Free to Be

posted by Alex Blackwell

“You are always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.” – Richard Bach

Today is Independence Day in the United States – the Fourth of July.

More than 200 years ago, the American colonist signed The Declaration of Independence signaling to Great Britain they wanted to be free – free to live, free to dream and free to be.

Today is a good day to remember you are free, too.

No matter what is weighing you down right now, if it’s debt, a bad job or an unhappy relationship, remember this: You are free to dream, free to hope, free to be and free to pursue whatever lives in your heart because freedom’s promise is simple: Nothing has power over you without your permission.

Today is a good day to celebrate your freedom.

Freedom from fear
Freedom from loneliness
Freedom from the addiction
Freedom from limitations
Freedom from anxiety
Freedom from criticism
Freedom from despair
Freedom from wearing the masks
Freedom from shame
Freedom from the past

Freedom to desire
Freedom to think what you please
Freedom to ask for what you want
Freedom to dance in the rain
Freedom to know what love really means
Freedom to trust
Freedom to feel amazing just the way you are
Freedom to smile
Freedom to find where safe is for you
Freedom to live anyway you choose
Freedom to forgive
Freedom to be forgiven
Freedom to love yourself a little more each day

Today is a good day to remember you are free to be.
