Today, I celebrate Freedom.
I celebrate and honor those who came before me and those whose lives happen during my own - those who I will never know - who bravely and selflessly lived and died for my freedom.
Every single day, every single moment of my life, I am free to choose how I live, what thoughts I think, how I let those choices influence the next moment.
I decided to remind myself today. (See below) When my mom saw me, she said, "Do you really need a reminder?". I thought for a moment and said gently, honestly, and with assurance - YES.
Yes. We all need to be reminded every single day that we are Free.
