“Freedom lies in being bold.”
– Robert Frost
Do you think much about freedom? Specifically, your freedom, and what it really means to you?
I think about it a lot. Sparked by the flame of freedom, I embarked on the journey of self-discovery by way of an entrepreneurial adventure. The good news is no matter the path to freedom you choose, you can always be on the journey of self-discovery. The only requirement: be open. If freedom is what you seek, then be open to it finding its way to you.
In America, we are days away from celebrating the Independence of our country. This past week, I’ve been where it all started, experiencing some of the rich history of this country and seeing a slice of Americana. Walking the quaint main streets of these small New England towns, American flags on every wrap-around porch, decorating every lawn, inspires me to give even more thought to the meaning of freedom.
Speaking your truth.
Walking the path of your choosing.
Being boldly you.
Freedom is acceptance — of yourself, as you are — yet continuing to challenge yourself to be better than you were yesterday.
Perhaps you’ve been imprisoned by your mind, wanting to break free from the shackles of your thoughts. You can’t outrun them, so instead confront them. Sometimes the only way out is through. Your thoughts can either imprison you or free you. The choice lies within, as you hold the key. You are the owner of the decision.
I choose freedom. What choice will you make?
Happy Independence Day!
