INDEPENDENCE “ONE DAY A YEAR, OR 365 DAYS?”

INDEPENDENCE                       “ONE DAY A YEAR, OR 365 DAYS?”

INDEPENDENCE IS OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY, THE FOURTH OF JULY OR “INDEPENDENCE DAY”IS ABOUT FREEDOM OF CHOICE AND INDEPENDENCE FROM DIVISION.  INDEPENDENCE IS CRUCIAL, AND EASY TO LOSE WHEN YOU’RE A COUNTRY, WORLD, OR JUST YOU.  I KNOW FROM A PERSON’S STANDPOINT HOW EASY YOU CAN LOSE YOUR OWN INDEPENDENCE.  NO ONE CAN TAKE FROM US WHAT IS OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT;  BEING A FREE PERSON

WE HAVE TO “GIVE PERMISSION” FOR OUR POWER AS A COUNTRY OR AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE TAKEN AWAY WITHOUT FORCE.  WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE SAY IN THIS.  THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS SET UP FOR INDEPENDENCE AND SO ARE WE AS INDIVIDUALS.  SOMETIMES TAKING THE EASY WAY OUT, ALLOWING OTHERS TO BE IN CONTROL OF OUR COUNTRY OR OUR DESTINY AS AN INDIVIDUAL IS NOT THE BEST OR RIGHT WAY FOR US ALTHOUGH IT IS SOMETIMES THE EASIEST WAY.  TO HAVE THE POWER OF CHOICE, MEANS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR ITS OUTCOME.  IT MAY SEEM EASIER TO LET OTHERS MAKE OUR DECISIONS FOR US, BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT. 

BECAUSE I HAVE SLOWLY WATCHED MY OWN INDEPENDENCE SLIP AWAY IN MANY CODEPENDENT RELATIONSHIPS, IS NOT THEIR ISSUE, IT IS MINE.  IT IS EASIER TO COUNT ON YOUR PARTNER TO MAKE DECISIONS ON THE DIFFICULTIES WE ALL ENCOUNTER IN LIFE.  TODAY REMINDS ME THAT IT IS SIMPLY NOT HEALTHY TO RELY ON OTHERS TO MAKE ALL MAJOR LIFE DECISIONS IF YOU ARE AN ADULT. 

BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, I WANT TO LOOK AT THE DEFINTION OF INDEPENDENCE IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND ALSO THE DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION. 

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF INDEPENDENCE-THE FACT OR STATE OF BEING INDEPENDENT.   2.  FREE FROM OUTSIDE CONTROL, NOT DEPENDING ON ANOTHER’S AUTHORITY.  (OF A COUNTRY) SELF-GOVERNING. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-DEFINING WHO YOU ARE WITHOUT THE INFLUENCE OF ANYONE BUT YOURSELF.  2.  ACCEPTING THE RESPONSIBILITY AND REPERCUSSIONS OF MAKING DECISIONS AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF ITS RESULT. 

INDEPENDENCE DAY STARTED ON JULY 4TH, 1774 WHEN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WAS SIGNED AND EXECUTED.  “WE THE PEOPLE” IS HOW THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE STARTS IN ITS WORDING.  THERE IS NO “DIVISION”.  WE DON’T RECOGNIZE AT TIMES THIS FIRST SENTENCE.  THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE DOES NOT SAY, “WE, THE WHITE PEOPLE OR WE, THE BLACK PEOPLE”. 

“WE” MEANS IN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE ALL OF US IN THE “UNITED STATES”.  WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT IS DIVIDED AND IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT BEING “UNITED, YET INDEPENDENT”.  WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES WITH OUR OWN VOICES”.  LET US THINK OF INDEPENDENCE DAY TODAY AS MORE THAN JUST FIREWORKS, MORE THAN JUST A HOLIDAY.  LET US ALL REMEMBER WE STAND FOR SOMETHING GREATER;  BEING INDEPENDENT FROM ONE ANOTHER, YET UNITED IN AN IMPORTANT CIVIL LIBERTY;  FREEDOM.  WE ALL NEED TO UNITE BUT IN THAT SAME CONCEPT, RESPECT OTHERS FOR THEIR INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM OF CHOICE. 

TODAY, LET US REMEMBER THIS AND RESPECT ONE ANOTHER AS THE INDIVIDUAL THEY ARE WHETHER WE AGREE WITH THEM OR NOT.  THE GREATEST RELATIONSHIP A COUNTRY HOLDS, IS THE HONOR OF RESPECTING DIFFERENCES WHILE HAVING A “UNITED FRONT”.  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING TODAY AND HAVE A WONDERFUL FOURTH OF JULY AND INDEPENDENCE DAY. 

REMEMBER WE ARE ALL TOGETHER IN ONE WORLD, BUT INDEPENDENT FROM ONE ANOTHER IN OUR BELIEFS, DECISIONS AND CHOICES.  WE NEED TO HONOR THIS NOT ONLY FOR OUR COUNTRY, BUT FOR OURSELVES.  PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT, POEM OR OPINION BENEATH THIS POST WHERE YOU CAN BE THE ONE TO “JOIN THE DISCUSSION”, OR START ONE UP.  IT IS YOUR CHOICE AT THE END OF THE DAY.  IT IS, AFTERALL, OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT AS A PERSON.
