Have you ever had one of those moments when you come to know something as if for the first time?
I had one of those moments today – I realised, with every cell of my body that Freedom Is A Choice.
I can be, do and have anything that I desire by simply choosing it. I don’t have to do nor be what others expect of me, or rather what I think they may expect of me, I can be exactly who I choose to be. What a revelation!
I have spent a life time trying to please some external being, all made up in my own mind of course, imagining what my family, colleges or friends want me to be and I was delightfully awakened to the fact that I can stop listening to that inner dialogue that says” be a good………..”, and simply be me.
Wow – the freedom I feel from coming to this realisation is amazing, I feel I have been handed a blank canvas and I can paint any scene I choose. Of course I have always been able to do this however I haven’t know it with such clarity as I do now. I realise all the restraints have been my own doing and now I feel so excited and some what relieved, all I need to be is exactly who I am and, if I divert from my path I can choose again tomorrow to get right back on.
I am free to be exactly who I choose to be.
There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
