FREE yourself! FREE yourself from habits that suppress you, people who depress you, rules that repress you. Get rid of clothing that binds, and FREE yourself to move in comfort. FREE up some time every week .. or every day.. to express your creativity. FREE your mind of negative thoughts and belittling beliefs. FREE yourself from relationships with people who want only to take and never to give. FREE the poet who's locked inside you. FREE the athlete who never got to run, the ballerina who never got to dance, the diva who never had the freedom to sing. FREE yourself to be the person you were always meant to be!
And that's what I'm doing. It's come to the point in the road of life that I have to choose which path to follow. And I've chosen to follow the path that's going to lead me to places unchartered, places that I won't get to if I stay in this place that's so comfortable.
When I made the decision to move on, I meant to just go quietly without a single word. But as the time drew nearer, thoughts kept coming to my mind of all the good times I've had here, friendships I've made and laughter we've shared. And I just knew that I couldn't go without saying something (well, I'm sure that doesn't come as a big surprise to you guys...lol).
Thank you to everyone who has touched my life in little ways, big ways, and ways that you may not even be aware. May life be good to you.
