being free

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.  ~Moshe Dayan 

Oh what a year this has been!  It’s certainly had its ups and downs, but lately its been more ups than downs.  Despite what’s been going on, I’m still a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason.”  We may not always know what that reason is or why something is happening, but in the end it all works out.

When I rappelled Over the Edge last weekend, it was a very freeing experience.  It was frightening, as many things in life are, but once I got the courage to go over the edge and begin making my way down, it was so incredibly freeing.  I had my support system in place (harness, carabiners, safety catch, etc.) which is similar to life, as well.  My support system in real life is my wonderful family and friends – always there for me no matter what.  So as I embarked on this journey, I realized I’m starting a new chapter in my life.  I’m free and I’m ready to fly.

  1. Love this! I’ve been making a lot of HUGE, driving decisions lately, and it’s so nice to know that know that, as long as I think my decisions through and truly pray about them to the big dude (at least in my belief system), I can’t really take a wrong step. Everything, no matter what, is going to be okay.

    Thanks for the great message to celebrate the middle of the week. 🙂

  2. So true! With a good support system, anything is possible. And YES to new chapters in life. I know we have both had a hard couple of years, but I look back and don’t regret it because I am only stronger and better now, and I hope you are too. Free to be you!
