Happy July 4th everyone!
I don't know what your traditions may be, but I hope you have a wonderful and safe patriotic day. The American spirit hit me, so I've busted out my star spangled tank and Russian Red lipstick for the day. Of course, I'll have to change in a few hours into my waitressing uniform (sigh), but at least the red lips can stay!
Since it's Independence Day, I started thinking about how I've slowly changed in the past year into the independent woman I am today. Reflecting back, there have been moments, no matter how subtle or dramatic, that have changed me. I'm still plenty childish in ways, but there is a shift within that I can't quite put my finger on. All I know is that I'm different. I feel older, wiser, and more in charge of myself. It's a wonderful feeling!
Even though that's not necessarily what today is about, the word independence has always been an adjective I strive for. To be strong and self reliant is something many can fail at. However, if successful, you'll find yourself less worried with the opinions of others and more focused on yourself and your goals.
So on that note, have a Happy July 4th everyone!
