state or quality of being independent; freedom from subjection, or from the influence of others; exemption from external control or support; not requiring or relying on something or somebody else (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

autarchic, autonomous, competent, empowered, free, freedom, independent, liberty, license, self-sufficient, sovereign

As I reflect upon our country’s upcoming birthday, I see how the ideal of freedom on which our great nation was built, shares much in common with the state of independence that comes with aging well.  Both are born out of passion, determination, optimism, character, balance and strength.  We prosper from a shared sense of connection and community, from using our heads, and listening to our hearts.  We thrive with grace and gratitude, and knowing we are not alone, all the while remembering independence is not just about free will for all, but good will to all.
