Realizing Your Potential...!

Each one of us knows the feeling.

We are just going through our daily lives, not a care in the world, thinking that we have everything totally under control! No pressure, no problems, all is right with our world! Or...is it?

Suddenly, an unexpected problem arises! A problem that goes beyond our ability to deal with, beyond our capabilities, beyond any foreseeable positive outcome.

We exhaust our knowledge, we test our talents, we suddenly seem to come to the end. The end of our plans, the end of our hopes, the end of our future...the apparent end of our rope!

But then, we find strength from an unexpected source. Reaching down deep inside, we find hidden strength, making us more than we ever thought we could be! It goes like this...!

You see, when we find our hidden potential, when we start to draw on our true inner self, when we start to truly believe in ourselves...others start to believe in us as well!

When we recognize our limits, we can expand them. Most importantly, learn from the past.

Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit. Too foggy to sit outside!

Oh Yah Hermit, you got it! How do you think I keep pulling rabbits out of thin air around here? LOL

Seriously tho, loved it.

HermitJim said...

Hey MMpaints...
Sometimes you do seem to do the impossible...just because it needs to be done!

Glad you liked it.

Thanks for the visit today!

Momlady said...

What a wonderful video. How DO people get shots like that? You are right...just when you think you can't you find you can. Have a beautimus day. And send some sun this way, please.

Momlady said...

P.S. In the old days mattresses were made by stuffing straw inside a fabric envelope. Bugs were able to get in and make their homes....hence "don't let the bedbugs bite".

Good Morning My Special One, great post today. It is a great time of year for this post, when people are so over whelmed by no money for needed things. If only they would learn it isn't gifts but love thats so important. Like you have shared with us, home made things IS where the heart is.
Yes how do they get these shots?
Lets sit and see what other types of gifts we can come up with.

Hey Rae...
You never know what kind of inner strength you can find until you look deep, deep inside! I'm glad you liked the post!

Thank you so much for the viit this morning!

Hey Jesse...
We all can use a helping hand from time to time, buddy! If I could add some wind to your sails, that makes me feel good!

I sure am glad you came by today! Thank you!

Hey Momlady...
We all find that we are like "The little engine that could" when we really need to be!

Thanks for the education about the bed bugs! Thanks also for the visit today!

Hey JoJo...
It would be so much easier on all concerned if we could go back to remembering the reason for the season! But, as most of us have become prisoners of the corporate picture of what Christmas is, we become stressed and feel a quilt we should not have to feel!

Somehow, we need to find that inner peace we need and want! Wish I knew the way...!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over today1 I appreciate it!

Your words, oh so true and the video was great.
Thank you, Uncle Hermit.
Have a great day!

HermitJim said...

Hey Felinae...
I'm glad you liked the post, my friend!

I really am glad that you could come by today! Thanks...!

Cool video, Mister Hermit, sir!

I think some of my best days have been spent pushing the envelope, going beyond my boundaries. Even when they end with spectacular failure...because it's all a learning experience, and you never know what you can get done until you try.

Shade and Sweetwater,
K (who is a wee concerned with her mum's sudden interest in bedbugs, considering the upcoming overnight stay at Mum's house...)

HermitJim said...

Hey K...
I wouldn't be concerned about the bed bugs, just part of an ongoing discussion about days of old!

It's probably safe to sleep over at Mom's...but if you notice straw in the mattress, you might ask for a pallet on the floor!

Right you are about the ongoing learning experience...may it never end!

Thanks for the visit today!
