I feel like the Statue of Liberty in this spiked headband. Albeit a One Teaspoon-clad-crop-topped-hipster-triangle-wearing-1990's version of her. It got me thinking about freedom and liberty and I found myself asking the question:

HOW DO YOU DEFINE FREEDOM? 

For some it would be a day without war - others, a day at the beach. Some want to be outside of prison walls and others want to escape the walls they've put up. A simple chance to speak your mind and be heard is a freedom most of us have but would you consider yourself free? I just read a quote of Joan Collins' in this month's Frankie...

"Show me a person who has never made a mistake, and I'll show you a person who has never achieved much"  

I think at this moment, my own greatest freedom is allowing myself to make mistakes and not caring, not stopping and not worrying. To judge yourself (or others) on mistakes of the past will only keep you trapped.It's so much more fun to be able to look back and laugh at yourself than to look back in disappointment.

So let yourself go and be free :)
