Holidays almost seem to be made up for family gatherings; either with friends, siblings, co-workers or neighbors. It's not just an American tradition; it's worldwide. Each country has it's own holiday but bottom line, holidays are made to celebrate with each other.
In our journey through success, let's not forget what the holidays are for; holidays are there for us to be together. Take pictures to remember the celebrations, be present in your conversations and when kids are present, give them memories that will help them learn to spur on this tradition for generations to come.
The 4th of July is the official opening of summer, the celebration not only of our country's past time but a celebration of summer; of memories, photos, vacation, spending time with loved ones. When I try to decide what I want or don't want to do, I hold on to the very idea of what a holiday is all about. It's about just being together.
