In class the other night I felt like I was acting from inside a glass box. I could see what was on the outside, out of my comfort zone, but when I tried to move forward, sideways or anywhere, I just kept running into walls. I was so frustrated, I could see where I wanted to be, but I couldn't figure out how to get out and get there. It made me think of this scene from Divergent.
As I delved into the "why" of it all, it occurred to me that so often in life I allow myself to be held back by things that don't actually have power over me. And I think the first step is recognizing that. Then it can be as easy as simply tapping on the glass to make it crack... All we have to do is realize that "it's not real," these restrictions and limitations that are containing us, suppressing our dreams, keeping us from being who we truly are inside. The only limits we have are those that we put on ourselves! It is simply a decision to stop holding back in fear, to step up and shatter the glass of our inhibitions and escape!! So what are we waiting for??
