Beyond Limit

In our minds we can do anything, and we can be anything. It’s believing in those dreams, and facing our fears head-on that allows us to live our lives beyond our limits.
Maybe instead of looking at our challenges and limitations as something negative or bad, we can begin to look at them as blessings—magnificent gifts that can be used to ignite our imaginations and help us go further than we ever knew we could go.
It’s not about breaking down borders, it’s about pushing off of them and seeing what amazing places they might bring us.

Amy Purdy, who lost her legs at age 19, from her talk, “Living Beyond Limits,” at TEDxOrangeCoast. (via tedx)
This excerpt intrigued me .
Indeed in our minds ,in our imagination, we can do anything without any limitation.
On the contrary, in our lives,we are suffering because we face limitations.
Buddhism's famous quotes    The Four Noble Truths

1. There is Suffering Suffering is common to all.

1. Suffering: Everyone suffers from these thing
    Birth- When we are born, we cry.
    Sickness- When we are sick, we are miserable.
    Old age- When old, we will have ache and pains and find it hard to get around.
    Death- None of us wants to die. We feel deep sorrow when someone dies.
Other things we suffer from are:
    Being with those we dislike,
    Being apart from those we love,
    Not getting what we want,
   All kinds of problems and disappointments that are unavoidable.

are  getting make more senses to me. 
Our brain learn a lot of things and accumulate a lot of  memories associated with emotions.
Getting older,pain of disappointments is greater than excitement of expectation,
which cause giving-up and hesitation and slowly create the cages around us with our own minds.
The cause of suffer is disappointment,unfulfilled feeling associated with the gap between reality ,
life of limitation is greater than our deep expectation,yearning  for no limitation (perfect happiness).
I find maturity in speaker Amy because she doesn't deny hope,desire,limitations and associated
feeling around them at all.
She rather embraces all ."Because the border,limitation,we push off..",what amazing wisdom she
has.(which remind me ying yang symbol).
I'm  already looking forward to  imagine what  amazing places looks like,smell like and feel like
for me with all my senses.
 She gave me a hint what  enjoy life to the fullest means.
