Freedom | What is freedom to you? How do you celebrate freedom in your daily life?
Freedom is seeing the sun rise and not only recognizing the comfort of the sun's consistent daily ritual, but also feeling gratitude for its warmth on my face, the reflection on the water, and being wholly inside the moment.
Freedom is watching the seagull fly around the bay with its wings spread wide, knowing that it can go anywhere that it wants to go. Knowing that I too, can go anywhere that I want to go.
Freedom is witnessing the moon set into the haze of the sunrise with the understanding that not everything that is out there can be seen, and embracing the unknown of the universe. The unknown tomorrow, even.
Freedom is knowing that in this moment I was on vacation in a place I had never been to before. Exploring, discovering, tasting, admiring, learning, and becoming something new with each experience I have.
Freedom is walking around the great city of San Francisco with my wife, hand in hand, without fear. Loving more, and fearing less every day.
Freedom is living without the shame of who you are, without the fear of becoming who you are meant to be, and without anyone who might keep you right where you are.
