89: Freedom

Who doesn’t want it? Who ever said that they’d prefer to work and slave away at a job they hate until the day they collapsed?

What does freedom mean to you?

There are all kinds of freedoms that we as a society have fought for and continue to fight for

The fundamental ones include but are not limited to

  • Human freedom: i.e abolished slavery. Unfortunately this is a continued fight across the world as people are trafficked into forced labour of many forms
  • Love freedom: the fight for people of all backgrounds to love whoever they choose, however they choose and whenever
  • Gender freedoms: equality of all kinds, equal pay, gender equality period
  • Religious freedom: the fight to give people the right to believe and worship whatever they deem worthy of their praise and adoration.

And many more freedoms that have helped society to progressively move forward

These freedoms have not come cheap and I’m merely scraping the surface of their true cost

I wanted to keep this light. The main point being that the human spirit was never designed to feel trapped or caged by anything

Our natural disposition as a species is to grow and evolve, each generation learning from the previous one

But that’s us as a whole, on a wider scale. What about at an individual level? We all have specific freedoms that were either still actively fighting for

Mine are uniquely my own as yours will be to you

As I sit here thinking about the things I want out of life, the person I’d like to become and the things I’d still like to experience

I can’t help but feel fortunate that though I may still have a long way to go, the many things I’ve already experienced, are things that would appear in someone else’s wish list

We all have those accomplishments. We all have lucky experiences that others are hoping to one day experience

We should (and I hate to should on people) be grateful for our freedoms even if to us they appear limited

It could be a lot worse

Be well

  1. Wonderful insight on freedom! It took eons to get where we are now, and we’re still learning. But hey! Progress is progress, right? 😉

    Every milestone we made as a species was usually put into motion by people who saw an error or discovered something new. Like good ‘ol Isaac Newton said, it tends to stay in motion, too! 🙂

    Thank you science! And thank you inventors of old for being the oddballs of the herd! May no outside force detain us, and no action deter us. Amen!

    1. Hey Beth,
      Yeah I would definitely say so, progress is progress and once put it motion, it tends to stay in motion!
      Thank you science and inventors indeed! I love how upbeat you sound today in the comments (you’re always positive but today you’re even more upbeat!)
      Hope you’re well

  2. Thank you,Serge!
    I’m in a good mood, actually! Long story short, I’m back in the groove and plan to write like a maniac tonight.
    Yes. A literal maniac.The poor keyboard of my laptop will be subjected to long hours of my pounding fingers beating it to within an inch of its life.
    Lol! I’m very well and caffeinated, as you see. I hope you are also well!
