In honor of Independence Day I have decided to free myself.
Weeeeeee. Wahoooo. Yay. Hooooorrrrayyyyy.
Here are the bonds I’d like to break…maybe you share some of them. Maybe you’d like to make a list of your own.
Perhaps we can start a new tradition. How about July 4th Declarations–Mid year’s resolutions with a theme of personal freedom.
And so I present:
CHAINS I’D LIKE TO SHAKE:
(My First Annual Personal Declaration of Independence)
1)My enslaving obsessions and addictions.
2)The desire to control anyone or anything.
3)The need to win the approval of haters.
4)Being nice to those who are not nice.
6)The need to be liked.
7)Childhood behaviors, roles and rules.
8)Resentment and rage.
9)Tolerance of abuse.
10)Negative emotions and other unquiet states of mind.
SET YOURSELF FREE…DECLARE YOUR INDEPENDENCE…HAVE A GREAT JULY 4th!
