Growing up we are all told to work-hard, excel in school, get a job, be responsible and we were reminded that successful people postpone gratification with the idea they will have some great success later. Presumably this postponed gratification makes up for years of drudgery. This kind of thinking tends to take the joy and inspiration out of life.
Happy 4th of July Weekend. July 4th is a great day to celebrate and have fun with friends and family, get in the water, cool off, or just take time to relax.
