Happy Independence Day! This weekend we celebrate the 4th of July, the day that the United States declared independence from England. We’ll have barbeque and fireworks. Bands will play and families will gather. A great American holiday. Hopefully, we’ll also take some time to reflect. If it were not for the women and men of our Armed Forces, we wouldn’t be celebrating Independence Day. If not for their sacrifices, and their willingness, when necessary, to give their lives for our freedoms, we would live in a very different county. If you are member for our Armed Forces, a veteran, or a family member, thank you for your sacrifice. We can never adequately repay that debt.
But, many can also to celebrate independence from more than just England. Maybe you’ve broken the grip of chemical dependency. Maybe you’ve left a toxic relationship, or a really bad job. Maybe you’ve finished your formal education (at least for now) or maybe your last child has moved out of the house, and you are an empty-nester. Independence is phenomenal. The ability to do what we want, when we want it is one of the greatest gifts you can be given. An effective job search can help you find the right job and that job might put you one step closer to independence.
But, with independence, comes responsibility, to assist those who have not yet achieved independence. Look around you and find those that need your help. I believe it is that willingness to help others that has made our country great and will continue to propel us into the future.
Enjoy Independence Day, for whatever you are now independent of. If you are struggling with your job search, this might help. https://im-fired.com/about-the-book/
