What does FREEDOM mean to you?

What would make you feel "free"? Is freedom something you long for? Freedom from what?

I wrote the following paragraphs a while ago on "freedom". I just found it in a folder and realized that a few years later, I have a slightly different view on the topic. Here's what I wrote a few years ago:

Bring passion, embrace your power, live your life and discover your destiny.

Freedom is the end result... You will feel confident, invincible, and free from all the crap you thought you had to put up with and open to all the gifts the world is waiting to present you with.

Ahhh... Freedom ... what a feeling. Freedom from all the negative, not-so-good feelings we have --- a freedom that gives us an attitude that the sky is the limit -- -a freedom that makes us feel that we have whatever we want within our reach. A flexibility to express ourselves and show up just as we are.

Now, today, I have a slightly different view on Freedom. I think that freedom is also a "mind set". If you feel trapped, you are trapped. If you feel poor, you are poor and you will act poor. There needs to be a shift in our consciousness about freedom and all the other things that we want to achieve in our lives. What if you were to feel all those things now, without quite reaching the final goal? What if you could see your end result so clearly that you feel like you are already there?

So, is freedom the "end result" like I stated in my writings a few years ago? Or is it a feeling that we strive to have at all times? I know that Financial Freedom is a goal for many (including myself). What it would mean to me is to have enough money that would last me until I am way into my 100's and I would not "have to" work another day in my life. (Now, that doesn't mean that I would be doing "nothing") I would have a "financial cushion" (whether in bulk or constantly coming in from passive sources) that would always financially support me and free up my time to do whatever I want, when I want, how I want. Doesn't that sound nice? Well, I do believe it is possible for many of us to have this type of freedom. However our "mind set" and what we choose to do (and FEEL) now with our lives, makes all the difference in the world as to whether you or I will see the day when we could say that we are "financially free".

So, what would "being free" mean to you?
