Independence Day has become a day of celebrations with family & friends, all decorated with picnics and barbecues, fireworks and parades. This year Independence Day took on a new meaning for me. The start of this year was very challenging, it forced me to examine many aspects of my life. Did I have the courage to be who I want to be? Did I have the courage to live the life I want to live? I consider myself one tough cookie, so the answer to the question was yes.

My wish for you today, is to find the courage to listen to your own inner voice and trust your choices, ultimately this will lead you to a life of happiness. This blog is a reflection of my happiness and the courage it took to be free. Happy Independence Day!
