Celebrating Independence

By Tiffany A. Dedeaux

A divorced man recently admitted to me that once he broke free from his relationship, he needed to redefine himself. He started by reclaiming what others told him he should deny: a love for purple. I found this fascinating because I too have made a return to the color I loved. He turned away because everyone told him it wasn’t manly, I turned away because everyone who so much as heard of the musician Prince professed love for purple.

About a year ago I met a woman who was transitioning to a time of living alone. She wanted to do something that would represent this time in her life, so she planned to light a lantern on the beach outside her home and release it into the sky at night. I suggested she do it on Independence Day and she loved that idea.

As the United States comes together to celebrate the birth of a nation, think about what you could do to celebrate who you uniquely are and…do that… Perform some ritual or act that represents reclaiming who you are and ushers in the magic of who you will become.

Happy Independence Day.
