Although July 4th was last week, I am celebrating independence and freedom all month. (Heck, why not do our best to create a life of freedom!) Even without seeing the outdoor firework show, I continue to feel the bright light and glow into the night. This July 4th I launched my bottle rocket into space and returned with a reminder to reclaim my most important relationship, the one with myself. So, I chose to do something special. First, I went on a hilly nature walk and then to lunch. A successful date and I felt true love, for me. My wish for all of us, is we cultivate time and space to enjoy ourselves and appreciate who we are and what we contribute to our community. It is not selfish to take great care of you. Life is about celebrating ourselves and enjoying what heals and excites us. What is happiness to you? Riding a bike, being in water, reading a book, writing, chatting with a friend, make time for it. It can happen in just a few moments. Start with scheduling a 10 minute break in your day for you. Make the time, follow through and notice. Do you feel more connected? Are you lighter in your being and is there a smile on you face? Really, you are worth it!
