Do you know your Limit's?

What limits are those you may ask yourself.  Everyday we make choices some good some bad.  We make decisions in our brains without evening taking the time to notice.  What am I going to drink?  What sounds good to eat?  How do I feel today?  What can I do today?

We may organize ourselves to death every day.  We have high goals and dreams.   When faced with an Illness or disability how do we cope from day to day?  We could do everything all at once and have no strength at the end of the day, we could choose not to do anything.  But what we should do is keep moving and setting good limit's/balance every day.  We have families, friends jobs, to do list's we may get tired.  But try this for one week and let me know how you do and how you feel.

What is most important for me to get done this week?  How do I feel?  What can I do?  What can wait?
We get so busy we don't stop and take a break, listen to the birds, feel the breeze, or enjoy a good book or dish.  So stop and smell, taste and see all the beautiful things in this world, and ask your self Do I know my own Limits?
