I was reading this week about stepping outside of your comfort zone, and it made me think of the phrase “think outside the box.”
Just to give you a picture of the tangents that take place in my brain, that phrase made me think of something my dad occasionally says:
“What is this box? Who put me in it? I don’t want to be in a box!”
An instructor once told a class that oppression is what a society can inflict upon its members, while repression is always self-inflicted.
As with boxes and comfort zones, there is an expectation that people be/look/behave in a certain manner, but also the limits we place upon ourselves.
Those limits only hinder us.
So, leading into a new week, let’s find one self-limiting idea and work on eradicating that, shall we?
If you believed yourself to be without limitation, what would you do? Travel? Competition? A new job?
