This week in our Friday News Minute, we look at claiming our own personal independence in an article from! As we celebrate Independence Day in the United States, this is a good reminder to to celebrate ourselves too!

Things You’ll Need:

Pick a day that belongs to you and you alone--no meeting family needs or job requirements and proclaim to all that this is "MY INDEPENDENCE DAY".
Go to any place that brings you serenity and allows you to focus and identify how you got SO lost-and how you can find yourself, by identifying those activities and behaviors that makes you feel content, fulfilled and at peace.
It may have been a long time since you have focused on yourself, so bring a pen and tablet, to list your own needs. Until your own needs are met, it's pretty hard to satisfy others, without harboring resentment.
Announce to family and co-workers that you are making changes in the way you participate in life--AND follow thru.
Your new found activities may include joining a gym, or a garden club, taking a class, learning to play an instrument or even learning about the artist in yourself, thru a craft.
Keep the new you in the front of your mind, because it is much easier to slip back into the old routine of being everything for everybody.


Andrew's "The Power of Asking for What You Want -- Jimmy's Secret" Book is now available!

How can a little five-year-old boy change your life? In the book The Power of Asking for What You Want – Jimmy’s Secret not only does Jimmy show you time and time again how a child asks for what he wants, but he also asks for his sister and his mom when they’re afraid to ask for what they want for themselves. The story is set in an undisclosed small town in the Northeastern United States and centers around Jimmy’s family which includes his ten-year-old sister Cynthia (don’t call me Cindy) and his mom, Lynda Chamberlin.
