If you’re reading this right now, take a moment to be aware of your surroundings, your feelings and your physical body. Are you happy with it all? If you are, that’s truly wonderful. And if you aren’t, well today is the day you start living free.
So what does ‘living free’ mean exactly?
First of all, don’t get stuck in the rat race. Yes, pursue your education, nurture your mind and work hard. But I challenge you to work hard for something you’re passionate about. Whether that be stocking groceries or becoming a high-powered attorney, do it with love in your heart.
It’s not always about how much money you make, how much more successful you are than your peers or the company car you get to drive — it’s about creating change by doing something you love and never actually “working” a day in your life.
Most importantly, see the world. Nothing is more freeing than setting sail on your own adventure. It doesn’t have to be an epic journey across the world, but make time to go outside and actually see the world.
Appreciate the grass in your backyard, the sun hiding behind the clouds and fresh air. Or take it a step further and live abroad! Do whatever your heart desires and take the time to figure out exactly what that is.
We are not trees whose roots get planted in the ground and are expected to stay there until it dies. We have legs to move. We have hearts to follow. And dreams to make come true. So, how are you living free?
