We all have burdens; some are self-imposed, some we are born with, and some are imposed by others - whether they are aware of it or not.
The mother who tells her child she's too fat (or too thin), the one who says "You'll never amount to anything...I knew I couldn't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear," ....the child who fails at understanding math in third grade and forever after can't make sense of it due to a mental block.
Why do we let this happen to us? A 'vast burden of imaginary limitations...." The key word is "imaginary." If it is imaginary in childhood, it should be crystal clear that it was imposed on us, by the time we reach adulthood - or surely by the time we are 50. And yet, so many people I know or have read about are still strapped by those limitations (imaginary or not) in later years. Let's resolve to break free of those limitations and pursue success (in whatever area) with a vengeance born of frustration. Let me know how you do, okay?
The dentist gave me a good report today - YAY!
Seasonal allergies have settled into the kenju home and I am a bundle of itchy eyes and runny nose - BOO!
I got the grocery shopping done for the week - YAY! Have I told you how much I hate grocery shopping?
Gas prices will be the death of my ability to take off whenever I please. Mr. kenju had his heart set on going to Virginia in March and I was looking forward to seeing SRP again, but due to the recent precipitous rise in gas prices, that won't happen any time soon - BOO!
