In honor of it being Memorial Day, I would like to contemplate what it means to us to be free. What does being free mean to you?
In your journal on the top of the page, write I Am free…. then just start writing anything that comes out. In my journal I plan on making a list of things that demonstrate freedom in my life. I can make it an even more powerful exercise by adding gratitude to the end of each statement.
I Am free:
1. to live wherever I want. Thank you!
2. to pursue any kind of work I want to do. Thank you!
3. I can wear anything I want (so long as I wear something out in public. Ha!) Thank you.
4. I can create, research, and connect with others on the internet without censorship. Thank you
5. I am free to watch anything I want to watch on tv and read anything I want to read without censorship. Thank you
6. On any given day I am free to change anything about my life. Thank you
I will stop there. You get the idea. your turn.
Being aware of our freedoms and what we have to be thankful for is very powerful.
The measure of mental health is the disposition to find good everywhere. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I dedicate this post to the many men and women who have served their country so that the rest of us may enjoy the freedoms that we have.
