I Am a Free Spirit

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41,393 People

    I believe it comes from my Native American side.

    My birth father by all accounts was one who marched to the beat of his own drummer. He's lived all over the US, from Florida to Maine, always a bit of an adventurer. I have that very same sense of adventure, and if I didn't have my family to help raise, I would be traveling...

    Sitting in the cage Weary

    and worn Shackled and torn The wild beautiful free spirit Broke free from her captors That wished to tame and claim her Ripping the bonds of all their desires That bound her And stifled her She soared free Into blissful freedom Away off into the blue yonder..

    I feel like I should be somewhere else right

    now. It's not that I don't appreciate my life right now. I just need change is all

    I'm tired of living up to expectations

    and not doing what I want. I need a way to be free, happy, and healthy in my everyday life. Instead of running away this time I think I'll make it work my way.

    I am a free spirit. I have always known

    that i was different from everybody else. The older i get the more free spirited i become. I just want to help everyone! I wish our generation would open up their eyes and wake up. I want everyone to realize that we just need to help each other and spread love. Recently i have...

    I like exploring what we go through.

    I think i always knew i was a free spirited person. I always keep my positiveness going through me and my friends so that they know i'm always going to be there for them no matter what time it is, place or even if they live on the other side of the world. I think the older i'm...

    OH! The Places!There are

    so many places I want to see. I have a burning desire to explore. It will never desert me. Things I want to do. A bucket list that's as long as the Amazon. Oh yes, the Amazon. I want to lounge in a houseboat on that great river. Make jokes with the indigenous folks. Perhaps eat...

    A philosophical mind❤️ Not conforming to

    the mediocre system, rather questioning it. Question is, how free do you want to be?

    I'm totally free, not accountable to anybody

    but myself. I know my strengths and I know my weaknesses. I know I detest cages, routines, jealousy, but love my capacity to overcome difficulties. I love to share, give, I find it hard to trust, take. But I have found a place in my world, I am a mother, a lover, a friend to few...

    I hate being forced to do things.

    I like to do what I want, whenever I want, and I would be able to, if it weren't for the man-made restrictions of this world.

    I want to run out in the wild

    and live in the woodlands with books for company or else dress all floaty and bohemian and drive around the country in a Volkswagen camper van with flowers decorating it. And i can promote peace and love and feel free as a bird.

    I am very much a free spirit thanks to my

    parents. They were very open minded and encouraged me to be the same. They lived their lives openly with family and their friends. They loved the freedom to do as they please and I am the same way.

    Last night there was a beautiful thunderstorm.

    It rained so hard. It's funny how we all run to our cars or inside so we don't get wet. I decided to walk instead of run. I decided to feel the rain on my skin and let it mess up my hair. We all spend so much time in life worrying about the wrong things. "I'm going to be five...

    for that lightbulb moment. I've done the inner work. I'm keeping it real. I'm mostly living in reality, but somehow I know I've got a hell of a long way to go. It doesn't ever really end, this journey of self discovery, and I like to pull this old chestnut out when I'm in need...

    I do not conform to the molds

    that others set before me. I always feel that there is more to life than just trying to fit in to the groups or types that are around me. I'd rather stand out as a loner than belong to a group that does not accept me for the person that I am.

    I don't think being a free spirit has to

    necessarily mean that one is frivolous and care-free with no regard to appropriateness. I think it varies from person to person but for me in translates to that I don't feel it dire that I conform each part of myself anymore to appease others by sacrificing my truth for theirs...

    Let me find freedom in watching the sun,

    moon and stars wheel overhead. The lives of myriad living things going about their daily business before me, as I sit and observe in quiet reflection. Take inspiration from the power of nature. Let my undisturbed thought wander old and familiar paths. Let my imagination explore...

    When she transformed into a butterfly,

    the other caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she had always been. ...but she had wings : )

    To grow we have to push through the dirt.

    And some people don't want you to grow because it reminds them that they are small. But don't let small people hold you back from experiencing the sun.
