Day 4 – Be Thankful for Your Limitations

Be thankful for your limitations,

Because they give you opportunities for improvement. 

I identified the following 5 limitations that have shown up in my life in various ways.

  1. Chaotic
  2. Impatient
  3. Impulsive
  4. Mistrustful
  5. Undisciplined

Then I determined an opportunity within each perceived limitation.

  1. My chaotic way of scrapbooking and crafting provides me opportunities for creativity because I get everything out all at once and can see from a different perspective.
  2. My impatience fuels my initiative. I don’t sit still waiting for something to happen, instead I take action.
  3. My impulsive nature compels me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. This makes a lot of sense because I’m a life sampler!
  4. My mistrustful nature drives me to be detail oriented.
  5. Because I can be undisciplined I don’t see boundaries the same as others. I enjoy being messy, pushing the envelope and being a free spirit.

Here’s a couple pages from my gratitude journal:
