When she walks by, she exudes confidence. When she speaks, her words convey infinite wisdom. When others mention her name, their voices carry admiration and respect. She is a lone-wolf, dancing to the beat of her own drum, never compromising truth for popularity.
Whatever she does, her efforts portray raw honesty and pure values. She is an enigma, a queen, an empress and holds in her hand the reins of her own life’s quest. With her inner strength she moves mountains, pushing beyond what others seem possible, driving positive change for herself, her loved ones and for an infinitely better world. And these are her habits.
1. They Believe Nothing
Free thinking women know how to tap into intuition to find their own truth. No matter where they have read something, or who said something, unless it agrees with their own reason and common sense, they won’t accept it as truth.
Their healthy skepticism makes them ferocious readers, tenacious researchers and bold debaters. They read in alignment with their opinions, and explore resources providing opposing views. They realize confrontations with new information that conflicts with their existing beliefs are painful. Yet they actively seek out opportunities to spar, discuss, debate to expand their knowledge. Through playing with alternative concepts and beliefs they grow their awareness and ability to form coherent, logical beliefs without getting lost in rigidity.
2. They travel
Highly intelligent women realize travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness and understand that true intelligence cannot be developed by vegetating in one little corner of the earth. While not all have resources to journey around the globe, free thinking women just make traveling a priority. They know that even a trip to a new place a day's drive away can be eye-opening. They are always on the lookout for soul stirring adventures.
3. They embrace change
As Goldie Hawn said: "You just keep growing, embracing change, being present with what is. We are the sum total of our life experiences—that's what builds us; that's who we become. If we don't do any personal research or any personality and psychic excavation, we really aren't growing—we're only just existing. It is then that we become reactive."
Free spirited women understand change is part of life and that change happens whether we’re ready or not. They accept that we cannot direct the wind, but that we can adjust the sails to get to where we want to go, even when faced with unforeseen circumstances.
4. They say ‘F#ck it’
When free thinking women feel out of synch with the natural world and feel stress kicking in, they dare to say out loud: “ F#ck it!’. They realize the secret to liberation from the cares of this world is a two-word curse that is a synonym for letting it all go, and accepting what 'is', instead of longing for what 'was' or what 'should be'. It helps them relax, tell the truth, do what makes them happy and accept everyone. The profanity helps them go with the flow, and live a more carefree life, in the knowledge that life is short and that time waits for no one.
5. They fall seven times and stand up eight.
Failure isn’t something many of us can handle gracefully, but free spirited women know how to compel themselves to persevere and move forward. When free spirited women feel the temptation to give up at the end of the day, they are not surprised it happens to them. They realize they are human, and that making mistakes is part of life, especially when exhaustion has taken its toll. They remind themselves a good night sleep cures many issues. They rest their eyes in the knowledge that courage doesn't always roar, but instead is sometimes the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow'.
6. They take the road less traveled
Free spirited woman pave their own paths in life. They don’t go along with what their peers are doing. Instead they boldly go where few have gone before, taking the risk of stepping off the beaten track. They know blazing a new trail makes all the difference between existing, and living life to the fullest. Free thinking women stir souls, push boundaries and challenge belief systems. They know some laws are meant to be broken in order to progress as a society.
Independent women drive change with sparkling eyes and dirty feet, emitting an unrelenting, contagious energy that energizes others to do the same. They understand that you start to live when you commit your life to the greater good, and no matter what happen they never, ever give up on your dreams.
