Separation

Sometimes, situations get to a place where it is best for you to separate from them for a little while or possibly longer. Separation creates distance that can improve both your perspective and your handing of something. Separation brings you to yourself, away from the influence of others. The hubbub of the world and our surroundings can be detrimental at times. The next time you face a challenge, are feeling confused or just need a break, try separating yourself from whatever is happening. Hopefully, you will find it refreshes and rejuvenates you.

Independence

dreamstime_xs_47208635Independence: freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or the like, of others.

Here in the United States, we are approaching our July 4th holiday – Independence Day. It is a fun day of celebration, good eating, fireworks and festivities.

What’s the state of your own independence? In your estimation, are you too independent or not independent enough? It is a balancing act, as we are interdependent on each other, but also want to be independent and on our own.

Independence matters in several ways. It allows your true expression of self, keeps you free from the control of others and allows you some “space” to be you. How independent do you want to be?
