Many people complain about their lives. They are unsatisfied with their jobs, with their relationships, with the place they live. They feel that their life is dull. It seems odd when we think about it. We know that they have the freedom to choose.
We all have the freedom to choose.
Every part of our lives, both the big decisions and the everyday acts present us with choice. For the most part we carry on as we did yesterday and the day before, and the month and the year before. We live a life that is expected of us. We live as though we are in a prison made of our habits and our fear.
We are afraid of our freedom.
To accept that we are free to choose means taking responsibility for ourselves, for our lives, and for the unknown consequences of our decisions.
But how else are we to live? How else can we be fully alive if we don’t take this responsibility?
Take the chance. Tear down the prison walls. Make the changes that you yearn for. Take a leap of faith in yourself, that you can create your life, rather than just letting it happen.
Have courage and choose freedom.
