Freedom

As I study and reflect on much of my journey and the graces that brought me from darkness to light, from seeming dead endings to new beginnings, I realize more and more that even in the best of circumstances, surrounded by the most supportive people, in the end, we must free ourselves. In order to be the best advocate I can be for the freedom and liberation of others, I must come from the most widespread and sturdy foundation of grace and peace. 
We must free ourselves from our;
judgments,
limitations,
regrets,
patterns,
habits,
assumptions,
thoughts,
wounds,
resentments,
fears,
expectations,
and shame.

The more of these we release,
the more space we make for grace and peace.
