My calendar is blank. Except for my yoga classes. And a coaching session now and then which I love doing. I can choose what to do each day. Maybe explore a new beach. Maybe just stay home by the pool. I am on a Sabbatical in Koh Samui Thailand. Some would say I am free.
That would be accurate except for the fact that I cannot do any activity uninterrupted for more than 1.5 hours. I have not been able to sleep in for years. I have not gone out in the evening for months. I have a baby and a toddler.
We all give up part of our freedom. Some for money. Some for security. Some for love. Unless you are in prison, your invisible cage is self-imposed. The question is: Are you happy in your cage?
