Deliciousness of Freedom

June 29th, 2014 in Blog

Happy Independence Day! The 4th of July is so wonderful. I will be in Wichita, Kansas with all 4 of my brothers, most of their children and 3 grand babies I haven’t met yet (all under the age of 14 months!). It will be hot and humid but the barbecue and the sweet corn and the fireworks and the laughter of babies and my brothers pranking me (like they always do!) will be delicious. 

I love the 4th of July because it truly is about independence and it always makes me really think deeply about freedom and independence. And I don’t mean the political kind (although that certainly makes all the rest of it possible). I mean the true freedom and independence to live our lives the way we want to live them. 

And the sad thing for me is that almost everyone I talk to tells me they can’t live their life the way they truly want to. And they always have someone else that is the reason for why they can’t. It’s usually a spouse, or partner, or girlfriend/boyfriend,  child, a boss, a parent or someone else. Another person who is making it “impossible” for them to live the way they want to live. 

Guess what? It’s just not true. While it is true that we have responsibilities to other people, it’s your choice whether you allow other people to control your life. I’m not saying you don’t need to take care of your child, of course you need to take care of your child. But who’s running your household? Who makes the rules? When I was growing up, everything was planned around my parents, not around the children. 

And I’m not saying you don’t take care of your spouse/partner/girlfriend/boyfriend. Of course you do. You are together to help each other be the best you can be. But does that mean giving up your own knowing and independence? I don’t think so. It’s so interesting to me, I coach couples all the time and very often there is a  “thing” that one person in the relationship wants to do and thinks they can’t because the other one won’t “let” them. They don’t tell the other person, or if they do it’s always in an angry, nagging way. What I’ve discovered is that when one partner can hear your heart’s desire from your heart (and not from anger and nagging), they actually WANT their partner to have the “thing” and be fulfilled. 

Are you living a life of freedom and independence? Do you want to? What is one small change you could make right now in honor of Independence Day to start you on that path? Figure out what it is and tell me about it, I’d love to hear from you – Click here
