Free To Be You And Me

A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself. Jim Morrison, American singer, songwriter

If you live in the United States of American, happy 4th of July! As Americans celebrate our country’s independence,  I’m suggesting we also celebrate our freedom to be ourselves. Exuberant or quiet, liberal or conservative, old or young, athlete or artist, outdoor enthusiast or gamer….let us celebrate our unique selves.

Having a friend that encourages you to be you is what friendship is all about. Friends who accept us, “worts and all,” give us the freedom to make mistakes, say something just a little over the top, be really sad.

Affirmation: I celebrate my freedom to be me. I celebrate your freedom to be you.

Coaching questions: What about you will you celebrate today? How do you help your friends be themselves?
