I remember going through puberty and my mother telling me I didn’t have to shave my legs or wear a bra if I didn’t want to.She taught me that makeup, clothing and all other objects of vanity should be tools to make me happy, not anyone else.One day, we may be practicing Buddhism and the next day, we may be interested in Astrology.We take in all religion and spirituality, and we construct these beliefs into a single ideology that fits within our lives.We are always seeking ways to expand our minds, make ourselves better people and become one with the world.A free-spirited woman will never shun another person for thinking differently, and she loathes discrimination and hatred. A free-spirited woman doesn't need anyone to fulfill her.
A free-spirited woman, although unconventional, does everything with determination, heart and endless passion.It's easy for us to zone out and get trapped inside our brains.We are the people who constantly practice being in the moment because we struggle with it the most.I've seen this work when couples are younger, but it seems as if, once they grow older, they tend to see themselves heading in different paths in life.I have a good friend who is a brilliant artist, is successful, has had books published, and yet, his wife said he was too much of an idealist for her, even after enduring a 13 year relationship.Our friends snap fingers in front of our faces when we drift off mid-sentence. Our way of thinking is not a straight line, but rather a winding maze that we are trying to navigate. To the contrary, we're usually too busy being self-aware of our brains, body, emotions and actions to concentrate on our immediate surroundings.Sometimes the real world is far too harsh for free spirits. We absorb others' pain, pleasure, anxiety, contentedness, fear and courage.We wear makeup, dye our hair and do or do not shave our armpits because we want to.Our beauty is found within, and it radiates from our very cores into the world around us.We are the women you find dancing at festivals without shirts, jumping off cliffs into clear blue water, quitting our jobs to travel the world or even just playing hooky for the day just to spend more time in the sunshine. A free spirit will find beauty in the ugliest of situations.She can see through the rain clouds to the rainbow before anyone else in her life.
