You may wonder, why did I decide to create Out of the Box Connections? Well…

I know how it feels to be a minority, a majority, an outcast and an insider.
I know how it feels to be a rounded peg continually forced into jagged square holes.
I know how it feels to be confronted with a check list of classifications and not know how to categorize myself into one single box, that at best can barely represent a small fraction of who I am and what I do.
I know how it feels to assimilate and adapt into so many groups & cultures that an ever-changing piece of me almost always feels a step outside.

I know how it feels to be pushed & pulled between extremes.
I know how it feels to have others take away your voice because apparently your individuality threatens the status quo.
I know how it feels to reach out for compassion and in turn receive harsh judgement for not being who or what I am “supposed” to be.
I know how it feels to go out on my own into the unknown – and struggle when without adequate support.

I know how it feels to suffer from chronic disconnect and desperately crave genuine empathy…

but…

I also know how amazing it feels to feel genuinely connected.

I know how it feels to belong in a supportive, inspired community.
I know how it feels to revel in trust, compassion, mutual-understanding and respect.
I know how it feels to be valued, appreciated and wanted for being 100 percent me.
I know how it feels to achieve success through thoughtful positioning and authentic distinctiveness.

I know how it feels to ride the glorious wave of creative flow.
I know how it feels to open myself up to wondrous possibilities, travel the world on my own (on six continents) and be rewarded with the extraordinary.
I know how it feels to savor those precious moments when everything feels perfectly in synch.
I know how it feels to not only have a voice – but to have a voice that is heard.

I know how it feels to be Out of the Box.

I love being Out of the Box  &  I appreciate others who are Out of the Box.

thrive off of quality Connections  &  I make a living crafting Connections.

So I created Out of the Box Connections.
