Life is safer in boxes. Everything has it's place and everything is contained. Nothing can get lost. Nothing can get broken. Nothing can escape. Nothing can get in. Life is safer in boxes.
However, real life cannot be truly lived in boxes. Only in unpacking, as painful as it can often be, can each item be fully integrated in our existence. Only in unpacking can we have life.
Unpacking can take time, and it probably should. There is no need to rush. Just start with one. What box can be unpacked today?
