What a lovely day today! The sun shines bright, the wind breeze gently, birds singing and I am faithful. It was a celebration of our Independence Day this past 4th of July. My family and I went to a beautiful picnic at the park and we had a fabulous time to watch the fireworks show together at the park here in San Jose, CA.
We feel blessed, we are thankful to experience , to recognize, to value our freedom, our liberty, to enjoy life, to create, to work, to maintain, to take care each other in time of needs, in time of celebration, in time of appreciation together. This time is a right time to do reflection and to give thanks to our ancestors whom given us freedom, to leave their legacy to us, to prosper, to continue and to live long and prosperous. There is no time to waste, we can’t afford to take things for granted, because all things happen for a reason.
What gives you a sense of independence in your life? When I think of independence I think of having freedom of choice, to think and to act without relying on others. It’s your right to move according to your own rhythms.
Having one’s own ability in life to take control, to take matters in your own hands. In terms of having financial freedom, as a Home Business Owner of course in this context, you will love to have your own funds for home repairs, going out to lunch or dinner with friends, traveling, visiting family across the country, purchasing a new car, even a new home or a second property, to take a cruise around the world, paying medical bills or for medications; paying for help with housework, meal preparation, yard work or transportation, whatever is desired can give that feeling of independence. Especially with the economic condition nowadays, having a good next, a good investment and being able to pay off a mortgage to improve cash flow to save one’s home from foreclosure gives one relief and freedoms.
Think about it, what gives you peace of mind, what motivates you to work smarter and to be able to provide a good life style for your self and for your family?
Having a sense of independence really helps you to grow and to go out from your comfort zone, to push your limit to the max. In terms of doing home business, perhaps change jobs, perhaps visit a new place that you never been before, or create a new relationship or a new belief and maintaining your belief in life , to be discipline and having a real commitment to your self and to others are really critical, really important.
