I want to feel free.

I want to wake up everyday feeling refreshed, knowing that how I spend my day is completely up to me.

No 9-5, no shift work, no outside obligations but the ones I choose to take on because they excite my heart.

I don’t want a boss.

No one to tell me what to do, when and how to do it.

I want to feel like I’m actually creating my own life, instead of being told when I’m allowed to live it.

Some may say it’s a pipe dream, unachievable, impossible within the confines of modern society.

But most things that exist by human creation were once thought to be impossible.

So here I sit, continuously searching for an answer. A solution. A way in, instead of a way out.

Brick by brick, step by step, I create something I hope to be proud of someday.

I hope to be free.

  1. Yes!!! Love this. Isn’t it amazing how being trapped inside can totally re-frame your idea of what freedom actually means. I feel like I have gleaned these exact same sentiments out of the whole lockdown period – just discovering what a day is actually worth has been so eye-opening. I wish we could all choose how to use our time more freely, instead of being forced to spend so much of it just earning money to survive. It has definitely made me more conscious with how I am spending my spare time though, so making the most of that is certainly a start I suppose. You might enjoy a poem I wrote recently on what I want to actually remember from the whole quarantine experience as we transition back to ‘normal’ – just thought I’d share it with you in case you’re interested:
