Free to Be.. You
Updated: Jul 21
Freedom for me is to be able to be exactly who I am and do exactly what I want, when I want and however I want.
In my search for this freedom I’ve apparently had to search everywhere before I finally realized that I already had it. In order to get it I had to allow myself the freedom. I had to flip the switch and realize that at any given moment I am free to be who I am. I am free to do what I want knowing that everything has a consequence.
At any given point we are all free to be exactly who we are right now and free to do what we want with all the ripple effects and consequences it may entail.
We are free to do dishes and free to take another plate out of the cupboard.
When crying, we are free to let loose and free to regain control.
We are free to let fears get in our way of progress and free to overcome them.
We are free to say yes and free to say no.
We are free to hurt another person and free to act from our hearts.
When making mistakes, we are free to correct it and free to hope it wasn’t so bad.
We are free to pursue happiness and free not to.
We are free to give money to a homeless person and free to give a smile or look away.
We are free to blame someone else for feeling bad and free to blame ourselves or forgive the person.
We are free to find a new job and free to stay in the same.
We are free to help those in the world who don’t have the privilege to be able to choose freedom and free to mind our own business.
We are free to speak up and free to keep quiet.
We are free to find solutions to a problem and free to leave it unresolved.
We are free to get annoyed by others and free to leave the room.
We are free to remain the same and free to strive towards becoming a better person.
On this journey of life many of us do have a choice and can choose to grow and progress in our own pace for the sake of ourselves, our community and the planet as a whole. A free mind will eventually find solutions that can carry the peace, joy and visions and dreams you are moving towards.
I sincerely wish for each and every person to become the best version of themselves. The version we are all born to be.
In the end though, you will always be free.. To be you.
I wish you all happy freedom!
