Independence from . . .

On this 4th of July in the U.S., I wish the following for you.
Independence from staid ideas.
Independence from trying to be like everyone else.
Independence from a cluttered space and a cluttered mind.
Independence from self-doubt.
Independence from financial worry.
Independence from small thinking.
Independence from avoiding the hard work.
And just for good measure . . .
Independence from bad  haircuts, mean people, and imperfect margaritas.
Happy Independence Day!

  1. Hi Alyson,
    A wonderful set of wishes. Although I’m not American, I accept the
    gift. I wish you all the same with the extra wishes for your happiness, prosperity and tremendous success – all of which you already have. Long may that continue.

  2. Thank you for your holiday wishes! I feel your encouragement for us to be daring, confident, and true to ourselves. Happy 4th of July to you, too! I would add “independence from self-criticism” and “independence from prejudices”… and “independence from stale cookies.”

  3. Alyson, Thank you for this post! What a great list of wishes! My favorites: Independence from trying to be like everyone else. Independence from small thinking. Independence from mean people. I think I could handle a bad Margarita but I REALLY can’t deal with mean people. Happy 4th to you! 🙂
