I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the men and women who served, fought, and died to not only make possible this wonderful country we live in, but also to sustain and protect our freedoms.  It is easy to take for granted the opportunities and freedoms we have in America to make our lives exactly what we want them to be.

To that end, saying daily affirmations and statements of gratitude out loud is one of the most powerful ways to find happiness and reach goals in your life.   Though it may feel silly at first, as you become accustomed to it, the action feels less silly and more impactful.   It is important to take time each day to show gratitude for everything we are provided in our lives.

It’s easy to think of things like being grateful for your spouse, children, and a recent job. With that being said, “What things are we taking for granted?”  Write down the things you are grateful for and each day add another.  You’ll begin to see things in your life that you never realized were there before. 

Take time this Independence Day to appreciate everything you have and thank the ones that sacrificed to give you the opportunities you have been given in your life.  Stay safe and have fun!
