Day 86: Why not INTERDEPENDENCE Day?

Perhaps we need to rethink  what independence means.  Here are some thoughts.  I borrow these words and ideas from Gregg Krech of the ToDo Institute in Vermont.  

"Independence often stimulates a sense of pride - a sense that I am competent, capable and can get along without others. 
Interdependence, on the other hand, stimulates a sense of humility, a reminder to be grateful, an acknowledgment that we cannot exist except through the efforts of others." 
A wonderful article on Interdependence can be found on the ToDo Institute website.  This is an excellent source of information on sensible thinking about life.
