Celebrating Independence

As we celebrate the independence of our nation, I’m also reminded of those who are celebrating independence from addictions and destructive behavior patterns. Today, I celebrate and give thanks for their courage to leave abusive relationships, say No, that does not work for me, extend forgiveness and grace to ones who have caused them pain, decide just for today not to drink or get high, no longer procrastinate self-care via dietary changes and physical activity, risk saying “I love you” even when unsure how it will be received.

Just as men and women have and do battle for the freedoms our nation enjoys, making significant, meaningful changes in one’s own life is a battle. To those who take up this fight – I celebrate you today and every day.
