I don't think I ever question why a blog post was written when I read it.  I guess you probably don't either.  But I'd like to share why I am posting this tonight.

 .

On December 6, 2012 a friend of mine asked for some help because  he wasn't happy and he felt trapped in both a job and relationship that were not satisfying him. He lived his life with "can't" and "should" and "try" and without passion or smiles.  He had given up and had chosen to live in a restrictive little box with no way out.  It wasn't a fun place to be but he couldn't imagine living outside of it.

.

He asked me to send him daily inspirational messages that he could read. He wasn't ready to take any action but he thought he could read something every day.  Every day for 114 days  I sent him a message.  Most had cute pictures or song lyrics attached.  At some point about 80 days in, his box closed so tightly that he wouldn't even allow hope or inspiration or faith in anymore. I kept writing and hoping he would read them and see some light coming from outside the box he was trapped inside of.  He didn't.

.

A lot of time and energy and love went into sending those emails. I couldn't delete them. So I have been slowly turning them into blog posts that I hope will help others trapped in boxes. We all hold the key to getting out. It is in our grasp. We just need to turn the key and be willing to step out of the box we have created.

.

What is your box made of?  Excuses?  Old memories of a happier time?  Fear?  Guilt? A feeling of not being good enough or deserving? The thought that it is too late or too much effort to change things?

.

For now, just have a little peek  and imagine the world of possibilities outside your tiny box. I hope some day soon you can take that first step out of the box. There is a whole world of fulfillment and adventure out there to explore!

.

If you would like help figuring out what your box is made of and how to step outside of it, use the contact form  to set up a time for a free chat with me without judgement.

With Gratitude

Faith
