True Freedom

Sometimes freedom looks like exuberance–whooping, hollering, and dancing wildly Other times freedom looks like quiet stillness–the complete absence of striving, with no need to prove anything to anyone Sometimes freedom looks like laughing Sometimes freedom looks like crying Sometimes freedom looks like permission to feel nothing at all Sometimes freedom looks effortless Other times freedom … More True Freedom

What I Really Need

I’ve taken a bit of an unscheduled break from the blogosphere over the past couple of weeks, but this morning I ran across a hard copy of this post from a few years ago.
