Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

Free Spirit: Someone acting freely or even irresponsibly

The interpretation for free spirit is so wide and loose, I suppose each of us could shape this challenge however we’d like. I would like to think that I’m a bit of a free spirit (in a responsible way).

I love being spontaneous ~ I’m always up for an adventure on a moments notice. I’m not really afraid to try anything ~ although I am still trying to get my courage up to sky dive. I’m a good Christian but not afraid of death. I pride myself on being open-minded and accepting of most people and situations. I’m a little bit bohemian and a little bit Tiffany’s. In the midst of my forties, I somehow managed to convince my husband that we should quit our jobs and sell our house without knowing where we were going to land. A year later, we ironically ended up landing one mile from our old house and went back to our old jobs (see what I mean about the responsible part :)).

I have started my own businesses ~ and when I tire of them, I move on. I don’t like being stuck in a rut ~ I need to feed my soul, it’s what keeps me happy. I sing and sway to the music in my car, at the grocery store or in the mall ~ I don’t really care who is watching. And yes, I am that chick in the cowboy hat at the resort pool with my head phones on, sipping my drink (most likely a margarita) without a care in the world at that moment in time….that’s how I define my free spirit. Hence my title tag: Living life serendipitously one day at a time.

  1. and how free spirited it sounds… love the idea you sold up and a year later back to scratch again… I’m in my sixties and have thrown up the towel and have gone out on a limb, that a computer program I developed, now being encoded will be the future income for the rest of my life or for that matter put me in a position to retire and take photos for the rest of my life… but then I consider that my free spirit or an idiotic move, but it’s worth the risk with the interest we are getting world wide… enjoy your day…

    • I LOVE that Rob! It’s always hard to know whether what you’re doing at the time is a healthy risk or an idiotic move but I believe you have to try. For us, when we took the risk we had no idea that 911 was about to happen causing the eventual dot.com crash. We sold our house at the top of the market prior to all of this happening and within a year prices plummeted to all time lows when we repurchased. We couldn’t have planned that if we wanted to, but we wouldn’t have benefited from it either if we didn’t take the risk. Good luck to you, I hope your fortune awaits you.
