What sets you free?
What sets your soul on fire?
What makes you come alive?
What is it for you?
At the end of the day, it’s what we all want, isn’t it?
We might say we want lots of money.
We might say we want recognition.
We might say we want to rise to the top of our field.
We might say we want to be “successful”.
And when we achieve these things, we still aren’t happy, or satisfied. And we’re perplexed. Perhaps what we were searching for wasn’t any of these things at all. Perhaps it’s simply … freedom.
Freedom to live the life we want, in the way we want.
Freedom to live our purpose, even if it’s hard or scary or not very lucrative or doesn’t follow the societal rules for “success”.
Freedom to feel supported and secure in being 100% who we are 100% of the time.
Freedom to jump off the never-ending hamster wheel of daily life and start living a life in alignment with who we are and what we want.
And once we understand that freedom is actually what we are seeking, how would we live going forward? What would we change in our lives? Maybe it’s time to start asking ourselves that question.
