Own Your Power – JoyFULLY – SASSY SUNDAY 25 of 52

Lady Liberty was a gift from France, an ally for the USA. She arrived in NYC harbor in 1885. The tablet she holds says July 4, 1776. Independence Day is my favorite holiday. I love that the Declaration of Independence began with a seed of an idea. All of us are capable of receiving ideas. I love that we brought this one to life.

My prayer:May we all be free from ignorance and the mayhem it causes. May we all be liberated to soar as high as Feel to, as great as we can dream.

I see the Statue and the Declaration as holding up our ideals. These are useful not only for us as a society but also for our inner worlds and personal relationships.

Here’s my personal message to compulsive overgivers and codependents – or any Wholehearted adult who reduces or shrinks or denies or minimizes their own power:


To free yourself from tyranny of any kind – racism, religious oppression or emotional abuse, you’ve got to own your power. Your True Power. Not a puffing up of your false self. But a true expression of your authentic self. Your heart.

We are social creatures and we learn better when we do it together. Create a group of your own or join us at Wholehearted Networking! To see if you’d be a good fit, visit us here: https://joybasedliving.com/wholehearted-networking/

Here’s my friend Kimberly’s take on her experience. I’d like to share it with you – not to sell you on the class but to inspire you to what’s possible for YOU!!!

Big love! In JOY!
