Celebrate Your Independence

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2. Source

Being descendants of multiple ethnic groups, today’s independence was historically beneficial to at least one group of our ancestors.  As a result, we’re celebrating the nation’s independence back then, and that of our own today.

Never a bad time to purge and celebrate the loss of situations or things that may not bring out the best in you or just don’t fit in your development to the next level in your life. Find the silver lining in all of it.

Just as our nation gained the right to develop and progress economically, socially, and politically via the independence celebrated this holiday, we were provided freedoms upon which we should use for abundant growth. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Let’s discuss some of the things within our own control that can enhance our own life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
