Freedom – what does it mean?

Freedom means different things to different people. Some people want to be free from slavery while others want to be enslaved and told what to do and when to do it. When I say enslaved, I mean to have someone do everything for them. They would much rather have someone run their daily lives then to venture out and fight for their individual freedoms.

I believe that people like that are brainwashed into believing that they are better off having someone give them everything they need on a daily basis instead of going out and getting it themselves. These people are like sheep. They just go follow along with whatever the higher ups tell them and believe that it is in their best interest.

That is not Freedom to me. I believe in the freedom to go where I want and when I want. To be able to travel, to have a roof over my head, that I bought and paid for. I believe in having a job that gives me an income to be able to put food on my table and clothes on my back. I also believe that I should have the Freedom to be an entrepreneur. To create my own income through a product I sell or a service I supply.


It also means the ability to complete me. Doing what I love makes me feel in control.

Freedom to be doing a job that I love. Not because I have to, but because I love doing it.

I am grateful to be free to make my own choices as a woman in America. I am grateful for my freedom.

Freedom means to take full advantage of the power of choice. You cannot do that in a socialist country, only in a sovereign country. It is the power in having the ability to try new things, experiment and to go down different paths and having the opportunity to chose which path to take.

Freedom also means that living in a country where regardless of where you’re from or what your background is, if you have the desire to work hard enough, anything is possible.

That taste of freedom is so sweet because my husbands family came from another country where freedom was not so readily available. They came in through Ellis Island. They had to be healthy, ready to work, learn the English language and assimilate into our society. In other words, they wanted to become an American Citizine. To become free is a privilege. And it is beautiful.

Freedom is being able to choose the path I want in life, business or relationships, and not being told it is wrong or impossible.

To me all of the above is the meaning of Freedom. Now let me telling you what Independence means to me.


Independence is all about taking control of your future. It means to decide who you are now and who you want to be in the future. It is all about taking control of your destiny.

This all comes back to you determination. It is about your drive to control your life’s choices I cannot control other people, but I can control my choices.

I can say or do whatever I want without being worried that I will get unnecessary judgment from others. I can be true to myself and not be afraid to show my unique or quirky side.

And finally, it is just the ability to have an independent thought. I think a lot of people take that for granted. We can choose the things we want to believe, and nobody can take that from you.

To finish this all up is that I am happy that I can still have the opportunity to create hairstyles at my age of 74. But also to be able to start and operate a homebased business part-time. I meet incredible people both styling hair and from the comfort of my home.

I pray that you have the wisdom to know that if you live in the states, you have the Freedom to do anything you want and to be anyone you want to be. Just put your nose to the grind stone and get to work. Follow your dream and don’t every let anyone take that away from you.

I believe in you.
