Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time contemplating “Who I Want to Be?” and the word that I cannot escape, is FREE. But what does that even mean? My mind ran in circles, trying to understand what it was about the word free that was calling to me.
I should have just Googled it immediately because there, stated so succinctly, was the exact thing that the scribbles in my notebook, couldn’t quite capture.
I just want to be me, I want to be confident in my beliefs and in my actions, I want to shine from the inside out and I want to be proud of everything that I am and everything that I stand for. And to do that, I need to stop caring so much about how my choices affect ‘you’.
I want to be free of the burden of putting the world on the pedestal upon which I am supposed to stand.
I wrote that sentence almost three weeks ago and at the time, it felt like something to strive for, something to hope for, something that maybe one day I could achieve. But today, I read that sentence and its no longer a want, its a fact.
Every single day, I get up and I choose me.
It used to be a challenge, but these days, I’m feeling incredibly free.
