If I were to ask the question “What is freedom?” I believe I would get an array of answers. Some would say that freedom is what Martin Luther King stood for. Some might say it’s the ability to say what’s on your mind and not be penalized. Others may view freedom as wearing clothes that “regular” people find different. Be free of sterotypes, be free of rage. Be free of hurt and despair. Be free of con artist. Be free of oppression. Be free to love. Be free to be yourself as that is the greatest freedom.
Life has the biggest stage and is the greatest show of them all.
When things don’t turn out how we want in life, a lot of times we have the tendency to get discouraged or to second guess our actions. Unfortunately, you can come up short and now what? Be pissed? Start haten? Be miserable? Stay positive! All that negative energy is draining! In all likelihood, the next venture will work out for you. Never loose your sense of humor!! And many many many times, I’ve had to take the high road when I wanted to punch someone. I’ve had to be strong when all I wanted to do is be weak and have someone tell me everything will be ok. I can say that when you look at “the big picture” called life, I’m winning and a better person for it! Keep ya head up!
As you get older, you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how big your house is or how fancy your car is. It’s finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you. Your family and friends are what matter to you. Love is what matters to you. Things that are of quality, not of quantity.
Valentine’s day is not just for couples. It’s all about the love! Tell your daughter happy valentine’s day with a giant Hershey’s kiss. Tell your coworker how nice they look in that red shirt! Call your mom and tell her you love her and you were just thinking about her. Make the best of today. Don’t get caught up in commercialization, get caught up in love!
If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.
