Overcome Your Limitations and Write!

by Kimberly Standard

I have had a few limitations with life. We all do. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) thirty years ago when I was about twenty. I wanted to keep living a normal life so I tried to ignore the MS and tried to live like everyone else.  
A few years passed by when I met my hubs. We started building a life together by having two beautiful children. There were many uncertainties with the MS and kids back then but I am so thankful that I took the risk. I do not know how I raised them. I claim, Post Traumatic War stuff as my excuse for my loss of memory.
I began my blog three years ago with a thought of what do I want to say to the world. Maybe you can say whatever you want to with a blog.  I wanted to exclaim remember, "Stuff Could Always be Worse". My aunt had been bedridden most of her life so she helped me to keep things in perspective.
When I began my blog I could not use my fingers very well since the MS had taken the dexterity of my fingers away. I certainly said to myself, “You are not a writer,” and “Your fingers do not work good anymore, so you can not type”.   However, my typing has improved tremendously since I began on the computer. That is still a miracle to me.
We all seem to have limitations to overcome. 
A lack of self-confidence is a tough hurdle to leap but it is possible.   
Most of us have time constraints to deal with. We can have excuses of “I do not have the tools I need.” “I do not have a talent to write.” “I am too boring with nothing to write about.” “I am too busy with no time to write.”
The limitations we put on ourselves never end. So try to overcome your limitations in whatever area of life you need to.  Your readers will thank you!
