“The limit does not exist…the limit simply does not exist….”
… Mean Girls quote, anyone?
Kady (main character, designated and chosen Mean Girl), was trying to figure out a math problem when she said this line towards the end of the movie. However, it can be interpreted in a different way. At least for me, anyways.
Isn’t it crazy how often we put limits on ourselves? We give ourselves the strictest deadlines and sometimes the most unrealistic and unreasonable goals to achieve. We can often be our biggest critics too.
Why do we do this?
It could be for a number of reasons. One might be “The Grass Is Greener Syndrome”, where you look at the success of others and wonder why you haven’t reached that level yet. As a result, you put yourself into an unnecessary overdrive. Another reason could stem from a lack of faith in your talent. This might even be ironic if you’re an amazing cheerleader for your friends but not nearly as great for your own self. The list could go on and on…..but is it really helpful at the end of the day? Nope.. So let’s:
Imagine what life would be like if we took the limits off of ourselves. If we stopped worrying about what others thought or said about us, we could pour that energy back into our dreams. God has clearly outlined where and what we need to do, so why should we allow others to distract us from His 100% fool-proof plan? Why won’t we allow ourselves to live the life He has intentionally intended for us?
Let today be the day you take off the limits and soar higher than the eagles.
Today’s Challenge: Dare to live outside of the box. If not for your own self, for the ones looking up to your example.
