Tuesday:) Toni’s Tip of the Day-Know Your Limitations

27 Jul

“Believe in yourself, your abilities and your own potential. Never let self-doubt hold you captive. You are worthy of all that you dream of and hope for.”

Roy Bennett

*************

Sometimes I think I can do just about anything. My tip for today is…”Always try your best with inspiration, but don’t forget to know your limitation.”

I have this flickering ceiling pot light in the kitchen that has been flickering for days. So today, I brought in the ladder from the garage, then got a new LED flood light from the closet.

I Just discovered that my ladder has this nifty hole on top that I can put the bulb in to have my hands free. Cool! I put my cell phone in my pocket so I could take a picture of my endeavors, but also in case I fell down and had to call 911. (Smart)
Well, I climbed up the first step, then the second, and I was still no where close to the ceiling. I braced myself and carefully scaled to the third step. I reached up to the old flickering light… I couldn’t reach it. Dang! Still about 4 or 5 inches too short. I have never gone up to the fourth step, and in my antiquated age, I have NO intention of doing so now. (But, I Gabe it my best shot.)

I have fixed garbage disposals, irrigation panels, sprinkler heads, trimmed trees, carried heavy mulch and have done marvelous landscaping feats of strength, but… I ain’t climbing up on the fourth step of the ladder.

KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS!!! I left the ladder in the kitchen and will ask for assistance from a taller braver person tomorrow. I think this requires a call to Super Sid again. 🤦‍♀️
