Take Part in our “Free From” Photo Challenge!

It’s easy; all you have to do is follow these 3 simple steps:
 1. 📸Take a photo while holding up a “Free from___” sign (you fill in the blank).
2. 📲Post the photo to social media with a caption that states what freedom means to you.
3. 💚Tag us (@liberomagazine) and you’re done! (don’t forget to encourage others to take part, too!)

Here are some examples from our community:

Here’s how some of our community members define “Freedom”:

Freedom means breaking free of my comfort zone and living in the moment, with no fears or anxieties–a life full of love for myself and for others.
To me, freedom is about owning my story and letting go of the shame and secrecy that kept me trapped for years. It’s about shedding the lies and clinging only to the truth about who I am and what I am capable of.
Freedom is the chance to live. Actually just live. Not have something controlling you or threatening to destroy your life all the time. Freedom is simply just living and living without fear.
Freedom means letting your true self be your guide.
Freedom has come to mean the ability to believe in a future of unlimited possibilities. I am free to think of any future I desire, to work towards any goals I want to achieve, and to make whatever dreams I want happen. It’s a beautiful thing, freedom.

Thank you for joining us for mental health month 2021!
