Free Spirit

I have fallen in love with the imagination. And if you fall in love with the, imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything.
Alice Walker

One of the danger zones when you begin to take flight in creative skies is the feeling of being shackled to the earth by your current job. I have worked  for a company for many years that was fluid in its approach and allowed some creativity in how it let employees define their jobs, but that is changing....

Ironically after I began this post there was a work issue that happened. Without going into a good deal of detail I realized that I would have to take steps to simplify as much of work as I can and to follow what my spirit says I need to do to be more free. That is instead of the insane extra work and responsibilities I've taken on, to reduce to a sane level. It won't be a popular decision. I know once I unlock the shackles and take them off, there will be those trying to slip them on and lock them back up.

I see my sisters also trying to keep their free spirits and pursue their growth and dreams. So this is dedicated to them also, forever may our spirits be free.
