You're more free than you think

It seems everyone is looking to be free. But do we really know what it is? Free with time. Free from judgements. Free from expectations. Free to speak. Free to act. Free to be whoever you want to be. Have you defined your own longing? 

What if you are more free than you think? What are the cages you've built around yourself? Are they really real? 

I think we sometimes feel caged when we're not. We use all the should's and have to's as excuses to hide from our own freedom. The change of perspective to need and want can give you the freedom you're seeking. You're responsible for your own life and your choices. This also gives you permission to let go of some of the things you feel are keeping you chained. That is if you want or need it, not because I say so. 

The lack of freedom we sense in our life is more something we keep affirming than any object reality. 

I've also been thinking a lot about whether total freedom is really something to strive for and something that really feels free, but more on that in another post. For now, reflect on what freedom means to you. And then, start affirming more of it in your own life. 

With all my love,
