This 10-minute video is incredible. It talks about embracing our limitations. Period. It’s a presentation given by Phil Hansen, an artist, and how he turned a shaking disability into an asset. It is a lesson to all of us about anything that goes wrong in our lives. This guy is amazing, his creativity, his will to be…to create art.
It’s a lesson in “going around the rocks,” I like to say. When you have some kind of obstacle, go around them, find another path. In writing this can be applied in so many ways, not the least of which are writer’s block and methods of publication. But it’s about so much more, about how to overcome any adversity and move forward, still making the world a better place by finding within oneself the beauty one still has to share with the world. We all have our issues, some worse than others, and sometimes we need to mourn. But, once we get past that, we need to find a way to bring our gifts into the world, whether it be a smile and a helping hand, or the creation of art. It may sound trite, but after watching this video you might well find yourself thinking: the only limitations are the ones we put on ourselves.
Embrace the shake!
