freedom to…

hammock reading-500x


i’m thinking about freedom.


the freedom to choose to lie in the hammock and write this.

the freedom to live in a stable, comfortable home with gardens that keep me sane.

the freedom to love and live with the man i choose.

the freedom to retrain to do work that i LOVE.

the freedom to bake and eat chocolate flourless cake with British black tea and cream just because my inner little girl wants to–and not be afraid of getting fat. (sip…yes, in the hammock!)

the freedom to stay off facebook because i need a break from the computer.

the freedom to do my spiritual practice in whatever way calls me today.

the freedom to defrost the freezer because we have another in the basement.

the freedom to leave my Enneagram Institute job after 14 years
of dedicated service, care, and love.

the freedom to choose what i want to do today.

the freedom to squish those milkweed-eating beetles or simply trap them.

the freedom to experience all my feelings, and
to comfort, accept, and love myself through them.


i am GRATEFUL for all this freedom!


How are you choosing and celebrating
your “freedom TO” this 4th of July week?


Do you have friends who would enjoy being reminded
about the freedom in their lives?
I’d LOVE it if you freely shared this blog post with your friends on facebook! 🙂


Believe it or not, having habits and rituals that support you
can create more freedom!

  1. After reading your wonderful ode to freedom, I felt so relaxed that I went to lie down in the middle of the day and read my mystery novel. Thank you, Katy.


  2. and from today’s news of the fatal shooting in St. Paul, where i live: the freedom to live my life without fear that i’ll be pulled over and shot for no good reason.
