After a week full with work and commitments, there is nothing better than to have that feeling of freedom that comes with Friday!
But true freedom does not depend on which day of the week it is. It does not depend on where you live or who you live with.
True freedom comes from having peace of mind and peace in the heart. True freedom comes from being true to yourself and admiting to the truth inside of you.
A while back we used to work together for someone else, but the people working with us didn´t think it was OK for us to work together. They made our work life very difficult and it spilt over into our private lives. We nearly lost each other. As we drifted away I wanted to tell her everything that was in my heart:
“The first time we kissed I felt the time going really fast, I felt I had the whole world in my hand, I felt so happy, I felt we were the only two people in the world.
I remember when we walked by the river, I looked at you, how you moved, how you talked, I felt I wanted to hide you inside my heart and not let anyone see you, to keep you safe from the whole world. I wanted those moments to never go away.
We have known each other for 3 years and my love for my wife grows more and more everyday.
What words do I need to say to you? my sweet girl or my queen?. Even when you get up in the morning and you leave to go to your job, I feel really scared for you, but I try to hide it inside myself, so that I don´t show my worry for you. But you are my Queen, the love of my life, my inspiration and my best friend.
I want us to do the things you like and make you happy but time slips away and takes me from you for a little bit because I think so much about how to build a better life. And then I see that we have already a better life because we have each other.”
I still feel the same way about her…
If you work with your husband or wife, keep work life and home life apart. Write a schedule where work times and home life times are clearly defined. Build barriers that nobody is allowed to cross over and above all protect your relationship.
There are many jobs out there and every worker could be easily replaced but you can not replace the person that loves you and cares for you, the one that travels through this life by your side.
Life takes you through many roads and sometimes people try to lead you down a road you should never take.
Value yourself and your relationship.
Don´t let yourself be limited, conditioned and influenced by the expectations of people around you who try to push on you their personal views on your private life.
We have defeated the meath. We have now worked together on writing our books for over a year and are working together on this Blog. We do it without allowing outside influence into our private world. We have peace inside our work life, home life and inside our hearts.
Wishing you Friday Freedom and peace in your heart.
