If only we knew...

There have been many years of my life and many situations in my life in which I didn't realize I was a slave and that freedom was an option for me. There have also been times in which I was addicted to something or someone, when I was voluntarily imprisoned by some vice or belief system - and even though I knew freedom was an option, I chose enslavement over liberty.

I am glad and grateful that my eyes, ears, and heart are being opened more and more so that I can see the chains, remove them, and step out into my best life.

Reminds me of that famous quote by Nova Knutson: "Hint: the cage is not locked."

like peace,
like joy,
like contentment,
like forgiveness,
is both a gift and a choice.

Thanks be to God.
