In the beginning of the year, I wrote a post called Chasing Happiness in 2022. This past March I wrote a post called Chasing Peace. Today I’m here to present Chasing Freedom. I’ve been wanting to write about this for the past few weeks. Last week I just had a lot on my mind, and it wasn’t the best time to speak on this, but today I want to finally speak on Chasing Freedom, and what it’s all about. Chasing Freedom is about my journey to Financial Freedom, Mental Freedom, and Physical Freedom. Let me explain, A few may know that I started this blog to basically record my journey to success after finishing college. I came across a lot of major roadblocks and setbacks along the way, but I’m still trucking along like the little engine that could. There were many times where I wanted to give up, but I still want to reach a point to where I’m consistently bringing in money from my own creations and innovations. That has always been the goal.
So what am I planning for part 3 of this journey?
Financial Freedom: I plan to experiment and test different theories and tips to see if I can accelerate my progress and get this show on the road. I want to focus on what works and what doesn’t. I feel like so much has been up in the air and I haven’t really begun to get to the root of this journey. I just been tossing things out and hoping that it lands. I need a better strategy and I need to pay close attention to detail. I briefly spoke on the type of experiments that I plan to begin in my post Hanging in the Balance, but I want to add that I really want to test out the quantity vs quality theory. I’ve been intrigued for a couple of years to see which one is the most beneficial. I want to focus on numbers and finally see if it plays a major role when it comes to being seen/noticed in crowded spaces. There are so many questions that I have that I can’t find anywhere, so I’m a little excited to test out some theories and see if I can find the key success.
Mental & Physical Freedom: I know that mental freedom kind of correlates with my Chasing Peace segment, but it’s somewhat different. Chasing Peace will be a little geared towards coping and quick fixes and tips, whereas in this segment I will speak more on resolving. As a person who suffers from major anxiety, depression, and PTSD (Yes, I’ve been diagnosed with all of them) I’ve let it all control so much of my life. I frequently stay in my head, and I want to get to a point where I’m not constantly fighting mental battles. EVERYTHING Feels like a BATTLE, and with adding grief on top of everything the changes in my body have been wild in the last 2 years. Which brings me to Physical Freedom. My body has been through a lot of changes lately. Things that I was able to do a couple years ago I can’t do now (or I have a hard time doing them). I have to keep over the counter meds on me, because there has been time when I was out, and I would be in so much pain I could barely walk. I feel so limited, and it takes a lot of fun out of certain activities. Since the pandemic I finally went on vacation a few months ago and I’ve never been so uncomfortable. It wasn’t as enjoyable as it used to be because I was in pain a lot. I tend to usually have back pain, but now I’m dealing with other things. with my stress and newfound overload of emotions from the past year I randomly deal with stress rashes, shakes (which are like ongoing chills whenever stressful situations pop up), and the scariest one …. a weakness in my legs. The leg issue doesn’t occur often. It’s very seldom, but when it does it’s really scary. I want to be healthy physically and mentally. I want to focus on improving and enjoying the things that I once enjoyed. I want to take my life back. This has definitely been the hardest time in my life with everything that’s been going on, and I’m realizing that I need to make a change.
I will give updates on my journey every Sunday moving forward starting on June 26th.
