Freedom: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom
What does Freedom mean to you?
Freedom to me
Freedom to me is to just be
To be able to witness every moment as it is.
Freedom to look fear in the eye
To catch the sunset and sunrise with a sigh.
To accept, what is
And to let go, what is not.
Freedom to make choices
And rejoice in them.
And to go slow.
Freedom to witness
Yet not carry forward the distress.
To give others a chance
And to surrender to life’s dance.
Freedom to me, is to just be.

Natasha, your photos are all so beautiful, but this one is stunning.
I’m working on an interview of Natalie the Explorer to publish on Friday. I decided to use lovely and supportive quotes from comments on her blog that I especially liked. Yours was one of them. Instead of linking to your blog home page, I wanted to pick an especially nice post to link to your comment, if that’s okay with you. If not, you can let me know. This is the quote I’m using in her post.
“These are genius, Natalie.
Thanks for sharing these precious gems with me on #WordlessWednesday and yes, a very welcome aboard #WW.
Look forward to witnessing more marvel unfold from your side in the coming weeks. No pressure though.
Have a fabulous, restful week ahead.”
I did not know about your challenge. If you are interested in doing an interview on my blog, let me know. Here is a link to my Interview Page if you are interested. https://tchistorygal.net/challenge-interview-series/
Seemed to have missed your post. So very sorry. That would have been wonderful. 🙂 Thanks for checking with me.
I allowed myself to borrow this photo and post it on my blog, here, https://povestiripescurt.blogspot.com/2021/02/de-la-altii-de-departe.html with the necessary link, of course.
Thank you very much!
I’m so thrilled to hear that. Love
What a spot and what a fantastic view! I’m guessing that is not a private house. What and where is it?

It’s a beautiful getaway in the Himalayan mountains in Uttarakhand, India called the Silent Trails.
Cocooned in the lap of pure, serene wilderness.
Thank you for stopping by.
I keep forgetting that #wordlesswednesday is no longer every week! :-/
Dear Chandra you can still link here with another post. The linky is open till the following Monday.
Thanks Athira, for reading and following NatashaMusing. 🙂
My pleasure Natasha
Very timely for me, as I just drove two days to spend some time by myself, no dog, no husband, just me for a couple weeks. It’s definitely freedom for me!
Wow! What I like doing the best. Going solo.
Thanks for swinging by Dawn.
I like your poem a lot as you have definitely described freedom.
It’s so great to see your link at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!

I’m so glad you like it Betty. Good to see you here too.
Beautiful, Natasha. May we all learn to truly be free and allow others to be the same. Hugs.
Totally so. It all comes with learning to letting go and aligned with the universes purpose for us.
Hugs back at you Cory.
Wonderful poem. I love the photo at the top.
Trent, that’s a beautiful place up the northern Himalayan mountains, called Silent trails where I witnessed this hopeful and stunning 2nd New Year sunrise, with much gratitude.
I wrote about Silent trails in my recent posts, and that is where we spotted the fox too!
What a nice post 🙂
Have a tanfastical safe weekend Natasha
stevebethere recently posted…Feline Friday – Sooo Tired
Thanks Steve! You too.
For me, freedom is the ability to feel, think and act, without being hindered by others and without disturbing anyone.
Have a fine day, Natasha!
True that is indeed a liberating place to be in.
And so essential for our peace and that of others. But sometimes not easy to accomplish, but try we must.
You too dear Zina. Lovely to see you here.
Great post, like always!
Freedom is the right to be different, to think different, is the absence of necessity – I don’t like the word „must”. 🙂
I wish you a wonderful day, dear Natasha! Big hug! ❤️
Oh yes! “Must”, “should” are words that can be dropped from our dictionary!
Wishing you a beautiful day too my gorgeous friend. ♥️ Hugs and happiness always!
Beautiful post, Natasha! The photos and the poem. I needed it on this chilly, chaotic morning.
I’m so glad to hear that this #WW post gave you some solace.
Hugs dear Chandra.
Loving your post as always, Natasha.
Freedom to me is an end to the lockdown. I have been trying to stay positive since March but these days, I feel like my patience is running out. Despite the vaccinations, covid numbers are surging everywhere. We’re having our second Movement Control Order (partial lockdown).
Praying for you and your Dada.

I hear you, but I guess all will fall in place in good time and when the time is right.
Till then let’s hold on to our precious ones tight.
Thanks for all your love and prayers.
Beautifully written Natasha. Freedom to me is ending the lockdown I’m having to endure. Living alone, I’ve not had a face to face meeting with a soul since before Christmas and there’s still no decision on when it will end. I don’t know what I’d do without my blog!
Keith’s Ramblings recently posted…A short story …
I hear you, I feel you Kieth. A few more months of patience I guess. And yes our blogs are our solace and sanctuary.
Lovely poem! I sent some sunshine your way in photos. Thanks for hosting!
Thanks dear Tina. ♥️
I agree with what you say. I also think that with freedom comes responsibility which a lot of people forget.
Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.
Patrick Weseman recently posted…Walking Around Vegas
You said it Patrick. Very important to remember that aspect too. Freedom not at the cost of hurting others. Freedom to be liberated yet free. Freedom to care. And freedom to know we are all connected. Every single being and speck in the universe.
I love a lot the ideas you shared with us.
Freedom is so important for our lives. And for each of us has a special meaning.
Probably all are true! 🙂 But indeed it’s a choice and if we don’t choose it, life could become
hopeless and said.
Thank you, dear Natasha, for this lovely post! Happy WW!
Thanks dear Suzana for always reading and motivating me with your kind words.
You said it. We all have our own interpretation of the word and we can allow each other to freedom to live the way they wish to, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone.
Love and hugs♥️
Beautiful shots and freedom to me is being able to do what I want to do as long as I don’t hurt someone else.
Freedom is being able to worship as I see fit. Freedom is choice, my choices not someone else’s.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday filled with freedom, Natasha. ♥
Sandee recently posted…Wordless Wednesday
Agree, “as long as I don’t hurt someone”
But sometimes freedom also comes at a cost. Of doing what we got to do. Even if people don’t approve of it. It may hurt their sentiments but we know that’s what’s good for us.
As long as it’s not drastically causing pain to others.
Yes, worship who we wish to, to choose our religion and spiritual path without being judged for it.
Freedom to me is also following the spiritual path and wishing people would relate to it. But then not everyone does. And that’s also freedom, of allowing them their views.
Thanks Sandee. Your messages always give me wings.
Loved your poetry, Natasha. 🙂
Freedom to me is to be able to fulfil my wishes for myself so that I know I am living the life I was meant to.
Wonderfully said Shilpa.
May you always live the life you are meant to, and chart your path with freedom.
Beautifully penned Natasha! Such pretty photographs…… Jilling, I guess
Freedom is simply ‘to be me’ and let life flow ‘as is’.
Hope you have a calm and blissful week ahead
Monika Ohson | TravelerInMe recently posted…Balcony Birding: Green Sandpiper
Yes, love the Silent Trails serene Sanctuary!
When I said Freedom to be, I did mean Freedom to be me!
Same pinch. Just left it for the readers interpretation.
And yes, let life flow as is and let ourselves also flow each day with the gratitude in our hearts knowing what’s coming our way is the best the universe is doing for us, with a higher plan in mind.
Thanks for your wishes, dear Monika. Love and hugs.♥️
