Today is July 5th, 2023. We have just moved beyond the 4th of July…. a day, as a nation, we celebrate the 247th anniversary of our independence. What a great day to celebrate!


Why do we celebrate the 4th of July?

You may wonder, “Why do we celebrate the 4th of July? What does it mean?” Well, this day is incredibly significant in American history. It marks the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted (July 4, 1776) and the United States officially became its own nation. American citizens celebrate America’s birthday with festivals, parades, fireworks, barbecues and other festive activities”.


Think about this. Yesterday, as a country, we gathered within our communities to applaud and acknowledge the value of our accomplishments. We were no longer being held captive by an overbearing entity that was governing us with tyranny and taxes. Collectively, we had reached our limit. We fought back, we dedicated ourselves to a cause, we sacrificed and we won. There are so many lessons to learn from the events of those days. Yes, our country became free and independent ….we created our own laws and we set our own direction.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could incorporate and mirror those lessons to blend into our own personal lives….our own life-journeys? For many, self-doubt, self-despise and self-loathing have captured us....they have become: "the currency of our waking day". For many, we have become hostages to our own mind, our own thinking, our own self-talk, our own self-doubt and our own lack of actions. Wouldn’t it be great if we made a decision and fought back, sacrificed and dedicated ourselves to freeing ourselves from our own major captors….our own negative thoughts, negative self-talk and lack of action? For many, the lives we are living are pale-reflections of what we know we are capable of. We know, better than anyone else how and what we need to change. We truly are the: “Masters of Our Own Psychological Destiny”. When is the time to make these changes? Now is the time! There is no magic to transformation. If you want to change - my advice is: “then you need to act like you do!” It can simply begin with that one positive thought….followed by repeating that positive thought and then embedding actions and images….looking forward…leading you forward.

Try it! Don’t give up….our ancestors didn’t.

And then we can annually mark the day....with celebrations, appreciation and gratitude for "victories over self!". The day....we decided to implement change.

Days to Remember: Both Days of Actions, Celebrations, Gratitude and Appreciation:

July 4th 1776, Independence Day of Country!

July 5th 2023, Independence Day of Self-Doubt, Self-Despise and Self-Loathing.

It's time for Parades and Fireworks to mark the day(s) long-sought.... "Independence" has arrived....let the celebrations begin!
