Can we still enjoy life when we are limited to do some things?

How should I enjoy life when I'm limited to do the things I love and wanted to do? Do feel this kind of feeling? There are many factors to consider before doing what we want, and some of these factors are hindering to do what I really want.

Although I think it would be difficult to enjoy some things that we cannot do, there are always other ways or other things that we can get into to enjoy. There are many people with disabilities that do everything they want to do. Granted, some people are more disabled then others. But like I said, there is always something else to focus on and strive for.

Human beings are very adaptable. We can adapt to whatever situation that we're put in. We can find the bright side of whatever dark cloud we get mired at. So in this case, we should be able to enjoy life even if we are hindered, or we are limited to doing a few things. Anyway, that's what I heard (about humans).

I think the key is to keep focusing on the positive - the things we can do - instead of thinking about the things we can't do. There are many things I can't do any more, but there are many things I can still do. I know that I won't be able to do some of those things until the end of my life, so I try to enjoy them now. For instance, I enjoy knitting and playing the piano, but I can feel arthritis creeping into my hands and I know that eventually, I won't be able to do them, at least without pain. I enjoy them while I can and thank God that I was able to do other things at one time. Those things now are pleasant memories that I can bring out whenever I want to.

The list of things I want to do is very long. The list of things I can't do is getting longer every day. I used to ride and train horses. I used to down hill ski. I used to get up, go skiing and party well into the night. I used to get up and ride horses all day and party well into the night. Ah youth. If I had it again I'd rejoice! I wish I had a job and a car again. I wish I could take care of myself again! My life isn't over so I rejoice in what I have before it's all taken away from me!

I certainly do think that we can. Just because we can't do a lot of things, it doesn't mean that we can't enjoy life. It just means that we're limited with the amount of things that we can do. But we can still enjoy life all the same.

hi, for me i think we can not fully enjoy our life if there are limitations to do something,some of them such an addiction and some of them are only for pleasure.
