Freedom . . . Priceless!

Freedom text

(Photo credit: jcolman)

So few people really get a true understanding of what freedom feels like.  Most associate freedom with slavery or oppression from tyrants. But the truth is freedom is a state of mind as well as a state of being.

For example, employees can’t be honest about their wages, the boss or work conditions.   When they speak the truth, they are considered whistle blowers     . . . correct?

Maybe you are in a marriage or relationship where you don’t have the freedom to be YOU.  Or in a family where tradition or culture rules not the free will of the individual.  Perhaps you feel you are in a situation that you will never escape. That’s the freedom that I am talking about:

  • the freedom to do what’s right when no one is looking
  • the freedom to feel free, no strings attached
  • the freedom to try something new
  • the freedom to change what’s expected

Freedom is when you can choose and seek the truth for yourself. The ability to be comfortable in your own skin . . . and make no apologies for it. Freedom to reinvent yourself, no matter your age. Freedom to take risks, to continuously grow & learn, and to expand your mind to new capacities.

Be Free!
