Freedom

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose..." and so Janice Joplin's song Me and Bobby McGee goes. I love it! Walking in nature yesterday I pondered this word freedom--actually I felt it! It was an aha moment born of a sunny crisp day of fall colors. At that point in time, I felt this sense of freedom. I could walk and be in my head, feeling unhampered by anything or anyone. I felt free. It was this feeling of owning my time and energy, this feeling of lightness, this feeling of intense oneness with myself, not dependent on what anyone thinks of me, how anyone views me or what anyone says about me. And of course, it is born of so much work on myself to get there. When you can detach and know that you are enough as you are, you feel free...free to be yourself.

What does freedom mean to you?

  1. Love that lines, "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose..." It certainly is very true; when we have nothing to lose, we are free to act and we can act freely.
