Freedom



How much time are you giving to what others think of you? How much energy are you wasting trying to change the perceptions others have of you? How many days are you allowing to pass with you living in your past? Are you free? Or are you chained to expectation in which you will never live up to?


“FREE”, a word we use effortless, but fail to realize the struggle it takes to fully achieve it. A word in which opens the doors to limitless power, yet me of us find ourselves weak and afraid of it… You see there are two sides to “freedom”, there’s the “from” and “to”. Unfortunately, most people only find one… So let’s talk about it…


“Freedom From”: Some of us have been freed from some things… Maybe it was a toxic relationship; draining job; an abusive parent, or how about words that chained us and left us slaves to a master who should have never controlled us… We were able to wake up to what was wrong, but continued to sleep on what iss right… We were freed from, but we never freed ourselves to…


“Freedom To”: Some of us have been freed from some things, but we aren’t free to live our truth; be our authentic selves, or find freedom to live a life in which makes our hearts smile… Many of us aren’t free because we are still chained to fear of the thoughts and perceptions; expectations and limitations of others… There are those who are physically chainless, but shackled mentally. We’ve been freed from, but struggle and even resist to being free to…


What I know for sure is… There are doors wide open right in front of you and it is up to you whether or not you walked through it… Freedom sometimes come at a cost, but are you willing to pay it? Life has gifted you the opportunity to be undeniably YOU (Freedom To)… It has removed the obstacles holding you back (Freedom From), but if you want to move forward, you can’t be afraid… Afraid of the power within. Afraid of the unknown. Afraid of possibly failing. You’ve been freed “from” to be freed “to”, don’t allow this opportunity to pass you by…. Many people never reach this place. Stop worrying about what others are going to say, that’s a chain… Stop worrying about if you’re going to succeed, that’s a chain… Stop worrying about how your family and friends will receive you, that’s a chain… Be who and do what you want to be… This is your life and you’ve lived long enough in bondage… Life has freed you from your past, so you can be free to live your future…
