The Weekly Photo Challenge is Boundaries. Boundaries are physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational. They can consist of the limits of what we consider safe and appropriate. They reinforce our values, goals, concerns, and roles we choose to play. There are similarities and differences in boundaries across cultures, so it is important to be sensitive to people’s differences.

Yes, maintaining boundaries allows us to gain trust in ourselves to take care of ourselves. But, sometimes with our dune buggy and a wild streak, I like to go beyond boundaries, experience the wind in my hair, and the sand under my feet. No boundaries can be exhilarating!
