Red Heels and Freedom

My Hubby and I had the VERY BEST DATE NIGHT EVER  last Saturday night.


We went to see WICKED.  I cannot begin to explain how much I've been wanting to see this show

and how long I've waited.

We got all spruced up and headed out.  Suit and tie for him, LBD (little black dress) for me.

Granted we were in our minivan, but still a night out on the town.

It was SPECTACULAR!  Hubby had gotten us fabulous seats and the actors did an amazing job.

It is a night that will stick with us for a long time.

Along with my LBD, I also bought some gorgeous red heels.

Now, you have to understand, I haven't worn in heels in a very long time.

I've felt like I was to fat,  knees hurt to much, heel might break under my weight.  Which basically all comes down to fear. Fear of embarrassment, fear of facing the truth about my weight.

So, listen I know it's silly. It's superficial.  It's maybe even vain. . .I'm not sure?? 

But, I do know that these gorgeous red heels are an outward symbol of the freedom I now feel.

Freedom is a beautiful thing.

Not everyone needs freedom from weight like I did, but everyone needs freedom from something.

Can I encourage you?

 Fight for it!

Fight for your freedom!

Freedom from addiction, from fear, from anxiety, from anger, from pornography, from greed.

Wherever your struggle lies, fight for your freedom.

No one or no thing is going to hand it to you. It is a battle and fight it you and I must.

Break the chains, the cycles that leave you where you are and leave you tied down and unable to move.

I'm still fighting for my freedom, and maybe always will be this side of heaven. But, I do know this. .. 

It is worth the fight.  I am worth the fight.I am a Daughter of the King.

You are worth the fight. Owning that is half the battle.

 I was not  meant to live enslaved in bondage-even if that bondage was 

of my own making. And neither are you.

Let's kick up our red heels and fight for our freedom!

Fighting with you,
