114: Celebrating Our Freedom with Alexandra Harbushka
Happy Fourth of July, it is our Nations Birthday. On today’s episode, we celebrate Freedom. We celebrate the freedom to become who you want to become and what you want to do.
In my opinion, the Fourth of July is not about corn on the cob, a hot dog and getting the right spot at the beach. It is about our country birthday. Don’t get me wrong…I am pretty excited about the corn on the cob and the firework display. But it is ultimately about freedom.
I want to thank you to the men and women who have served and will serve to keep us free. Thank you to the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in a Free country. THANK YOU.
As we talk about Freedom the questing might dawn on you, what does it mean to be free? How do I become Free? Am I free?
The answer. It starts with self-love. It requires trust, just doing it and knowing that you can do it. There is no task too big or too small, everything starts with the first step. Acknowledging what you want to be free from. Acknowledging what you want to accomplish. But most importantly acknowledging
Ask yourself, what is something you want to become free from? Maybe it is guilt. Maybe it is smoking, maybe it is alcohol, maybe it is a toxic relationship, maybe it is your job, Maybe it is your girlfriend, boyfriend, lover. Maybe it has something to do with Sex, Money or Food. It could be a paycheck or it could be to be free from yo-yo dieting. You funnel that down and it all begins with self-love and knowing your self-worth.
Are you wondering what I am free from? Well, It is liberating to release my secret. My secret of having genital herpes is out. It has been liberating to release the Life With Herpes Podcast and know that I am helping men and women all over the world. It is liberating to know that I can be transparent. Was it hard? Yep! Was it scary? Absolutely. Was I worried about judgment, of course. But was it worth it, YES.
This week, what is one thing you can make a choice to be free from. Become independent? In celebrating our Nations Birthday be the Pursuit of Life Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
See you next week.
