Happy belated Independence Day! Just because the 4th has come and gone doesn't mean we can stop thinking about freedom. Freedom from what, though? From whom? Some might say that freedom is being able to do whatever you want, whenever you want. Others might say like it’s being able to live however one chooses, without judgement or forced restrictions from others. Some might say freedom is mental; an attitude – having inner peace no matter what the external circumstances are. In some parts of the world it still might mean the simple right to vote. Whatever freedom means to you, I doubt any of it would ever come to fruition without discipline AND compassion. Discipline? Discipline means rules, restrictions and having no fun, right? Sometimes. However, when we incorporate self-compassion with discipline into our lives, we can create practices (that eventually become habits) that are the vehicles to the freedom we desire. Think about it.
