What Happens on Mexican Independence Day 2019?

Even though I have been away from Mexico, the country I was born, for over 30 years, I still have close connections with all my family and friends who are very much part of my daily life.

So I thought it would be a good time to share what happens in Mexico on Independence Day and why it is such a momentous occasion.

The month of September is referred to as “el Mes de la Patria” (month of the homeland).

Mexico commemorates a proclamation by Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla on September 16th 1810, in the village of Dolores, near Guanajuato.

On September 15 at 11 p.m., the eve of Independence Day, the President of Mexico rings a bell from the balcony of the Mexican National Palace. He yells to the crowd below and they respond by saying Viva. This goes on until after a third time, everyone yells “Viva Mexico.” The people then wave flags and ring noisemakers. The Mexican anthem is sung and fireworks are set off to light up the sky.

On September 16th, a military parade takes place in Mexico City.

Brass bands fill the streets and governors re-enact “El Grito,” or the famous cry for freedom in major government palaces.

It is a big celebration for Mexicans with plenty of parties, festive decorations, parades, music, fireworks and plenty of traditional food.

But, If you are looking for time freedom, it is imperative that you stop trading your time for money.

The mindset of trading time for money is how most people operate, but it limits our time to pursue the things we love to do.

For me, the idea of building a business that I truly love and enjoy time and financial freedom was something that caught my attention.

So I did some research and started my online business. It is the best thing I have ever done.

But, after the first excitement, I realised that the first step was to change my mindset.

Many of us believe that successful, assertive people never have any doubts – that they are confident about every choice they make, but even the most talented entrepreneurs experience self-doubt at some point

After the initial excitement, many of us start to have doubts, worries, and concerns about whether we could do what we need to do to get results, not only in our business but in our life.

In my case, I knew I had an excellent course, mentors and training available, but I wasn’t clear in terms of what actions steps to take.
