Feminist Mantra Monday 41: Seek Freedom
I spent this weekend with two women I've come to call my "soul-friends," and in our hours of conversation we kept circling back to the theme of freedom and how we're each so actively yet so differently cultivating it in our lives right now.
Freedom is certainly an important political right to claim and reality to fight for this year. That work is important. But this week, also try meditating on what it means to you to *feel* free in your daily life and your relationships. What does freedom feel like in your gut? your heart? What conditions have to be true for you to feel free?
Be gentle yet firm with yourself in this exploration. What stands out as non-negotiable? What support can you find from others and what work do you need to do? How can you seek and cultivate freedom in your life? And assist others in their search?
Let me know what answers you find.
