Where Freedom Is

photo-1507890351015-36826e252e9aSometimes what we think is freedom is actually a trap. We think we are stepping into freedom, yet we discover we are walled into something else instead.

On the other hand, when we fully engage in and explore what we feel trapped by, we often find there is freedom within it. We simply haven’t found it yet. We haven’t let ourselves change and be changed. We haven’t been willing to step into the discomfort long enough to consider our perspective is limited. We refuse to be humble and try something that frightens us, something that is promising even if we don’t see it at the time. We believe we know every outcome and consequence, but we don’t.

Let’s not assume we know what freedom is. Let’s find it, near and far. Let’s appreciate  it. Let’s live it.
