Independence Day (United States) - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
My boyfriend’s 9 year old, may define it as the night where fireworks and BBQs happen and everyone dresses in Red, White and Blue.
A young professional may define it as a 3 day weekend where they get paid to have a day off and relax from the rigors of their stressful, but budding career.
Someone from the military or a veteran may define it on a whole other scale.
The point is, it is a day to reflect about independence and freedom. No matter the definition.
So what does freedom mean to me? Freedom was the whole premise behind Outdoormountainspirit.com. Empowering myself by going out on a limb and starting a business again. Breaking free from a job that had me shackled to a computer, living someone else’s dream. Freeing myself from what everyone else thinks, and what their definition of success is…allowing myself to dream and create a vision for my future, myself and a new company.
So while I have undoubtedly enjoyed the 4th of July BBQ, the annual 4th of July parade, and the sure to be amazing 4th of July fireworks, I am also breaking free of traditions and forging a path for Outdoormountainspirit.com…one to be proud of.
What are you doing this 4th of July?!
