Holidays are meaningful and symbolic. On Thanksgiving we are grateful; on Christmas and Hanukkah we give to the ones we love; on New Year’s Day we consider new beginnings; on Easter, Passover, and Memorial Day we remember. This Independence Day, let us not only celebrate our nation’s independence; let us also liberate ourselves from the things that hold us back. What I mean is some people, not everyone of course, but some can let fear control their actions instead of letting opportunity guide them.
I would like to encourage you to think deeply about whether or not you let fear hold you back from accomplishing your dreams. If we let fear control our actions and our identity, that leaves little energy to attain the things we want out of life. But if we fill ourselves with love and confidence, we remain open to possibilities. With self-love and self-respect leading the way, we are able to see opportunity, know that we deserve it, and seize it with gratitude.
Like all ideas of empowerment that I suggest to you, releasing fear does not come with an off switch. It will take time, practice and dedication. I suggest writing down the things you fear and try to tackle them proactively one by one. If you are struggling with finding ways to stay positive, then I suggest reading this blog post.
I have 100% faith that if you set your mind to it, you can live the life you have always wanted. If you chose to liberate yourself from the things that are holding you back, it is just a matter of sticking to that choice and working through it. Making the choice is the first step. Keep believing in yourself, and you will find your way!
Happy Independence Day,
