Today is Independence Day in America – a day for fireworks, barbecue, chugging beer and remembering all the rights that we are lucky to possess. Life. Liberty. And the pursuit of Happiness.
Well, today I want to focus on a few pursuits that I hope will one day be included in our ‘inalienable rights.’
We have the right to pursue happiness…
In the arms of the person we love, no matter our/their race, religion, sex, gender and sexual orientation.
Through self love, no matter our size or shape.
By remaining young at heart. Forget about being too old for something. Just live your life.
In the arms of our favorite sweet treat without feeling guilty. So bring on the chocolate!
In bed without being shamed for it. What goes on between our sheets (and out of them) is nobody’s business but our own.
With or without children in our lives. It is our choice.
While rocking that sexy little outfit or flannel pajamas. Our bodies. Our rules.
By following our dreams, whether that be blazing to the top of the corporate ladder, jet setting around the world or popping out 6 kids for your own Brady Bunch family.
Without judgment. Our lives are ours to live how we see fit. Our decisions may not coincide with other people’s beliefs or choices, but they do not have to live our lives. At the end of the day, we are the only ones who have to like our decisions.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY, AMERICA!
