Food for Thought, Freedom, Fulfillment


Thank God I’m FREE!

If happiness and fulfillment is the goal, then so is freedom. But living for the weekend means living for less than 29% of our days. What would it take to truly live at 100%?

In the spirit of acronyms, this is where the five Ws and the one H come into play – the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. But, in this case, I’ve learned that the Why comes first, as Simon Sinek brilliantly explains in his famous Ted Talk below:

After the Why, he discusses the How and the What, and this model may hold true for companies. But as people, we’re much deeper than three layers. As humans, we both want and need the freedom to be who we authentically are and with whom we love. We want to be able to do what we love, when it’s convenient for us, and where we’re most comfortable. We want to live happy and fulfilling lives however we envision that life should be.

People fight for our freedoms every day, so living life at full capacity day in and day out is a tribute to them. I’m so incredibly grateful for the opportunities that living in a free country provides. I’ve taken steps to live at 100% and am sharing these steps through what I’ve discovered I love doing – writing – whether in this blog, on social media, or in my books. So, let me re-phrase my earlier question, and I hope to help you answer it: What would it take for you to truly live at 100%?

Don’t forget to recognize and deliver love today! ❤ G
