The Freedom Journey
Lessons learned from my journey to freedom. — Love, Stephanie
Harriet Tubman is my inspiration. She freed herself and then went back to the South to liberate her family, friends, and others. Before departing the South, she told every runaway slave that they must agree to keep going, no matter how difficult the circumstances, until they reached freedom.
Your body is a tremendous asset because it will always alert you if you’re not staying true. Your body is your built-in GPS, providing continuous, real-time guidance. At any point in time, your body will let you know if you’re on the right track or if you’re going down the wrong path.
Behavioral change is VERY hard. It’s hard because it takes immense desire, discipline and determination. You’ve got to really want to change. You’ve got to work diligently at it. You have to keep trying when the zest for change has lost its zeal. The struggle is real.
To live free, you must focus on 7 BEhaviors every day – no matter where you are, what you’re doing, or who you’re with. Under all situations and circumstances, you must be oBEdient. If you are consistent, these 7 BEhaviors will liberate your mind, body, and spirit.
The first crucial step toward freedom is to decide that you are ready to be free. It’s like going out to dinner at a restaurant. There are always a lot of delectable items on the menu—appetizers, salads, entreés, specials, drinks, and desserts. A lot of items may be appetizing to you, but when the waiter arrives to take your order you have to choose.
