I am Jody and IAM4FREEDOM! I've never felt more free than I'm feeling right now. To get so much love and positive feedback for just being yourself is kind of crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I would recommend it to anyone. I am a transgender girl and I am very proud of that. In this world it's not easy to be different, especially when it isn't a choice to be different but it's just how you're born. This is who I am and I've learned to be proud of myself.
To me freedom is the ability to negotiate with my demons. Or at least to entertain diplomatic relations with them.
People move, doors can be opened, walls can be climbed and the world is not that big after all. But whatever freedom I found outside has always been vain as long as I have been fighting my own demons. So now we try to compromise and get along.
Real freedom is freedom from anger, hatred, ill will, animosity....and as they all are generated by ego, so the freedom from Ego ;-)
Freedom for me represents the possibility to be your self, to love who you want, to meet people and make friendships all over the world without any kind of borders. No colors, No religions, No sexual diversity...we are all Humans...my personal freedom picture shows me (to the left) before and (to the right) after my transition, talking about freedom and the right to be yourself!
For me freedom has everything to do with the energy I feel. I have lived a beautiful life, although with a lot of responsibilities and shoulds. Do you too recognize that your to-do-list grows and you have not enough time? Life isn't about facts and figures, but about fears and feelings.
I few years ago, I decided to live in harmony: what I think, feel, do and say are at one line. Easier said than done. But I feel less resistance and enjoy my life. Living effortless in abundance and being who I am, not what others expect me to be. It has been struggle, but I am finally free to live my life in harmony. Energy doesn't lie …
I am Joseph and IAM4FREEDOM! Freedom can mean so many things, it can be both a physical and mental state and some of us are more free than others, so it's hard to say what FREEDOM means to me. All I know is that I feel free when I know I can just be myself and enjoy the good things in life from the smallest to the biggest moments. I feel most free when I dance.
Freedom is created by listening, tolerance, closeness, curiosity and non- judgmental behavior. It requires a fairer distribution of wealth. Poverty creates slavery. Freedom of mind and speech is something we all have. No one can stop us to think and talk. Freedom of traveling where you want to go. Who to love. Here it gets already harder. Let us remember: Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood. These are connected. If we are not equal, then one will have more freedom then the other. And this gets worse in time… We want Brotherhood, but if we don’t feel freedom, don’t feel equal, we will hesitate to really connect. Afraid of the consequences. Freedom is free of fear.
Freedom for me is being able to express yourself, in your beliefs, sexuality, work, friendships in such a way you treat others as you like to be treated, all are equally respected. Do as you feel like creating a circle of loving people around you, based on empathy and understanding all expressing whats alive?
If you are reading this it means you live in a country where freedom is given for granted. Sometimes we forget that freedom is a precious right, be thankful and never forget it!
Freedom is not having to live according to the standard..
That it’s ok to step outside the lines. Or stay within if I want to.
Freedom is dressing up sexy when I feel like it. Without disapproving or dirty looks from others.
Freedom for me is the right to choose what I do, where, when and with whom and that others have that exact same right.
Freedom is being respected. And giving back even if it’s not necessarily my savoir vivre.
Freedom is living in a society free of religious dogma’s and imposed religious laws.
Freedom is stepping under a waterfall when you see one.
If people would stop comparing themselves to others, they would become more free and tolerant, wishing the same to others. As long as people that are free thinkers are not tolerated by others, we will need to defend freedom.

I tend to behave in line with my feelings and thoughts, regardless to the behavioural codes of others. This means freedom to me. Artists have these codes too. Codes may make me feel uncomfortable and therefore unfree but at the same time I am happy to be an autonomous outsider, if this occurs. I won't adapt and loose my freedom.
My close friends are Epicurists. In their company I feel free because they are also. I am a painter but they are artists too. They are life artists ??
Freedom is making my own choices, that I can do work that fits me and what my passion is, and that I can figure my own time out. That way I can take time for my clients who need help. I don’t have to send them away because our time is over. I think they deserve my time so they feel well again. It gives my energy to see them grow. I feel free because I have my own business nobody tells me what to do. Freedom is also the holiday with my family at the camping in Italy. Not looking at the clock, no tv, barely any wifi and eat when your body tells you you are hungry. Back to basic.
Finally, I am free! Free from feeling bad and naughty. Free from the feeling of not being good enough, important and always being the one to blame. For over 60 years, I have carried this burden, yes 60 years! And now it is over. I am free! Free from the opinions of others. I can be who I want to be, the one who doesn't fit the frame, who is left-handed, intuitive, spiritual, smart, handy, beautiful, nice and pleasant. Lovely!
Freedom for me.. is to following the heart..
Freedom then would be something like choice..
Freedom of choice.. and being able to bear all the consequences.
Freedom is something like 'to travel or not to travel'..
That’s the question..Which path.. Choose the one less travelled! Always! Were there are no roads to be found yet.. you are first..
Freedom is catching moments by surprise!
Freedom for me is like meeting a friend at a bar, unexpected in a place you both normally do not visit.. and after a few beer deciding to travel India together.. for months.. Goa before the hit, swimming with dolphins and join BBC during a two week jungle tour..
Freedom = Health = Wealth = Traveling alone
We are not aware when healthy, wealthy, without pain..
That’s a good thing.. and it would brighten someones day if you should realize.. That the only difference between a good or a bad day is someone being kind, without even understanding is nice...
Ahoy……….
Freedom……..the right to go where you want to go
To express what you want to express
Think and say what you want to think and say
Play and share music in a dancing boat for more than 25 years everywhere in the Netherlands and Amsterdam both famous for freedom
Realize you are able to celebrate freedom every day again: Thanks to the people that sacrificed their lives for our freedom
Safe journey…… to everybody enjoying freedom
I am Anita Coljee and IAM4FREEDOM!
In full freedom being able to…
Express your opinion and respecting the opinion of others.
Make your own choices and mistakes and learn from them.
Love someone and express this.
Go wherever you want to go and discover the world.
Enjoy the company and love of family, friends and people around me.
Listen to your favourite music and feel free to dance on it.
Laugh, dance and jump for joy!

Just be yourself and have respect for each other!
Freedom to me means being who you want to be. Not being told who or what you have to be.....Be mad, be sad. scream, yell, love, be loved and forever be (and love) yourself.
Freedom is to have the guts to trust myself on my path as a goldsmith, musician, husband, employee or father in my own way. To take the risk to be me is sometimes scary but satisfying and free when it is working. At this moment, my being free lesson is trust in my path as a goldsmith and trust what I do which is really different but I believe I will find the people who want to support my art.
As a child, I already had a very deep longing for freedom. Just four years old, when I was send to school, I would run away from school every single day until I was forced to stay.
The strong longing for freedom has been shaping my life until today, as I live in my own build house on squatted ground, where I don't have to pay expensive rent, where I can make a bonfire in the garden and build some nice structure in the garden, if I feel like it. I work as a freelance yoga teacher and when I want to travel I can. Recently, I came across the term location independent. My next goal is to be able to do my work all over the world so I will truly become location independent!??
Freedom is being you, being the best and worse you could possibly be.
Freedom is seeing the glass half full when circumstances says otherwise.
Freedom is being your own boss
Freedom is having the ability to live
Freedom is being able to fly without wings
Freedom is happiness, Love, peace.
Freedom is ME
