“That’s what it means to really feel alive—to be so immersed in the passionate bliss of this moment that you don’t think about yesterday or tomorrow. You just enjoy what you’re doing and love every piece of it.” Lori Deschene
When we touch into our own state of freedom, we experience a deeper sense of Self. It’s the feeling of ease, joy and empowerment all wrapped into one. When we find freedom there are no shoulds or have-tos and the other things that make us feel bound. We let go of the need to know what is going to happen. We let go of the need to control. Freedom means feeling alive.
When was the last time you felt free? Freedom is a state of being more than any set of actions but sometimes certain actions help to stir up those feelings. Here are a few freeing actions:
Do something you thought you couldn’t do, meditate, tell someone something that you know will make them smile, reflect on the most amazing parts of your life, dance away the night, play in the ocean, spread your arms wide and breathe deep, stand up for yourself, take a day off, book a trip, rent a jet ski, do the things on your bucket list, put on a pretty dress and twirl in the sunshine, jump up and down on a trampoline, do something that scares you, complete a task that weighs heavily on you, play in the ocean, climb to the top of a mountain, feel the wind whip as you sail into a sunset, star gaze, laugh so hard you fall over, imagine yourself tied up in ropes and then cutting all the ropes easily away, do something where you go fast (safely), or fall in love.
“And when it was over nothing defined us, other than the moments that made us feel free.” -R.M. Drake
