My yoga teacher shared a poem in class that really touched me and I wanted to share it with you. It’s called “Outside the Box.” Does it speak to you too? Here it is …
“Maybe there’s no box to think outside.
Maybe there’s no lock, no door, or key.
Perhaps there’s just the scared, small me
holding tight to turf that isn’t mine,
trying to be somebody.
I struggle for release.
I seek and strive,
all the while failing to see the obvious.
The only walls in front of me are those I’ve built myself,
the fortress of my personality so well defended it seems impenetrable.
What I create, I can take down –
or maybe I am free right now.”
Beautiful, right? I encourage you to think about how YOU can get out of your box today. Step out of your comfort zone. Do something gutsy. Live a little (or a lot!).
