Limitations, what can you do

From my last post, a quote that I wrote:

"The hardest thing about life is accepting your limitations, work with what you have and don't worry about what you don't have."  David Alan Binder

I'd like to expand on this topic.  Limitations are conditions that you can work with and overcome in some ways.  Like blind people develop their other senses to compensate, so we, Dear Writers, can also compensate for our limitations. There are work arounds, ways to cope, possibly overcome, carry off (deal successfully with something difficult, surmount, work out, handle, manage, shrug off or get through.  You have to figure out for yourself how you will deal with the limitations you have been dealt with in life and through tools at your disposal.  Can't type, then dictate; Dear Writers, the possibilities are endless and you may be wallowing in self pity when if you took that energy and put it to working with the limitation it may no longer be a limitation but a uniqueness.

Let your uniqueness work for you NOT against you.  You are one of a kind and no one can dictate how you will handle anything.  Be unpredictable and work through the problem.

After all, Dear Writers, you have one thing that only you can bring to bear on the problem.  Your resourcefulness, your resilience, and your brilliance that no one else has but you.

Dear Writers, send me your stories of resourcefulness and how you have compensated and overcome adversity.  We all have adversity; it is just in how you deal with it.

I heard a saying once; the only difference between a saint and a sinner is, that a sinner quits and a saint gets back up.  So get back up and persevere.
