Freedom.

Freedom is to BE YOURSELF without permission.

Ditch the expectations.

Accept yourself/life and the life of others around you
Just the way it is.

Love yourself.

BE LOVE.

Toss those expectations you have into the sea. Live without them. Love with no expectation.

Freedom is being YOU without permission. Thanks to Paul for the photo!

Beautiful inspiration

I was completely blown away by this story and just had to share it with you. It was posted today by two of my closest friends who live in Rochester, NY – Karlie Cary Lanni and Amanda Childs. Thank you ladies for sharing this with me. ♥

The following blog by Michael Jura was shared to me today about the story of a woman named Aimee Mullins who was born with no shin bones. She went on to become an Olympic Athlete, a model, an actress and the ultimate inspiration. I urge you to to read Michael Jura’s blog and watch the video of Aimee speaking. It is so powerful!

“…..another reminder that we have control over our thoughts, our actions, and ultimately our reality. If we can tap into the power of our human spirit, reach into our subconscious, and dictate our goals, we’re sure to achieve them.”
