Through this site I am exploring the idea that our lives are controlled by the boxes we live in. I use the word "boxes" to represent a set of expectations that guide our decision making in every facet of life: work, family, mental health, physical health, relationships, etc. Breaking that idea down - you know, like breaking a box down - everyone has internally created and externally given expectations on how their life is supposed to be lived. These ideas, for better or worse, define who we are and can make it difficult to change ourselves or the lives we're living.
This blog exists to discover and explore the various boxes and how we can manage them. The goal is to live more deliberate lives of our choosing rather than the ones we happen to find ourselves in. Through this journey I aim to live a deeper, happier, and more conscience life; I hope you'll join me.
