Getting to grips with life beyond work is a life heading for freedom. But that got me thinking about what it is?
Freedom is relative. One thing to someone and another to someone else. Someone needs the freedom of the mind, freedom from family life, freedom from work or freedom from sickness. You can mean many things with freedom.
I don’t believe in absolute freedom. Everyone is limited by something. It could be moral, social pressure, physical abilities, mental abilities, age, gender etc.
Perhaps freedom is the state of being when you are aware of your own limits and embraces them. Just like a lamb who is in terms with the shepherd, knows where the fences are but works inside it’s own territory in contempt.
That could be my goal.
