This is the weekend we are celebrating freedom in the United States. To ignore our country’s current struggles on this holiday working feels unauthentic – so instead, I invite you to consider how you recognize freedom in your everyday life before making something inspired by freedom.
Use creativity to explore how you have or would like to experience freedom
Open a new document or get our your journal and begin with the sentence starters in the image. Write for at least five minutes freely, stream-of-consciousness style. You may want to get your juices flowing by beginning with a comment below before you leave.
- Freedom feels like
- Freedom is….
- Freedom tastes like
- Freedom looks like
- I know freedom when….
- I am grateful for freedom because…
- I would describe freedom to an alien by saying….
- Freedom sounds like
- Freedom smells like
