HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
For many, the holiday represents cookouts, parades, and fireworks. It is a reminder to glance into a past where brave countrymen and women stood against the forces of oppression. It provides the opportunity to look forward to a world of peace and equality. And yet in the end, the 4th of July is all about freedom. The ability to be, act, and live without fear or judgment. A chance to achieve goals and believe dreams can come true.
I am blessed in countless ways and being an American is certainly one of them. So is being a writer. For though it is not the most lucrative career (or in my case, not at all), writing has granted me the highest level of independence.
With writing, I am liberated from the constraints of an unsatisfactory job.
With writing, I am allowed to express what lies deep within my heart.
With writing, I am expected to explore beyond my comfort zone.
With writing, I am encouraged to better myself and improve my craft.
With writing, I am rewarded with new friendships and valued memories.
With writing, I am the happiest I have ever been in my professional life…
Perhaps another perk of writing is that I can play hooky from the busy-ness of life. Instead, I opt to celebrate this glorious summer day with people I love. I encourage you to do the same…
