As we quickly approach Independence Day, I wonder… are you Independent? As I think about this great country and what it means to be the land of the free and the home of the brave, I wonder how many of you don’t feel like you can free yourself of the shadows of your past or brave enough to rise above and be the strong, independent person you know you can be.
Here’s the deal – only you can know what haunts you, and only you can let it go and move on. Throughout our history, many people have fought and died to protect your rights of freedom… so don’t let that go to waste – don’t be a prisoner in your own life.
My best suggestion for moving on? Get out of your head and go help someone – in the spirit of what this coming holiday represents, volunteer for a homeless shelter or Veteran’s hospital. And say thank you to those who have served… and the families that support them.
Happy Independence Day… make it count!
