Week 37

Freedom… Yesterday was July 4th… Independence Day. Celebrations were had all around the country … parades, picnics, homemade ice cream, flags waving, bands playing and the culmination of every celebration was fireworks.

"Freedom is not enough" – Lyndon B. Johnson. Add that with what Albert Camus said – "Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.”

What do we want to be free from? Me? I want to be free from anger, judgment, sadness.  But just being free of those would never be enough… When I'm free of those, I need to embrace their opposites – love, gratitude, acceptance, joy.  That's the only way to truly live a life of abundance. To have an extraordinary life.

I celebrated our nation’s independence yesterday. Today, I celebrate freedom & the chance to be better & do better.
