Freedom

Standard

Intentional pursuit of freedom

In myself,

In others.

I’m sad when I see

people settling.

Settling for less freedom

than they could have.

Tied up, restricted,

a shadow of their full selves.

Not accessing

what’s freely offered to them.

Freedom

Not a licence for chaos

Not a license for selfishness or boundary-less-ness

which could hurt others,

or ourselves.

Freedom

from what holds us back

Freedom

from fear, from sorrow, from bitterness, from past hurts, from anger,

from stuff we don’t have to settle with.

Freedom

to be all we can be.

Freedom

to be the fullness of you.

Don’t settle.

That freedom is available.

Pursue it.
