Shaking off the shackles of the past and looking towards the freedom of the future, a bloom of possibilities were before her, which could grow into opportunities and she could smell the fragrance of hope. Relief overcame her when she realised she had no worries, she didn’t have to worry about the rent, the bills, the car or the store credit cards because she was leaving. Going as far away as possible to a place where her credit rating really didn’t matter and her fixed address was a long road that spanned countries and continents. Now she was going, she wasn’t entirely sure why she had spent so many years building a standard life of constant compromises and caring about things that no longer seem to matter. Freedom comes with consequences although, what they are I’m sure I do not know, as Oscar Wilde said "With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?"
