Your Emancipation Proclamation

President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, as the nation approached its third year of bloody civil war. The proclamation declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.”   The proclamation changed the whole flavor of the times and set in motion the inspiration that drove the final results of the Civil War.

Now, this blog is not about giving history lessons but I needed to set the stage for my point.  We’re early in a brand, new year.  A year in which you could declare your own emancipation proclamation.  You ask:  Emancipation from what?  I answer:  The mental slavery you have forced on your own mind.

Too many of us spend our lives in a form of slavery and never break the bonds so we can set ourselves free to become all we can be.  We labor under the chains of negativity and a “can’t do” attitude.  It’s self-imposed bondage that can be broken by the exercise of our own free will.

Dedicate yourself in this new year to your own emancipation proclamation that declares “I and all persons held as slaves to their own limited thinking are and henceforward shall be free.”
