It's the 242nd anniversary of our great country--the against-all-odds vision of brave, circumspect statesmen who believed they could do better than the colonial status quo. And it's got me thinking: How important is independence to you?
For me, independence goes hand in hand with freedom, but they're not necessarily the same. Freedom gives you an almost limitless leash. Independence suggests you're the only one attached to it.
As a kid, I was chronically independent, always looking for ways to "do it myself." Now, as an adult, I'm still self-reliant and responsible, but I've realized that doing everything solo isn't a great recipe for success or happiness. That's part of why VENIVIDI is here--humans need community.
