What does freedom look like to you?
It could be eating ice cream for breakfast. It could also be setting your own schedule or releasing oneself from a toxic work environment. Maybe it’s learning to walk barefoot in your own home.
Recently I realized that I really didn’t need to have something on my feet at all times in my own home. It was with some degree of shock when I realized that this was an internal block that I carried for years.
While living in a one room cabin we had rough floors. Living in a bigger house we also had unfinished subfloors. I wore slippers, shoes or boots to keep from getting slivers in my feet. In essence my shoes were protection.
Once I started to reflect on this constant shoe issue I realized that my beautiful, finished oak hardwood floors were perfect to walk on barefoot! And the tile kitchen floor so cooling on hot summer feet!
With this new awareness I found myself with yet another layer of freedom. Yet another way to celebrate how far I have come from the experience of being raised in a hoarded home!
What does freedom look like to you? Where can you learn to relax on your journey?
Celebrate freedom this weekend and stay safe!
