The limit is not in the sky. The limit is the mind.” ~Unknown
I was having a conversation with a friend. She was telling me how maybe I should quit my writing and focus on something that wasn’t so challenging for me; that I should accept my limits and work within those boundaries. Her words made me cringe.
You see, I am dyslexic and I struggled greatly to write this story down. I am probably going to read it twenty times and will still have many mistakes that need editing.
If you think you can't run a marathon, you'll never push yourself to start training; you’ll limit your body by your minds perception.
If you think you can't start a new career in a creative field, you'll overlook opportunities to strengthen your craft and potentially earn from it.
Doing what you want to do starts with believing it's possible, no matter how difficult it may be. Achieving what it’s beyond our pre-conceived limits is what strengthens not only our bodies, but also our own minds.
Muhammad Ali didn’t become the greatest boxer of all time by believing it was easy, but by pushing beyond the pain and frustration, by forging a mind that saw him go beyond what he thought were his limitations.
I can whine and quit because I have a learning disability, or I can accept I have a disability and work around it, through it, and over it. For many years I saw my self as a failure for having something I never wished I had, but the moment I took responsibility for myself, my life, and my mind, I found the courage and determination to not let it define me.
Don’t let your mind define you. You are so much greater than what you think you are.
Electric Picnic was my 33rd and absolute favorite festival I’ve ever been to!! Even though all the Irish couldn’t even believe I had flown there all the way from the US for this festival hahaha.
If you love Electric Forest, you HAVE to put EP on your bucket-list. Everything about Electric Forest, it does even bigger and better (on a ridiculously grand scale). Met this Irish sweetheart at my Kip and Go campsite! Everyone from my camp was unbelievably nice.
I really hope to go back someday 😭.
Wahey! I've now climbed 178/273 Irish mountains over the past 6 weeks. 😍
Only 95 summits in Ireland left to complete my record-breaking challenge 😀👍 The weather has been utterly horrific; the views non-existent; and the schedule incredibly tiring. But there have been amazing moments too. My positivity and high spirits won't be beaten by the never-ending rain and tropical hurricanes. I'm going to do this! Thanks to everyone for all of the messages of love and support. It means so much. ❤️
