Freedom means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Although it's defined as "The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint" I think that most people would agree that when thinking about it, they would say that to them, certain things make them think of freedom.
For me it is:
The time when the housework is done, the uni work is done and there is nothing hanging over your head that you HAVE to do.
The feeling when you are upside down on a trampoline, and it feels like you're flying
A time to sit and knit, for as long as you want, knowing there is nothing else you should be doing
Cuddling up in bed with the one you love, knowing you don't have to get up for a long time
Sitting round a campfire at a music festival, drinking cider with your friends, surrounded by 200,000 people
Having the time and money to just get in your car and drive, and see where it takes you
I class a lot of things as defining freedom to me, even though they don't all fit into that definition at the top. What would you class as defining freedom to you? I'm genuinely interested in what t means to different people.
