Positive Quote: “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison
This quote makes me think about the limitations we place on ourselves. Sometimes these limitations are small and sometimes they are larger. Yet, they remain just the same.
For example, on a personal level I am in awe of the creativity and ability of various artists and enjoy looking at their work. However, I tell myself that I am not artistic. This is a self-limitation, as I have not tried to paint or sculpt or anything like that. I wonder, would I astound myself if I tried.
This quote challenges me to look for ways to go outside of my own personal comfort zone and to try new things. Who knows, I may astound myself.

Have a marvelous Thursday and here is to doing something new and astounding ourselves.
