“Free To Be Me”


Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature. –Benjamin Franklin

Remember the song “Born Free?” It popped in my head as I read the quote above.

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart

Live free and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star

Stay free, where no walls divide you
You’re free as the roaring tide
So there’s no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free

– Born Free Lyrics | MetroLyrics

I cannot experience true freedom until I first experience it within myself. I allow too many outside influences to stripe away my very own God given right. I admit I’m a work in progress. I have to work at remembering the freedom I have to choose what I allow myself to believe about me. If I live by the judgments that others place upon me than I live according to someone else’s thoughts. I become divided from my own truth. And as the song encourages us to, “stay free where no walls divide you.” So I’m practicing as I exercise my own personal freedom first. It means getting rid of the limitations my own thoughts place upon me. Than I become as free as the wind blows,to no longer feeling enslaved by the overwhelming need to please everyone else. I’m free!

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
