“All humas have their limits, they learn what they are and learn not to exceed them. I… I’m ran by the madness and passion so I ignore my limits.” That was a quote which I came across this weekend and it highly resonated with me. A sentence that could easily describe me and my life.
I’ve been raised to behave well, to not make mistakes or cause troubles, to be realistic and NOT exceed my limits… Call it a split personalty or whatever you want, but the more I’ve been thought not to exceed my limits, that’s all I could think about – TO EXCEED them and find out what’s on the other side of the picture.
As a kid, I used to be scared of many things, was very shy and didn’t believe that I will ever get a chance to be myself and let my wild spirit explore, exceed the limitations of the surrounding that I’ve been brought up in and release the wanderlust and fearless spirit that I actually was deep inside.
When I was about 18, I have decided that it’s time to either break it or make it. That’s when I have started to plan my big “escape” out of the limited boundaries because I have accepted the fact that I am driven by this inner madness and curiosity to be more, to see more, to create more… and until I let my spirit roam to explore, I won’t be at peace.
At age 19 and half was when my “journey” started and ever since, for almost 10 years now, I have been living without limitations that society or whatever has created and put upon all of us to believe that we are not meant to want, see or do more than the ordinary. The only limitations that ever stopped me in the past 10 years were my own, which I’ve brought upon myself, but I wouldn’t necessarily call them limitations, but adjustments that I have chosen to make in order to accept and live with some other people’s limitations.
I find that my best creativity, my best ideas and moments in life have been/ happened when I have decided to fully embrace my inner burning flame and danced on the other side of fear… Limits ARE fear! As soon as we limit ourselves to something, it means that we’re in fear of it.
