Spoiler alert – there is a video summary of this article at the bottom of the page.
With all that is going on with the politics, it is easy to think there is something wrong with America and our political system. However, I still believe this is the best place on earth to live. As a nation, as a people, we have it in writing that we are guaranteed life – the simple ability to live is protected and respected by the government in power. We have liberty. The ability to do as we please is guaranteed us. And finally, the right to pursue happiness – the right to do what we want in order to be happy in this life is guaranteed us. How awesome a thing is that?
There are so many people in so many places who only want to be able to pursue happiness and to dream a big dream. Unfortunately, because of their circumstances, many people are unable to pursue happiness. We are blessed to be guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The natural question is, what are you doing with your life? How are you pursuing happiness? Too often women entrepreneurs are so busy running their businesses and caring for their families that there is no time to do life-affirming activities.
Today is a thrilling day so it is a time to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Today is the time to enjoy life. Use the freedom we have for good things and follow or lead what needs to be followed or lead to pursue happiness. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are wonderful gifts. I am thrilled to have them and thrilled to be able to use them.
