the fourth

July 6, 2010


I just got back from a lovely weekend in San Diego. I drove down with Matthew and Ginger and spent a lot of time with my best friend Elizabeth and her dog Talula. We had a lot of fun although were a little disappointed that the sun didn’t show itself once! It was a very cloudy and somewhat gloomy 4th. So surprising for San Diego! Regardless we made it fun with dog walks, outdoor brunches, a trip to Balboa Park, singing patriotic songs, and watching lots of Food Network shows. How was your 4th?

My blogging friend Michelle has started a new project called Might & Main. Might and Main is aimed at inspiring people to live life on their own terms and giving them the tools to do so. She just posted her own personal Declaration of Independence and it’s too inspiring not to post…

From this day forth, I declare myself to be independent from the status quo. I will not be part of a thoughtless, wasteful lifestyle. Instead, I will embrace the opportunities and freedoms provided to me to live my own fulfilling life.

I will no longer chase others’ dreams; I will discover and start chasing my own.

I will stop caring about fitting in; instead I will stand out as an example.

I will pursue happiness as defined by me.

I will make thoughtful choices about my consumption habits.

I will be a responsible citizen, choosing actions that are best for me and my community.

Check out Might & Main for more motivational posts!
