“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.” ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

When we feel “trapped” in the never-ending cycle of making money, taking care of our family, and taking care of ourselves, it’s hard to remember that we actually live in a perpetual state of freedom.

Exercise your ability to be free today, even if it’s in little things. Drive yourself to work a different way. Eat ice cream for breakfast. Call someone and tell them you love them. Yes, even being able to say “I love you” to someone without judgement is a freedom we take for granted.
