Thankful for the Freedom

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for many people — and downright scary and depressing for others. With Thanksgiving coming up, that may mean relief. Or it may mean more stress.

Whatever your situation, remember this:

No matter where you are right now, don’t wait to start living the life of your dreams. Start today!

Be thankful that you have the freedom to thrive.

Yes, you have that freedom. Right now. Whoever or wherever you are.

What are you gonna do with that freedom?

Are you gonna bitch and moan that the world is a mess, that people are always pissing you off, that you don’t have enough time to do fun stuff anyway?


Are you gonna grab that freedom by the horns and use it to fill your life with meaningful experiences?

What meaningful experiences do YOU want in your life? Visualize them with INTENSE clarity!

You want to take a vacation? Great! To where? Feel your toes in the sand or the crisp air on your cheeks.

You want to learn how to rock climb? Great! Imagine that happy sting in your muscles as you reach new heights.

Maybe you just want more peace, quiet, and serenity? Great! Imagine yourself staring out the window, completely guilt-free, without a care in the world. (You can do that right NOW if you want!)

Being a “millionaire” is all in your head.

Define what you REALLY want.

Most likely, it’s easier to get than you think.

And remember:

“Perfection is not when there is no more to add, but no more to take away.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Seek and find those exciting, meaningful experiences. And take away all the “stuff” that’s holding you back.

I’ll ask you once more: What will you do with your freedom?

Write it down. And DO IT!

Make sense?
