The sky is the limit

Or so they say. ‘They’ being people of the world. I’ve heard this expression a lot, and it seems as if lately it is being thrown around even more. Honestly though, I have no idea what it means. I just don’t understand it. Why is it used? Is the sky really the limit? Is it a metaphor or is it meant to be literal? Neil Armstrong (may he rest in peace), who recently passed away proved otherwise. There is more to us than what lies underneath the sky. He proved something many people did not think was possible- he was the first man on the moon. However, not all of us can be astronauts or the first people to do a spectacular act like that but we can make a difference. The sky is not the limit. There is no limit to what we can do. The only thing holding us back from being the best that we can be is usually our own selves. We’re pessimistic and have no self-confidence and because of that, we don’t reach our full potential in life. We can’t let people tell us what we can and can’t do. So maybe what we have to do is stop setting a limit for ourselves. No limit means anything is possible, even if it seems like the impossible at the moment. A positive attitude will result in positive outcomes, in any situation, no matter what it is. And that is my wrinkle of the day!

One thought on “The sky is the limit

  1. i like how you started off with questions, which is an effective way of engaging the reader.
    and the whole neil armstrong thing. i do think that pessimism and low self-confidence are part of our natural tendencies, though i dont think that “we” ALL are pessimistic and have NO self-confidence. yes we can train ourselves to think positively and better about ourselves…
