Our weekly podcast represents all of us that color outside the lines, that strive to escape the restraints that society places on us, and desire to see the world from a new perspective. Beyond the Box opens a dialogue for conversations that need to be had and brings awareness to issues that need to be addressed, all while challenging stigma and social norms. We each have our own unique blend of intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual components, and none of us fit neatly into any box.
When Dave and I created Beyond the Box we weren't sure exactly where it would take us, or who we would meet. In fact, we felt that it was important that we let it develop and take whatever path it was meant to. Over the last five months we have recognized some interesting themes that have surfaced in our interviews. What we have realized that no matter what realm we are exploring there is a need for a more person-centered approach in our society. We are all individuals and we all have our own stories - what works for one person may not work for the next, and we cannot be pigeonholed. A one-size fits all approach is no longer working. One of the most uplifting benefits I have received from hosting Beyond the Box is that it is has been wonderful to see how many people out there are using their voice to advocate for change, and at the end of 2022 I have been left with hope. Listen to this week's podcast to hear more about some of the surprising themes that have become apparent in our podcasts.
It has been an incredible year that brought many changes to S.T.E.P. by S.T.E.P., Inc. Dave and I are so grateful to all of our listeners, and all of the incredible individuals that have taken the time to speak with us and share their missions and stories. We can't wait to see who we'll meet in 2023. We wish you much health and happiness in the New Year!
