The Truth is That you are Free

#FreedomJunkie

The truth is that you. are. free.

 

It doesn’t always feel that way

 

I know. I’ve been there

 

Feeling so stuck

 
Feeling so trapped by the cubicle walls or the RRSPs or the fact that you’ve been there for such a long time.
 
Yes, you may have responsibilities. People for whom you have decided to care.
 
But even those responsibilities are a choice.
 
You have chosen to have a mortgage or a family or a job. And which job and which partner. Both choices.
 
In any given moment, you are free to make another choice.
 
If you’re a good, kind person (and I’m going to go ahead and assume that you are), you’re probably not going to abandon your minor children and run off to the Maldives to live in a hut on the beach (though if you decided to live out that scenario and take them with you, you’ll get a thumbs up from me).
 
But even that does not make you trapped
 
Even just the idea that you CHOSE this partner, this job, these children, this mortgage (however unconsciously those decisions might have been made. been there too) can feel kind of liberating.
 
think about it for a second.
 

you are free

 
yes, you have bills
 
yes, you have to pay those bills
 
But why does the paying of the bills have to negate your freedom?
 
There are millions of people on this planet who are paying their bills in ways that make them feel expansive and joyful.
 
Why should YOU be a martyr to your obligations? Why can’t you be responsible AND exercise your freedom?
 
Here’s the thing
 
There are a lot of women on this planet who are not free.
 
I carry them in my heart.
 
I feel them whenever I’ve been tempted to double down and settle harder for a job or a relationship or a friendship or poor health or anything else that feels less than the truth – which is that I am free and so are you
 

In this moment, I am free to make a decision

 
And so are you
 
You are free to make a decision to exercise your freedom and make a choice that feels lighter or more expansive with respect to anything that feels heavy or constrictive.
 
It might be inconvenient
 
It will undoubtedly require new habits
 
but lets promise, here and now, that we’ll give up this idea that our lives are governed by anything other than our decision (moment-to-moment) to lean into freedom or into fear.
 

If you need me, I’ll be over here, leaning into freedom. Because #FreedomJunkie
