the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
Here lately, I have been having several conversations with my clients, friends and family members about limitations, rules, and restrictions. Through these conversations and even from personal experience, we tend to set limits on ourselves based on other people's perception. We often tell ourselves that we aren’t tall enough, small enough, old enough, young enough or even worthy enough to do, have or be certain things.
A little about this look. I wouldn’t ordinarily wear a dress like this because, “I’m too short, not tall enough”, “I don’t normally wear black”, “It's a little too revealing”, “Who do I think I am wearing something like that”. We place limitations on ourselves. We tell ourselves that we can not do, be or wear what we want. I literally saw this dress on the express website and told myself that it wasn’t for me but I decided to go against that voice and do something different. It's not my normal, but it worked despite how I felt or what others may have even thought. Who Cares! I choose Freedom and I clicked on that dress, placed it in my shopping bag and pressed check out!
Our creativity is genuine to who we are, what we look like and what we are designed to do. I am still guilty of this today but I choose Freedom. Freedom To Be Who I Want. Do What I Want. Wear What I Want. #FreedomIsCreativity. Creativity is God's Gift To Us. You see those wings paired, that red lip paired with some attitude? I am opening up these wings and I am being Free. You got this, get out there and put a little swag on it. Choose Freedom!
