Stuck?

We are lucky to be living in an age where freedom of thought, expression, and constructive action are readily available to us.
We are not living in chains. No one has our freedom locked in a safe.
We are free. We are truly free.

Yet, we are constantly seeking freedom.
We are looking for someone else to set us free, while we ourselves hold the reigns of our destiny.

I know sometimes it just sucks. Life just doesn’t feel right. Everything goes haywire. You spiral down till you hit rock bottom. And this happens over and over.
You seek solace from this scripted life that you live. You seek freedom.

But are you not free already?
What’s stopping you? Money?

If only I had X amount of money, I could retire and start a surfing school.
But we both know you’re not going to burn the midnight oil to work towards it. Why? Because. SuperBowl. Game of Thrones.

Taking a leap towards your dream is a scary idea, right? What if you fail?
What would your family and friends say? Will they still be supportive?

You’d think, it’s much more comfortable staying where you are.
You’d think, it’d be nice if I had my own surfing school but you know, you’ve got to keep up with your life.

So you work super hard to keep up with your lifestyle. Working harder and harder and seeking fulfillment from external things.
You begin to buy stuff that you don’t need to impress people you don’t like, just for the sake of validation.

That is when you are stuck. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living a life you don’t like living.
And you begin to look for a way out. You begin to seek freedom.

But are we not free? Are you not free?
Free to make your own decisions? To choose your own thoughts? To take charge of your own life?

Oh I see. You are just afraid to take the leap.
You want freedom but you also feel comfortable where you are.
You want freesom but you are also afraid of criticism, rejection, or failure.

You begin to conjure up ideal situations where – if only you had X amount of money, you could start this or that.
But we both know you’re not going to work for it, if only in your leisure time. Why? Because. SuperBowl. Game of Thrones.

Are you really free? Free to make your own decisions? To choose your own thoughts? To take charge of your own life?
We are not living in chains. No one has our freedom locked in a safe.

Still seeking freedom? Feeling stuck?
Well, what are YOU going to do about it?
