Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

In the sphere of free spirit reflections, what comes to mind are the words written by Jeremy Aldana:

free spirit sphere, reflections, passion, photograph

“A man’s spirit is free, but his pride binds him with chains of suffocation in a prison of his own insecurities.”

Living in a prison full of insecurities can keep us locked away from experiencing the passion that is within our daily lives. Like fragile soap bubbles floating randomly in the air, if we fail to work out our insecurities, our passion in our outlook on life may burst and vanish quickly before our eyes.

If we are insecure about aging, we may miss the passion to give a whirl at new projects…so what if we are approaching the golden centenarian mark, go for that college degree dream, or whatever dreams you hold within in you that are screaming, “DREAM HERE NOW!”

If we are insecure about our physical looks, we may miss the passion to enjoy who we really are; miss being content with our own bodies without Botox and boob jobs, simply accepting the masterpiece uniquely created by the Master creator and tagged, YOU.

If we are insecure about artistic talent, we may miss the passion to let go and just create!


Therefore, will we allow our insecurities to inhibit the free spirit within us?

Are we brave enough to break down the prison walls, kick out all the insecurities that chain us to mediocrity and for the last time, bury the nebbish human beings we once were becoming and bring on the exhilarated free spirit within us?


If you are looking for a fun weekly challenge, why not break out of the routine and join the Weekly Photo Challenge: This week’s theme is Free Spirit.

    Everyone should read this post. It is a secret to finding a happy, well lived life without regrets. Insecurities do hold us back and will keep our free spirit imprisoned. It’s time to fight back and break free. The world will bombard us we anything that will keep us questioning about ourselves but the world does not make our decisions, we do. Great post my friend . Best wishes.

    Sunshine….what a great interpretation for the theme! Excellent for thinking and pondering about oneself. Being insecure can hold us back from many things…
    We need to feel good about ourselves before we can ‘fly’~ and ‘try’ new things…as you said. Awesome post and excellent read for all. Thanks for the ping!
