources – Are you assessing your emotional, social, and financial backings?  Do you want to create room for growth in these areas?  How so?

Expression – Are you using your voice?  Exercising your rights?  Standing up for what you believe in?  Discussing and defending your views?

Being aware of what you have, and what you want to continue working towards, can be a rewarding exercise in and of itself.  You can create an independent life.  Have a safe and happy 4th of July, everyone!
