I think you are misunderstanding the context in which I say that. of course we have personal limits. Such as we are not limited from experiencing dancing, singing, and tumbling. Whether we can afford to take lessons, or whether we find resources to learn for free, or whether we just watch or participate. there are even resources that would allow for physically disabled people to have these experiences. Yes there are person limits. I'm not saying we can walk through brick walls here lol just that a brick wall does not have to stop us to get to where we are going. I dont say "too bad brick wall" (this is my inch, you can't have a mile) I say "there is a brick wall here, how else can we do this?" (unlimited options) So yes, there are limits and that was poor context for that word. In the context though that is not what I meant. I just mean that our limits are different then boundaries. Limits we can work around instead of boundaries we have to stay in. There is no need for my children to test the limits because the limits aren't preventing them from experience, they are just part of the experience. There is no need to "take a mile" when I give an inch because I don't give inches or miles. They are already there, endlessly. Since they know this they don't have to test it. And since they aren't busy testing it we live harmoniously with each other. They choose to stay "close" even though they have the option of going "far" I know they will go far in life though, one day, when they are ready. There is no need to be like "is this okay? how about this? what if I push it further." I don't find that they want to test if I'd let them jump off a roof. They already know if they seek thrill we will find a way to meet that that works for everyone in a safe way. Just knowing that they are more ikely to say "I want to do something EXCITING!" then say "mom, i want to jump off the roof"
