To Be Truly Free

Since it's the 4th of July, what better thing to talk about but freedom.

What does it mean to be truly free?

To be free, as defined in the dictionary is to have the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.  To be liberated or to be independent.

Having said that, how can you say that you are truly free?

For me, to be truly free, is to be no longer enslaved by your past. To remember what happened may be, but to not feel the same resentment, hatred, or regret for what did not occur.

To be truly free is to not hinder yourself from doing what you want.

To be truly free is to follow your heart.

To be truly free is to wake up and go to bed without worrying, because you know that whatever life gives you, you can handle.

To be truly free is to not let fear paralyze you from moving forward.

To be truly free is to do it afraid.

Are we truly free?
