This journal entry appeared in my TimeHop app as one that was written one year ago today. It’s a short one but rings true.

I’ve been thinking about freedom. What does it mean to be free? Dictionaries speak to personal liberty as from slavery or bondage, without constraint. Here’s one that rings true for me, “able to choose between alternative actions in identical circumstances.”
Able to choose. Each of us has freedom to choose. Because I’m free I am no longer enslaved to drama or what other people think. I am free.
Call me crazy but I am in the best emotional and spiritual shape I’ve ever experienced in my life! Maybe it’s the carefully-dyed grey hair and wisdom that accompanies it.
But seriously, why would I want to live anywhere else but in freedom, love, and joy? Why would I CHOOSE anything else. What are you choosing today?
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. — Galatians 5:1
I’m forgiven and free.
