Let life be an adventure. One that serves you.
Accept that life is like a rollercoaster - the ups and downs, the screams, the fears, and the laughter. It’s all calling you forward to your greatest and highest.
It is the unrealistic expectation that life should be easy or life should be just like you want it that keeps you stuck.
Love what is and life becomes easier. You don’t have to stay there but the pain and suffering are created when you are thinking it should be different.
What are you resisting instead of freeing yourself?
I know for me I was trying to make life perfect. So unrealistic.
I wanted to feel in control. I wanted more certainty rather than trusting myself to handle whatever came my way.
I saw how fear limits you and your vision.
“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires,” states Nelson Mandela.
You were born with wings. Where are you soaring because you have released all that is binding you?
Think of life as if you are riding a motorcycle. How you can’t think of anything else but where you are. Feeling the wind that’s blowing and all that is happening in real-time around you.
As we are approaching Independence Day, it’s a great reminder to think about the freedoms you have such as:
Free to pray
Free to decide
As Stephen Covey says, “Every human has four endowments - self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
What are the freedoms you value?
Freedom lies in being open. Being open to the possibilities that life is giving you just what you need at each given moment.
You have the power to choose. Is it freedom or safety? Is it trusting or controlling? Is it knowing you can create the road to somewhere or is letting go of old ways that are bogging you down?
What’s freedom to you right now where you are in your life?
As Temple Hayes said, “My mind is my church and what I believe is my religion. Our mind creates that which we focus on, becoming our truth and our church. What we believe is our religion because our beliefs create the world around us.”
Use this 4th of July to free yourself.
Feel the freedom.
Free from not caring what others think.
Free from thinking you’re not good enough.
Free to be you.
Happiness is being free to choose “your so much road to somewhere” choices. Somewhere that’s right for YOU.
You decide your freedom.
