Let me tell you what freedom looks like.

It is when the sun rises and its ray comes through the blinds of your room, and you greet the world good morning.

It is when you dance while drinking your coffee fix and sing through cooking your usual breakfast that you didn’t realize sooner you already burnt.

It is when you daydream in the shower and practice the lines you plan to drop with your office crush.

It is when the train you ride every day to work stops midway, but it doesn’t affect your mood the entire day.

It is when the cafeteria releases the lunch menu with your least favorite dish on it, but you still happily chew all ingredients it contains.

It is when you go home with a smile on your face despite the exhaustion.

It is when the springs on your bed start to appear, and they hurt your back but you have a good night’s sleep somehow.

Freedom looks like everything around you goes well, but it doesn’t. You enjoy your day anyway, because you know that you are indeed free—free from worry, free from heebie jeebies, free from the burden you used to carry every single moment of every damn day.
