Live Beyond Your Box

It is so easy to get caught up in our daily routines. We get swept up inside our little boxes and never leave. Maybe your box has a window, look out that window. Maybe your box has a door, step outside that door. Live life beyond your box.

Try something new.

Think about it, when was the last time you tried something new?

I want you to come up with one thing. The one thing that without a doubt terrifies you. The one thing that makes your heart beat out of your chest and your palms sweat like a hot summer day. You know that one thing. Picture it in your head. Got it? Good.

Now…

Go do that.

Whatever that is. Go do it right now. (Okay, finish reading this first, and then go do it. But you get the point.)

Do it.

Make yourself vulnerable while simultaneously giving yourself courage. That combination prepares you to reach the depths of your heart. Reach way down low until you cannot reach any further. Then continue to reach some more. .

Just know that you are doing this for yourself. Not for anyone else.

Challenge yourself. Try something that people will not believe you actually tried. Surprise yourself and others. Do something that makes you uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable is not always a bad thing. It can lead to unexpected wonders

Spontaneity is just as fun as it sounds. Give it a healthy try.

So book the ticket. Jump out of the plane. Take that road trip. Say I love you. Say hi to the cute guy in Starbucks. Buy that dress you normally would not be caught dead in. Tell someone yes. Tell someone no. Challenge yourself. Memories are something you will always have. They are something that can never be taken away from you.

Live outside your box.

Your soul will thank you. I promise.
