Get A Hotel Room
Start writing a post

Get a hotel room. One with a king bed and a jacuzzi tub. Splurge for the late check out time. Sometimes all it takes to reset is a nap. Other times it's room 212 at the Grandstay. Run yourself a bath. Turn on your favorite music. Use the entire bottle of stress relief bubble bath. Close your eyes and think about nothing. Breathe. You're still thinking about work, school or the things bothering you. So turn the music up. Sink a little lower into the water. Be present in the nothingness of this moment. Breathe. Drain the tub, dry off and crawl into that beautiful king size bed. Cover yourself in that lavender lotion from head to toe. Nothing beats the smell of those lovely fresh white sheets or how your silky soft skin pairs so perfectly with them. The way your head seeps deep into those pillows makes you forget about everything outside of these walls. Breathe. Turn on the TV that's hanging on the wall. Something funny. Romance movies make you feel lonely. Action movies make you want to be doing more. Comedy makes you laugh, you need to laugh. Breathe. Fall asleep to your favorite song and dream the sweetest dreams. No nightmares tonight. Breathe. When you wake up run another bubble bath. With the sunshine peaking through the windows, enjoy this bath just as much as the one last night. Breathe. When you check out smile at the front desk employee.

Smile the entire day today. Smile because you feel refreshed. Smile because for the last twelve hours your mind was clear. Smile because you can and you have a gorgeous smile. There is no instruction manual for life. Sometimes you have prayed all the prayers you can pray. You have tried all those things that are supposed to make you feel better. Sometimes you need to get a hotel room. Reset. And just breathe.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
