You Guys, Happy 4th Of July! One of the most fun Summer holidays. As I’ve mentioned before I love this holiday. In general people are just happy. The 4th of July just exudes a vibe of joy, togetherness and most importantly freedom. Freedom is an interesting word. I mean what does it actually mean? Is it freedom to make your own choices, freedom to express your personality so you can just Be Free to be Me? It’s all of those things. It’s the ability to walk out your door and be safe to walk around your neighborhood, travel where ever your little heart desires and make and create the life you want. That’s what the 4th of July is about.
Remember when you were a kid and you would wait all day for it to start to get dark. Then you ran outside lit up those sparklers and danced around? I can just picture right now, it’s like a slow motion movie. The biggest smile on your face, there’s laughter in the air and you have a completely clear mind focusing just on having fun. It’s exciting, isn’t it?
Around this time of year I take moments here and there and just put that image in my head. It’s like a form of meditation to clear my head and recharge. It’s gives me butterflies in my stomach, fills my heart with pure joy. I always try and remind myself of these things. Sometimes I get so caught up on the little things that are sucking around me. Are you like that? Do you think about what you don’t have, what opportunities you missed or any other negative things you can think of?
Instead, let’s remind ourselves to appreciate the little things. These are what actually make our lives. They build and shape us to be who we are today and for the rest of our lives.
So today, enjoy your day with your friends, family, co-workers or whoever you’re spending the day with. Whether you’re at a BBQ, work, traveling, on the water or doing whatever your holiday tradition is, enjoy it. Take it all in and remember how lucky we are to have all of the big and small freedoms we have.
Wishing you the happiest of celebrations today and everyday!
