Before i get to posting, I have to apologize for my absents. I have NO IDEA where June went. Oops. If you are reading this...thanks for sticking with me. Now. onto the goods.
Happy Independence Day! I love this holiday for two important reasons... First, our country is an amazing place to live and I think we are enriched by different cultures and people who have so much to offer and contribute to us. Secondly, my sister married a British guy so it's nice to yell, "We're number 1," once a year!
I'm sure you all have your own reasons for liking this day, but no matter how you feel, take some time to reflect back over the past year and notice what you are free from. Are there things or circumstances that used to hold you down and make you feel like you had no hope or future? What have you broken away from that you will never be bound by again? It's easy to get bogged down in our daily lives and lose perspective regarding all we have accomplished. Don't get caught in this trap; let the 4th of July be a bright reminder of what you are capable of.
Right now my family is going in a hundred different directions... My daughter is involved with high school volleyball and my son is busy with his job. Did I mention we are in the middle of trying to buy our first home?! But I am taking each day as an a opportunity to keep a balanced mind, soul, and body. I appreciate that my 2b Mindset is a lifestyle and not some program. I can look back over the past year and see all the things I've relinquished and how free I now am.
Anyway, I just wanted to wish you a happy 4th and let you know you are not alone in whatever hill you might be climbing or whatever struggle you are facing. Independence Day doesn't have to be just about history... Make it your present.
*** Just some of my favorite 4th memories.
