  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: create #IndependenceDay for self

as the US reflects on July 4th independence day; i’m reflecting as well.  so much has happened in the country and so much has occurred with me.  i have mixed feeling about it all….  

dark dark moments of anger, fear and despair. but also lots of learning, truth and growth.  i realize that freedom works like that.  it is an earned struggle and the path can feel like a war to discover who you really are.  but you/me/we must get through the fight and march on. 

that’s why this independence day, i’m saluting the discovery of more of myself.  i’ll be watching the fireworks of my life unfolding brightly.  

what ways have you stayed true to who you are?

what have you done to stand more firmly for your desires?

what does it mean to fly your independence flag proudly?

join me today in celebrating our freedom.


some birthdays i’ve cried the whole day…felt like nothing was going right in my life. other times i just wanted to be alone; needed the quiet time to reflect on how much i’d overcome.   of course there were years of elation and glee too. but through it all; i’m still here.

even though it’s clear usa is going through growing pains, we will come out the other side better and stronger. this july 4th, regardless of how you feel things are going with the country; celebrate anyway.  faith in the celebration will allow us to pull through.



it’s independence day; usa’s birthday.

i’m giving today another purpose.  

july 4th for me is gonna be about celebrating freedom!!

     -feeling comfortable speaking my mind

     -making time to do without unwanted distractions

     -not worrying about how i look or sound

     -doing exactly what i want with my time

     -cooking up new things to explore

     -lots & lots of big chuckling laughter

got any other ideas for me?

what else can i do to celebrate freedom?

today many people are coming back from vacations in the sun and family picnics on the shore. having had grand celebrations and fireworks to honor our Nation’s Birth.   but does that independence apply to you?  well of course not sage! my mom’s got total control over my time and life…okay if you’re under age; there are rules that you have to obey.

but even tweens and teens need some independence in their lives.   sadly most adults don’t truly have it either.  webster’s dictionary says Independence means: 1- free from the influence or control of others; 2- self- reliant, 3- one who is independent in thinking and action.

before you run for the grill or first dips to make smores…take a moment to ponder how you can get more freedom in your life…
