As a coach, I spend a fair amount of time helping people figure out which action or choice feels more expansive, feels more freeing, to them.

I have a new definition of freedom. (I’m not talking about political freedom here, I’m talking about existential freedom. Although I would argue they are related.)

Freedom is knowing that your desired feeling states are not contigent on everything going well and being under control. It’s taking the 10,000 foot view.

Peace, calm, happiness, joy, satisfaction are all available to you even if everything is not under control, even if bad things happen, even if you are sad or lonely or confused as fuck.  

Freedom is feeling that you are fundamentally okay regardless. 

So, what you can do to cultivate more freedom like that in your life?

And what happens when you act from that place of freedom?
