Everyone is trying to become free. Free to express who you are.
Free to be you.
Free from your past.
Free from your monkey mind.
Free from living from others' expectations and rules.
If you felt free today, how would your day go? Your life?
Think of the many ways you are living small.
Afraid to be flamboyant.
Afraid to be joyous and alive, bouncing around like the kid you were.
Afraid that others might say you are arrogant too much.
What if you are totally free and just loving life?
Release limiting beliefs. Be who you are. Because that is what the journey of life is.
Use your wisdom that you now have to think about how you were when you were in your 30s, 40s, or 50s so you can free yourself. How would that be? How can you not let those beliefs, thoughts, or voices hold you back today?
Clean them out. Give yourself a break. Let your past be teachings for today's freedom. I could have showered myself with more gratitude and pure joy for doing what I loved. Instead, back then, I was critical that I wasn't doing everything perfectly and I wasn't pleasing everyone. I can just feel the freedom I would have had instead of the pressure and stress I felt. Instead, I was doing what I love by being a parent and being in education.
One of the fun things about being older is that sometimes you don't care what others think.
Freeing yourself from knowing life means discovering who and what you really are.
Reflect upon the stage of life you are in right now. How can you be free?
Who are you today? Who do you want to be?
Have the courage and vulnerability to love yourself enough to express your true being.
Amazing things will happen.
As Brene Brown says, "Authenticity is a collection of choices we must make daily. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice, to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen."
What new steps will you be taking to live in freedom?
Will you say "no" when you want to instead of your "yes" out of obligation or other's expectations?
Will you take a nap just because?
Will you dance with joy because it feels fabulous?
What does living in freedom mean to you? Take steps to create that freedom so life can be lighter and easy.
You are worth it.
Being free is what this journey called life is all about.
Only you can create the freedom you desire.
