Personal limits


This is a follow up to my previous blog post, Goals & dreams. If you haven’t read that I recommend reading it before reading this one.

Now, to the point. This is a drawing I drew last week. I can’t draw humans though. Or that’s what I told myself. Why? I have no idea. But this is one of the big problems I’ve had related to my goals and dreams. If I keep giving myself limitations for no reason, how can I ever reach my goals?

I haven’t reflected much about why I limit myself, but it’s in the same lane as accepting that I will never be famous/do anything important. Despite being surrounded by “You can do anything” and all that stuff, I have forgotten to let myself dream. But it’s never too late, right? Now that I’ve had this realisation, I’m very determined to change my mindset and to start living. Someone said once that we all live two lives, and the second starts when we realise we only have one.

Another quote that have inspired me after the whole “Goals and dreams” realisation, is one by actor Tom Hiddleston.

– I feel like I get to the top of a mountain, and I go “Oh look there’s another one, I’ll go up that one!”

That’s exactly what I want to do. Why set limitations, instead of just doing it? You can say that drawing a human was a little mountain for me, a challenge that I wanted to succeed in. And I did. Now it’s time to look for another mountain.
