Ah! the good life of summer. We all have some fond memory of summer. It might just be simple living or it might be a big excursion. Summer is a time of activity. The weather is warm and the days are long. Think back in your childhood, a younger time, and remember a time during Summer when you were happy doing some fun thing. Take that happiness and apply to today and remember "THE GOOD LIFE OF SUMMER!"
Above is an image of fireworks from a 4th of July celebration in Boston, Mass. This weekend we in the United States celebrate the 4th of July, our independence day. Almost every country has its own independence day celebration. Independence holds great importance in our lives. Countries celebrate it, kids coming of age celebrate it, and even animals will seek their independence. There is something in life that resists restrictions and the sense of being directed against our will. Independence does not have to be solitary, it could be a collective goal. Seek independence with wisdom and a sense of direction and enjoy the '4TH OF JULY"
Above is an image of a Great White Egret hunting for food in the water. The bird must tell itself "Wait a bit longer" if it is going to be successful. How patient are we when it comes to things in life? Are we the reckless impatient one or are we the patient person waiting for the right moment in life? So often our quick actions may lead to disappointment. Now the Egret must be ready for a quick strike when the moment arises, so this is not a call to non-action, but to right action when the time is right. Feeling disappointed, "WAIT A BIT LONGER!"
Above is an image of a Great Blue Heron, flying across the sky. It soars above all bringing beauty and awe. Birds flying somehow give us hope. It may be our want to fly, the speed of their flight, or our sense of going where ever we want. Hope is a "feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen." We all need a sense of hope in our lives even in the darkest of times. Life does not always go the way we may want it to, but hope allows us to always aspire to a better outcome. Like the Blue Heron, fly "ON THE WINGS OF HOPE!"

If you are alive, you have so much to be thankful for. Seize the day "Carpe Diem" for life! Soar high above all things. "GIVE PRAISE FOR A NEW DAY!"
