What does freedom mean to you?
If you’re like me, it has different parts to it.
We’re coming up to July 4th, next weekend, the date that marks the United States of America’s freedom. We celebrate with fireworks, cookouts, parties and red, white and blue is everywhere.
What Freedom means to me is being free to be who I am, first and foremost, and it starts inside of me.
First it takes me knowing who I am, what matters to me, what I value, what and who I love.
Next it’s about me being able to look in the mirror and say, “I love you”.
It took me awhile back in the 1970’s when I was challenged, during a personal growth class, to consciously do this exact exercise every day, to feel that I did love myself. At first, when I looked in the mirror, I cried, every time for awhile, because I did not love myself.
As time went on and I became aware of who I was and what mattered to me, I began to slowly learn to love myself. I do think it’s a process to come to this real feeling inside of yourself.
I’m teaching about this in my new 7 Part Master Class Living In The Glow. This is part of one of the components I’m teaching in Module 2, this coming Thursday. www.conniehertz.com/glow-course
Freedom is also, expressing and saying what you think and believe. Becoming vulnerable to share with others, who you are. I teach about people living on “auto pilot” and not slowing down long enough to pay attention to their surroundings, others, and themselves.
Financial freedom is another part of being free. Having enough money to not live in fear and worry all of the time. I’m not an expert in this facet, although I am teaching in one of my 7 Modules about the Universal Law of Compensation, and I’m bringing in a friend of mine who is an expert in finances to share during Module 5.
Freedom to love who you want to love. Big important freedom!
What other freedom’s are important to you? Will you share with me below, your thoughts on freedom?
I’d love to hear them!
I hope you all slow down enough to appreciate the freedoms we have here in the United States of America, and also stop to think about what freedom means to you.
Do you feel free in your life?
Here’s to each of your own personal freedoms!
