Taking My Freedom Back!

A couple of days ago, the person I have been renting a room from made several remarks to me regarding my belongings. It took those 2 remarks to make a decision to leave from there. My husband and I have a property 60 miles from where I have my small cleaning business and it makes it difficult to drive back and forth. This summer my father passed away and my whole world changed. I realized that I had to make changes no matter how difficult they seemed to be. I have no place to live at for the present time, as I do not want to commit to an apartment which is expensive and I no longer wish to live under the rules of someone else. I want my total freedom to concentrate on my self-education, reading, writing and just move about the city like a nomad for a time. In the sixties, when I was a young girl, I wanted to hitch-hike and just travel and be free and I could not do that because of my parents. Now I am almost sixty and I am going to do just that and still be responsible and live life accordingly.  As I am writing this, I know I have made the right decision and that my journey will be an adventure!

I will look forward to hearing about your adventures. Good for you for choosing freedom! Be careful out there and God Bless!

I read your comment at a time when I am feeling very down! Reading your comment was like hearing the words of God. I felt that I was choosing to run away now I know that I am going to a place where I need to be, to grow, to be free unencumbered by the world and its trappings. Thank you so very much for what you have shared!

I read your story because it was linked to a friend of mine that is a friend of yours also. Your story illustrates the courage of your spirit. Here is a quote I found in my book The Artist's Way last night, it is relative to your current state of being, and it is a beautiful quote:<br />
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.<br />
<br />
You are daring to dare right now. The world will open it's doors to you, and you will shine with the brilliance that is your own true nature. Bravo to you and happy sojourning!

Thanks for your vote of support. You worded my soon-to-be experience in such a magical, idealistic way! I know that initially the going will be rough but if I don't try it will never happen. Thanks again!!!<br />
