Relaxing tightness I did not know I had
Until the moment it is gone.

Gratitude is just a word,
Until it spreads to my face…

How We See Limitations and Under Water Wheel Chairs

Much of what we experience as a limitation in our lives is invisible – it resides within each one of us, in the form of limiting beliefs or expectations that we hold about ourselves or others. It can literally paralyze us and keep us from moving forward with all the creativity and joy that is our birthright as human beings.
