Freeindependence – my word for doing what I love, the way I want to, when I want to and how I want to!
In between a conversation with A about life’s current happenings, I mentioned to her about my approaching wedding anniversary next week. It doesn’t really matter now. For one, I am not married to him anymore. For two, its not really a day for celebrating what was once supposed to be the most pious relationship I would ever have with anyone. But its complicated because legally, it is still my wedding anniversary.
Me to A – “Everything is super cool babe, between saving animals and learning to live this new life, I love it all. Except, next week is my wedding anniversary.”
A to Me – “No no no, next week is nothing! Only Independence Day! Always remember that!”
It is sort of weird. I never did give that enough thought until last evening. Next week is Independence Day for my beloved country India. She and myself, we have one thing in common – We are truly free!
I have been thinking about this new found freedom. And how it rolls into an entire fresh perception about everything around you. How this new found eagerness to dance like a butterfly above the recently found green pastures matters so much and how it feels like someone just replaced your old heart with a brand new one.
Independence, Freedom, autonomy, lack of restrictions, self-determination,choice, free will, sovereignty – these words are life to me now!
Hey you, once upon a time lover, friend, husband Thank you! For setting me free!
Happy Freeindependence Day!
