How I Found a New Sense of FREEDOM!
This past weekend I had the chance to see “Cloud Atlas”. While it was a bit long, the great performances, transformational costume/make-up and inspiring message made it a film worth seeing. There were a few important messages, but one of the characters made this statement, which has stuck in my brain since. Couldn’t find the exact quote, but it went like this-
Those who value freedom the most are the ones that don’t have it.
What a great reminder to value something we often take for granted, our freedom!
It’s a natural reaction to complain when things don’t go our way, we meet a long line, get stuck in traffic, find the store is sold out of the very thing we need NOW!
We forget that we actually have a choice to stand in line or go another time.
We have a choice to let these kinds of unexpected things get us down.
We can simply change our focus and put things in perspective.
I mean, we have our freedom! What does that mean to you?
For me, it means
-I have the opportunity to go outside when I want and appreciate the sun!
-I am grateful for the opportunity to live in a country where I can, as a woman, open and run my own business!
-I can write this to you, without being censored!
What does your FREEDOM mean to you?
