Don’t get stuck with the wrong box

Even though I’m not making any resolutions in the traditional sense, I do think a new year inspires both reflection and looking ahead at what life might hold. I came across the video below on Facebook one day, and I think it’s a perfect reminder of what to avoid in a new year. Avoid getting stuck or picking the wrong goals to pursue. I can honestly say that I don’t feel very stuck; life has felt like it’s been following a pretty constant curve of subtle (and not-so-subtle) changes over the past two years. However, should I be tempted to cling to pursuing a comfortable box to make life tidy, this video can be a reminder to leave boxes behind and to be willing to strike out in new directions entirely. As I’ve discovered in the past, doing this can be scary at first but can lead to exciting adventures.

Of course, if you are in a box that fits for now and it’s where you are supposed to be, have fun in it.

P.S. – I don’t even like cats that much, but if all cats were this entertaining, I might be tempted to get one.
