Something I’ve noticed about free spirits, is that they are very on their own. They live their lives independently and on their own terms.
They don’t need the presence or approval of other people to make them feel good. They don’t care about what other people think of them. 20 months ago
I’m sure everyone has had one time or another where they’ve wanted some time away from it all. Somewhere far from everyone and everything that embodies the modern world; deep in the woods or high in the mountains. To just sit in peace and quiet and nothing else.
So do I. More than the people around me in fact. But since I can’t (yet) be so secluded so often (or at all), I adjust myself to stay as close to nature as possible.
Stay close to yourself. Listen to your heart. Distance yourself from anything that is no good. 20 months ago
I’ve been using little intermissions every few months or so and I’m really enjoying them. I give myself a break from trying to socialize and forbid myself to turn on my phone or msn or to check facebook and my mailbox.
I take time for myself for however long I please. It frees so much time, you wouldn’t imagine! Suddenly goals get worked on or actually done and out of nowhere I’m actually spending time on myself! It makes me feel very independent.
I actually tried keeping to myself at school, but whenever I sit alone, people start surrounding me and max. 10 minutes later, I’m not sitting alone anymore. It’s really flattering, gheh. xd 21 months ago
Isn’t this something we all desire to be? I know I always have. To just do whatever I want, live on my terms, be adventurous and crazy and not care what anyone else in the entire world thinks.
It takes a lot of confidence, acceptance and a clear mind. I have to put my judgementalness and expectations back to point zero. But is there a difference between being innocent and being naive? Is there a line between acting upon a feeling you got purely from observing someone (objectively; facts) and acting upon a gut feeling you got from expectations and previous experience (subjectively)? When is something a fact?
It would take a lot of patience and knowledge. The pureness of an infant and the wisdom of an adult.
Think of people like Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim vs. The world) or Christopher McCandless (Into the wild) or Dharma Finklestein Montgomery (Dharma and Greg). Yes, they are from movies/tv, but aren’t they admirable? Who on here doesn’t applaud people that go their own way? Unique and open people with a mystery seeming to surround them. People that truly follow their heart and feelings and are in touch with themselves. That can see beauty in every little thing and see the good in other people, that care and love freely.
I’m sure you have/had some kind of image of a freespirited person in mind. Is that an expectation? I think everyone has their own expectations and fills in the defenition for themselves, positively or negatively. All I know is that I want to become it.
To me it’s living without regrets. 21 months ago
