Freedom- wonderful concept, but how much do you actually acknowledge or focus on it?
We’re very blessed in this country that we can vote, protest, wear what we like, worship as we choose- we’re lucky. Don’t take that for granted. The women in Saudi Arabia just earned the right to be able to drive. Drive! Something we were able to easily do once we turned 16. When you think about that, notice how many of your freedoms you don’t even honor, you just expect.
The freedom of speech is one that I am particularly passionate about. The right to disagree openly with those in elected positions; to be able to say, “no, that’s unjust.” That is a powerful freedom. Do you use it? Same with voting: women went through hell to earn that right and now, people have become apathetic and don’t exercise the very freedom that was so hard won.
It’s when you stop forgetting how lucky you are to have these freedoms and actually exercise them, that they can slowly be undermined. I won’t go into a whole lecture on the erosion of certain freedoms, but I will say, put value on it. Recognize how fortunate you are to be able to have many freedoms that other people are still fighting for. And there is much more work to be done, clearly. So use your voice, speak your freedoms in what you choose to buy, listen to, participate in, and give attention to. Value your freedom to be you.
Happy 4th of July!!!
P.S.- For fun, before fireworks start, ask your Higher Self to clear outdated parts of you with every explosion, and as the sparkles of light rain down, to help you become more of your truer self.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
