1. CELEBRATE YOUR FREEDOM

1 November 2015

Celebrate your freedom
This year has been tough. Life threw me a few curve-balls I didn’t know how to handle. There was no coping mechanism and I found myself struggling. I felt so devoid of options, so immobile, so restricted and it was crushing my soul. But the sun comes up again and you just have to push forward.

None of you knew but actually we’ve been counting down to the moment I regained my freedom. It’s been so intensely liberating. The first few days were kind of surreal. But there were small conquests and celebrations that others might consider mundane but felt brilliant to me.

We all have our, responsibilities, our crosses to carry and in that sense life is full of restrictions. I guess it comes down to navigating your way through all the bull in a way that still enables you to feel free. To feel like you’re living. So celebrate your freedom! Seize opportunities, grab that bull by the horns and decide with conviction. YOU claim your course.

It’s not about doing grant things. On paper my life still looks like even a second hand cars salesman would have trouble selling it, but I’m in charge again and I’m loving it! On that note I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the Color purple, one of my favorite movies:

I’m poor, I’m black, I may even be ugly but dear god I’m here.
I’m here!
