I really wanted to call this an ultimatum instead of a manifesto, but when I looked up the definition, I didn't like one of the ways in which that word was defined.
Ultimatum...a final, uncompromising demand or set of terms issued by a party to a dispute, the rejection of which may lead to a severance of relations or to the use of force.
That sounded rather...severe.
So I went with my original desire which was the right thing to begin with. I have more to say about original, burning desires, but I'll save that for another soon-to-be-written post.
Manifesto... a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or organization.
That not only sounds better, it feels better.
And that's the whole point of being uninhibited...
Feeling, as in experiencing and embodying whatever it is you truly desire in life and better, as in living what is most true for you. So one definition of uninhibited might be...
Uninhibited - a way of being or embodiment that expresses the truest experience of oneself and one's desires.
It is my intention to live my life in this manner. It is my wish to inspire all who may read this. It is my offering and invitation to come to Maui and take part in an experience of movement and embodiment that will shake your limbs, stir your senses and serve you in a myriad of ways.
~The Uninhibited Manifesto~
I am free. I am free to live my life as I choose.To flourish and falter and...not fail. I learn. I am free to trust my gut. To make my decisions and have my doubts and...not dismiss that still voice within. I listen. I am free to speak my truth. To say what wants to be spoken and state what's obvious to me and...not silence myself so as to not offend others. I communicate. I am free to follow my dreams. To discover if they're wild and worthy or weak and wavering and...not wonder if my imagination is too big. I desire. I am free to express my emotions. To crack up with laughter at inappropriate times or curl up into a ball and spill tears onto the floor and...not cover up ever. I feel. I am free to move my body how it wants to. To experience both pleasure and pain and...not prevent aging or postpone my own death. I transform. I am free to reject the status quo. To stand up for what's right and shift others' perspectives and...not stay the course. I act. I am free to ask for what I need. To make bold requests and brave offers and...not boast. I inspire. I am free to change my mind. To ponder at great lengths and profess unpopular opinions and...not procrastinate. I grow. I am free to be me. To bring forth, fall apart, let go, begin again, fuck up, turn around, sign off, love hard and move on and...not give up, hide out or hold back anything. I live.
