In the July Thoughts to Inspire we are celebrating the wonderful country we live in. The freedom and independence that we enjoy. It is because of the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for us every single day. It’s natural for us to be reminded of their sacrifices this time of the year. This inspirational article will hopefully reinforce those thoughts and emotions, and make them last well beyond this independence month.
Let’s reflect on what we can do as Americans to make the most of our lives in support of those rights and to become better human beings to one another.
America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination, and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand. – Harry S. Truman
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits. – Thomas Jefferson
Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity. – Herbert Hoover
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – Declaration of Independence
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. -Denis Waitley
I hope you have found the July Thoughts to Inspire to be motivational. Come back each month to check out more inspirational quotes and review the archives for the previous months as well.
I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
