ST. CROIX INSIGHTS
BY BRETT ANDERSON/ST.CROIX ADVISORS, LLC
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ~ The preamble to the Declaration of Independence
Life: creating the life/lifestyle we desire.
Liberty: living in a free society.
Pursuit of Happiness: finding meaning and purpose.
For me, financial freedom means that I can choose between needing to work and deciding to work. That’s a level of financial security that people generally experience later in life, after years of hard work and careful money management.
328,000,000 people live in this great country. We are a nation of people with three common goals—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—but we all have different thoughts and perspectives on what those three core goals mean for our own lives and how we can achieve them. That’s just one reason why America is so special.
We will all be celebrating July 4, 2020, with fewer fireworks, picnics, ball games, parades, BBQs, concerts, and big family reunions that normally bring us together on this special day. But one thing hasn’t changed: this is a time for each of us to pause and remember what’s truly important for our lives and our country.
Happy Fourth of July! Here’s to many more Independence Days ahead.
