Where Does Freedom Begin?

It’s hard not to cross-post between my two blogs but I have 8 years of followers here and no followers on my new career venture. Being that I am making every effort to now combine my passions (Mental Health, Men’s Discipleship, Recovery Ministry, and Personal Empowerment) by launching into a coaching career, it is not irrelevant information to what I have blogged here for years.

If the topics or information is meaningful to you I would be grateful for a like/follow on Nikaos.net  🙂

Blessings in Christ,

Where Does Freedom Begin?

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

This topic of FREEWILL or CHOICE is clearly an important one.

It is easy for us to say that we are ‘free to choose’ or that we have ‘freedom’, especially in America.

About NIKAOS, JOR & LMP

Life is hard, and change is inevitable. Sometimes it is welcomed, and other times it is overwhelming. As a child abuse survivor who has struggled with mental illness such as anxiety, PTSD, ADD, OCD, addictions and mountains of self-worth issues, I now find myself resilient, empowered and filled with gratitude most days.

It takes incredible amounts of self-awareness, honesty, humility, and courage to make choices that are the polar opposite of how you feel. It takes vision and determination, hope and healing. I'm glad you stopped by my blog, I hope you found something of use as I transparently share my journey with others, the highs and the lows, the wisdom and the blunders, in the hopes that my mess becomes a message of hope, encouragement, and strength for even one person. .
