As we celebrate the concept of freedom this week, I’ve thought about the freedom I have to create my own life. I am free to be who I want to be. I can live the life I choose. But (and there’s always a but, right?) I have to actually choose that life. It’s not about wishful thinking. It’s about letting go of the crap that keeps me stuck in a rut, which for me usually boils down to negative thinking or habits and patterns which support a belief about myself and my life which I want to change. To fully enjoy my freedom I must take responsibility for creating my own kick-ass life. It’s not about hard work and struggle. Rather, it’s about harnessing the energy and excitement and enthusiasm that I have for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
