Have you ever started to explain something to someone else, only to realize you’re also explaining it to yourself? It’s a weird feeling, and it surprises me every time.

The other day our daughter, Maeve, was complaining about how she never had the things she needed to make what she wanted to make or do what she wanted to do. Out of nowhere I started in on a bit of a lecture, and here is what I learned, whether or not she understands it yet.

Limitations inspire innovation.

It’s way too easy to make excuses for yourself.

If only I were…

If only I had…

When I finally get _________, then…

But the real truth is that our limitations are actually a blessing if we choose to look at them with the right perspective.

When our options are too broad they tend to paralyze us like a deer caught in headlights.

I’ve been realizing this more and more over the past year, and this year we’ve been trying to narrow down our focus.

Just the thought of having one or even two things to put ALL of our effort into feels like unimaginable freedom.

We have a lot of “if only, then“s, but from now on we’re going to do our best to view them differently.

When we have everything we could possibly use, we have no need to get creative and nothing new would ever be developed. Here is a great article I found that illustrates, rather literally, what I mean.

My little mothering lecture inspired this thought, which I’m sharing as a free printable.
