Independence Day

In the movie "Stuart Saves His Family" with Al Franken as Stuart Smalley (I highly recommend it to anyone in recovery) there is a scene where Stuart and his friend are watching fireworks on July 4th. For every firework Stuart declares Independence from something that's been holding him back. I think this is a wonderful idea! What are you ready to Declare Independence from?


  1. Love this post! Great prompt! I would love to simplify ~ gain independence from consumerism and capitalism...not holding my breath :)

  2. Dawn,
    One thing I've learned about change and letting go is that it happens in increments; a little here a little there and it soon adds up and becomes a way of life!
