My Sunny Side: Freedom

I’ve decided to try a new feature in my blog: Sunny Side Up (I actually like over medium eggs lol) me trying to be my funny, sarcastic, positive, uplifting, grateful, off the wall self! I am going to show my positive side. My life is not all doom and gloom, And WovenEclipse helped me see that. So, thank you Rebecca!

Today has been bitterly cold.  Initially my thoughts had turned negative this morning.  And then I remembered when I looked out of the cage that was the “exercise” pen, and I ached to be free.  Now, I revel in that very freedom!

Nothing like being locked up like an animal to change your perspective on a myriad of things relating to freedom.  Today, I am grateful for the following freedoms now in my possession:

 1.  Freedom from the abusive relationship I was in–hallelujah!

2.  Freedom from alcohol and its disasters–living sober!

3.  Freedom of mind, body, soul–healing myself from the inside out.

4.  Freedom to come and go and do as I damn well please–well, mostly.

5.  Freedom from being a prisoner to “stuff”–cause I have nothing lol.

6.  Freedom from major depression and anxiety–all systems “go.”

Yes, dear readers, I am free in so many ways.  And, although I am starting life over basically from scratch, I am ecstatic that I get to have these experiences in my life today.

So, I’ll be happy to be in any kind of weather.  I appreciate the little things.  I am grateful for my life.  I am grateful for the friendships I am forming here.  It’s good to be King!

  • It’s lovely to appreciate the little things and I aim to do the same everyday.
    A wise man once said: if you wish to appreciate what you have, look at those who have less then you and that’s when real appreciation will form.

    Glad to read about your freedoms from many aspects of life.

    • Well look at me who has less lol

      • Bless you, when we don’t have as much as we use to, we always appreciate what’s gone.

        Thank you Rob, hope your situation improves.

        I am thankful everyday for having a roof over my head and I know where my next meal will come from. Sometimes I see many people and children who are victims of war torn countries or third world and are dying of starvation it stirs emotions but it encourages to give to help others who don’t have the luxuries we may have.

        I pray your situation gets better and you find a good place Rob.

        Just have hope and don’t despair and keep praying.

      • Means a lot and thank you for spending the time reading my stuff. You made my night

      • Aaww my pleasure Rob, I do try to drop by our blog when I eventually come online and it’s a pleasure reading your posts.

        Glad I have.
