What is freedom

Like for many things in my life, I believe freedom is a state of mind. I build the prisons in my king and my ming stays trapped in there because I chose it to be that way. And breaking free is another choice I can make, but -alas!- don’t make often enough.

Being with friends, sharing a bottle of red wine, walking in the rain, caring only for what matters, forgetting the must’s and should’s for a brief moment — this is freedoms. It comes in many forms and shapes, I might not be able to describe it properly, but I know it when it’s there.

Take some time and appreciate all the good in your life. And there lies freedom. There lies happiness. Open your mind and let it in.
