Feelin’ free…

This morning, I woke up feeling free. Not the kind of free you feel when you get to sleep in, or the kind of free you feel when you knock out your to-do list. I felt the kind of free when you feel like you can finally breathe. The feeling you get when you hear song lyrics and you think “holy crap! this song was written for me!” The feeling of clarity. Like, I just get it now. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but it feels fabulous. I feel fabulous.

These past few days have been a crazy roller coaster, in a good way. I am overwhelmed by all of the support and emails and tweets and comments. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You know who you are. I am in love with the human spirit. I am in love with life today. And no matter what anyone says I should be doing or what direction I should be going, I plan on doing it my way. Because I feel free.

Oh, and if you wanted a visual of what I feel like today, I’d liken it to this photo I took of my dear friend Allison Richter recently. It’s so filled with life.
