The 4th of July, a celebration of our great nation’s independence, is here once again! What that also means is that you’ll be bombarded with all the big sales on everything from outdoor grills and cars, to mattresses and televisions. Unfortunately, for many the 4th seems to have evolved into nothing more than a big retail holiday, but let’s not forget the true meaning of the day. At its core, the 4th of July is about freedom, independence, and the brave men and women who risked everything to get it. It’s a celebration that marks the birth of the greatest country on earth.
As Americans, we cherish our freedom and independence, and continue to fight for it in many different ways. We should always be grateful, and remember how many oppressed people around the world yearn for the simple freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis. We should also remember that the tenants of freedom and independence aren’t just for the country as a whole, but also for each of us to pursue individually.
As we near or enter retirement, freedom and independence come into sharper focus and take on stronger meanings. We start to worry about things like whether we’ll outlive our money, and if we’ll be able to take care of our loved ones and ourselves later on in life. Independence really becomes about securing and maintaining your financial freedom so you can live the rest of your life on your terms.
