Celebrate your Dependence Today

No one lives, succeeds or survives in a vacuum

Today is Independence Day in he United States. Independence is a cultural ideal in America. The lone hero, cowboy, cop, business magnate, etc. are part of our cultural psyche of “Go West” and succeed.

Are any of us truly independent? Who of us would have survived even a year without the care of others? Even prisoners is solitary confinement get their meals from others. When it comes to succeeding, who among us really accomplishes everything or anything on their own?

If you’re celebrating independence today, take some time to celebrate your dependence also. Reflect on everyone and everything that support and help you to move toward your dreams.

Here is a quote that makes my point on independence and dependence:

My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence. – Charlize Theron
