“I’ve got no strings
To hold me down
To make me fret, or make me frown” from the movie Pinocchio
What would it be like to not have so many strings holding you down?
“I need help making a decision”
“I need a new job”
“I am in debt and don’t know what to do”
“I am divorced and a couple of kids, and a job that I don’t like, what do I do?”
“I am in a business that isn’t making any money, what do I do next?”
“I have ADHD can can’t concentrate or focus, who will hire me?”
“I want to work for myself. I don’t like being tied to a desk all day long. What do I do next?”
“I hate my job but I love the people I work with and I can’t just quit”. Imagine working at a job you hate to do where you’re not appreciated by the people who hired you. The work gets more tedious each day you walk into the office and you have to have a job because there are bills to pay. Not only are there strings from the job that hold you captive there are other strings and bills that have to be paid, mortgage, insurance, car payments, phone, internet, TV, and many other things that make life easier (with strings attached) to pay for.
Are you feeling bound by the strings of life? What would it feel like to start untangling that web of string that is robbing you of the joy you want to experience?

Start today. Take each string and untangle it and then create a plan to remove it until there are no strings attached.
If you should wonder why, then give this movie a try.
Find a way to detach those strings that are holding you back from living the life you desire.
“It may be that we are puppets-puppets controlled by the strings of society. But at least we are puppets with perception, with awareness. And perhaps our awareness is the first step to our liberation.” Stanley Milgram
