All of us, at some point in time, have imagined ourselves achieving absolute freedom in our life. A latest viral video of a girl riding a horse at the beach with all her might towards the horizon has rejuvenated the dream of pursuing freedom in most of us
Pursuing freedom may seem like a never-ending journey. But it doesn’t have to be this way. It does not necessarily require you to escape society and always live on the edge of life to feel the adrenaline pumping.
Pursuing freedom can be easy just by finding fulfilment and happiness in your personal life. There are various ways to find happiness in your not-so-exciting life. Not having financial worries and being able to do something for a living you love can also mean freedom. Being surrounded by people you love and deeply care about can also bring fulfilment to your life.
Five ways you can pursue your precious freedom from this very moment:
Do not wait for the perfect time; live on your terms: Being able to live your life according to your own rules is absolute freedom. You don’t have to wait for the tide to turn on your side. You can start taking small, actionable steps now!
Create financial stability: Don’t make a habit of living paycheck to paycheck. Learn to save some for unforeseen circumstances, so you don’t have to depend on anyone. Start a side
Stop spending money on things you buy to impress others: Do not waste your hard-earned money to buy things you don’t need to impress people you don’t care about. Things you own unnecessarily and money you spend irresponsibly end up snatching your freedom daily.
Set your priorities right: Do not be the ‘yes man. Find out what your priorities are and stick to your plans. If achieving freedom is your dream, then this is the most important way of pursuing it.
Take care of yourself: Health is wealth. If you do not take care of your health in the process, then what is the use of all the freedom in the world? Take some time out of your daily life and exercise. You can start by going for a little run.
Be patient: last but not least, have a little patience. It won’t happen today. But it’ll surely happen one day.
