We assume the rights of freedom and debate its boundaries in politics, yet how often do we take time to reflect on what freedom means to us personally?Verify my mortgage eligibility (Aug 15th, 2022)
Freedom is not a concept carved from stone; it is malleable and personal, always shifting shape depending on where you find yourself standing and the angle of the slanting light.
My personal definition of freedom is the ability to act based on my convictions without external restriction or retribution. It is the ability to represent myself as I see myself to be, not having to hide or disguise who I am in order to pursue happiness, fulfillment, and growth. It is the power of free self-expression. Personal freedom is one of my top three values.

Of course, there are boundaries to freedom. My actions should not hurt others or restrict their personal freedoms, and so this is the dance of conscience. Will, what I want to conflict with what others want or need? If so, how can I have the personal autonomy I need while respecting the freedom of those around me?
I believe there is always a path for mutual free expression when we respect one another. Today, as we prepare to celebrate Freedom Month, I offer the following quotes as food for thought and as writing prompts:
“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” ― William FaulknerVerify my mortgage eligibility (Aug 15th, 2022)
“True independence and freedom can only exist in doing what’s right.”
— Brigham Young
And I leave you with these questions: Which, if any, of these quotes resonate with you? What do you believe about freedom and how do you describe or define it for yourself?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Thomas JeffersonVerify my mortgage eligibility (Aug 15th, 2022)
Beautiful famous words. Those words really come to life for us when you consider the idea of owning real estate, especially your own HOME.
In the United States homeownership accounts for as much as two-thirds of the wealth of a typical household. The mortgage approval process, therefore, potentially represents a large stumbling block on the road to wealth and stability.
