The One true way to ‘Set yourself Free’


Fellow Life Lover.

How do you Inspire yourself?

Or do you lack inspiration right now?

Would feeling “Free” be an inspiring theme for you?

The title of this post “to set yourself Free”  has been characterised in many, many articles over time. However, today I will show you the only real spark that will  set your personal freedom into motion.

And I’m talking about the freedom to express yourself truly. The way that it’s meant to be for You.

Shadow, cardboard cut out, imitation, restricted, stuck … these are words that you don’t want associated with yourself.

Genuine, free spirited, achiever, giver, vibrant, sharer, carer …. these are words that you should be proud to have attached to your name.

Self Expression is the ultimate ‘freedom’ in my opinion.One True way Blog Post

Being able to express yourself in the following ways, like


artistically wise





are freedoms to be cherished.

And the ‘spark’ for all of this? … You of course.

You are the only one who can initiate the change from restriction to freedom. Deep inside you is the desire to be free.

After childhood it can get hidden, stuck under layers of old rules, day in day out sameness, general stuckiness , one channel thinking and good old fashioned tunnel vision.

And after 30 years or so of this, isn’t that reason enough to want to set yourself Free? Do you have that spark in you to do this?

You owe it to yourself at the very least. The flow on effects however, to those near & dear to you will be massive.

Is  it practical to suggest that ‘desire’ is your get out of gaol [jail for my American friends] free card here? Yes, I believe that it is.

I don’t see it as a ‘stretch’ at all, that you can simply set in motion, your move toward Freedom by having a strong desire to do so.

It may have lain dormant for quite a while and needs to be sparked into action by you or something that compels you. However it is real.

Taking the next steps may seem daunting, however if you have the desire, you will find there is help at hand.

You are the “Spark” .  Light the Fire. Go on do it!

And then let your Imagination explode by being able to express yourself the way that you are meant to.

New paths, fresh horizons, old scenarios refreshed with a new attitude and vibrancy!

Self Expression and Freedom. These two words that are meant to be together.

And add “desire” to make the perfect partnership.

    I really like the idea that desire has to be present in order to find your “freedom.” If you have no “real” desire, you will have a difficult time feeling free and expressing yourself. Bottom line, it’s hard to be “happy” and feel fulfilled when you aren’t living with that deep desire to get what you want. Nicely done.

    Super post David. I totally agree that desire is the spark or the fuel that leads us towards experiencing an ever expanding us.

    “You are the only one who can initiate the change from restriction to freedom. Deep inside you is the desire to be free” a hearty yes to this my friend.
