It was nearing the end of our trip, and I realized it happened again. I told myself, "I feel bound by so many things: School, the weight of wanting to leave a mark and make a difference, lack of time, lack of brain space. As soon as we get away, the chains will fall."
But there I sat, still bound by everything around me. Am I taking pictures that will be good enough to print and frame when we get home? Are we seeing enough? Are we doing enough? Is freedom around the corner? In the next city? Back home AFTER the trip?
It was a cool morning, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with a breeze on my makeupless face. I realized, I WANT TO BE FREE.
Even just recognizing that fact in the moment has helped me experience The Abundant Life, The Sweet Life, more and more each day. It has me thinking, what does FREE mean to you?
These are a few things lately that have reminded me that life is so much more than what other people think of me--or don't.
I want to hear in the comments, what does FREE look like to you?
