If you frequently feel that you crave more freedom in your life or career (note: unrelated to the pandemic), then it's time to ask yourself the big question - what is in the way and what needs to happen for you to feel free? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hear about the desire for freedom all the time. Some want flexibility and liberty in careers. Some wish for fewer financial and family obligations to free up time and mental capacity to do what they love. Others need to detach from toxic people and unhealthy environment to feel free in their hearts. Mostly, we are talking about inner freedom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyone can articulate what they wish, but when it comes to taking action, I hear a lot of "I can't do this" and "I can't do that." We quickly shut down when we think about leaving our comfort zones. We hold ourselves back with our own excuses and trap ourselves in self-imposed limitations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you hope for more inner freedom, try this today - have a kind and honest internal dialogue with yourself. What self-limitations are in the way of reaching for your freedom? What mindset would help you defeat these limitations? Inner freedom is something you can create if you choose it. Start by looking beyond the limits that you set for yourself. Instead of focusing on what you can't do, think about what you can do and take one little step forward. Utilize the resources and support that you have and ask for guidance when you need it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
May you have all the freedom you desire in the mind, body, and heart.
