"Spontaneous Affirmation"

I'm trying to understand Kerouacs' notion of spontaneous affirmation." One struggles with conventions and that's what keeps one from reaching his/her potential. Conventions, conventional wisdom. My daughter asked me should she write, "he is the best daddy, or, you are the best daddy?" I responsed with, "what ever you feel!" This is spontaneous affirmation. How does one let go? How does one challenge himself to be free? Be free. Be free. I'm thinking now of being sober. Not in the idea of an intoxicant, but not high in my thinking. I, constantly look back for something that is not there. I hate it. Human frailty.
