Happy 4th of July!

I know the 4th is all about celebrating our freedom as a country (if you’re from the U.S., that is!), but I thought it would be a good time to think about our freedom on a personal level.

In what area of your life do you feel bound, trapped, or stuck in a constant cycle of fear and distress? Where would you like to feel freedom?

How about being able to look in the mirror and feel free to smile at your reflection, no matter your size, shape, firmness, zittyness, hair style, etc?

How about the freedom to sit down to a meal and enjoy it, thoroughly, while listening only to your body’s satiety signals, not your mind telling you what it thinks of the food and drink choices you’re making.

How about feeling free to love yourself completely? To walk or run or jump or play and feel completely free to move your body any way you want to, just for fun, not for calorie burn? To ask for exactly what you want without apologies or regrets. To dream big. To tell yourself every single day, “I can do anything.”

Where would you like to find freedom?
