Independent — a quality for which many strive. It is a treasure to be held in delicate balance with its cousin, interdependent. Avoiding the extreme edges we can see the value of this pairing, of this healthy tension…
To be autonomous yet intertwined
To not be controlled yet depend upon those you trust
To be self-reliant yet partner with others to do more
To not be tied to approval yet welcome input
To know where you stand yet willing to dialogue
Independent means free. And freedom isn’t reckless. It’s shared reverence. It’s the privilege to create, to transform, and to exercise our wings… together.
May you be inspired!
