As we celebrate our nations freedom, I cannot help but to think about our personal freedom. After what we’ve been through and what we are currently going through, I can’t help to think what do we need to be freed from. Is it the shame of your loss? Is it the pressure from those around you? Do you need to be freed from your own thoughts?
I constantly select my thoughts desperately trying not to think negatively regarding our current situation. I find my freedom when I am able to dwell in the blessing of what is. And what is…is this very moment. Nothing else is present. Enjoy and bask in the greatness that is this moment. You have been created for moments such as these. Are you going to set yourself free from your thoughts? I pray that you do. I pray that we find the strength to let it go. Let it all go! We may only find the strength for freedom today and tomorrow we may have to muster up the will to find it again. That’s ok. We must continue fighting until the victory is ours. At 8:23am on July 4th, 2017 my victory is being free from the pressure that I have placed on myself! What’s yours?
