Be Free

Wake up and breathe in the person that you are. Your race, religion, creed, and agenda. Your sexuality, socioeconomic status, and your faults. Your experiences, desires, personal history. Breathe it all in.

Time and again, you fall into the same trap. The world tells you who to be, how to act, and what to do and… you listen. Why do you listen?

Boxes do us no good. They attempt to compartmentalize, rationalize, and classify complexities that cannot be contained. You cannot be contained.

Spend some time thinking today about the walls, floor, and ceiling of your box. Who designed this thing? Where’s the escape hatch?

You were not meant to be constricted to this tiny space, to this concise identity.

You were meant to be free, my friend.

So, be free.
