If you always put limits on everything

you do, physical or anything else

it will spread into your life.

There are no limits

There are only plateaus

and you must not stay there

you must go beyond them....

Bruce Lee

these words
are constantly said
to me..

Thank you Ernestine for both your posts you dug me out of a slump unknowingly. I had frustration and wanted to give up. Now no more. Just a plateau. I learn from Daughter and Grandgirl all the time.

I agree with not ... always ... putting limits on what I do -- but there are times when limits might be wise, or recognizing my limits at any given time in a particular situation. Wisdom might be knowing when and/or how much to limit and when not to limit. Just saying.....

WWW, pleased I helped, you help me and do not realize it. Let me know what is involved in your move (still thinking)
joared, agree :)
it truly helps me with my son visiting
a lot being accomplished and going over and everyone says "you are doing fine"
I scold, but then at this stage of life with the severe arthritis guess I am doing good, just not like in the past and guess that is where my mind is :)

Thinking of you this morning and wishing you a wonderful day! :-)

Rebecca said...

Missing you.
I come over before lunch to see what you're up to..and for some new wisdom to glean from YOUR journey.
Can't remember how long your son will be with you, but hoping your brief absence is because of good hours spent enjoying each other's company.
