Being physically limited may not be a bad thing sometimes. Helps me to slow down and be more relaxed. I used to be a neurotic person who not only stress myself but the people around me too. I have learned to be calmer and slower.

While I do this, I noticed that others are living like white mice. I wonder if it is me who no longer rushes or is it them who are moving faster than before. Can anyone enlighten me?

I am learning that less is more. In words, in actions, and even in time.

My part time PA remarked how I could accomplish so many things when I have only 3 hours with her (she only comes 3 hours a time, 3 times a week).

I reflected on it and I realized that I am probably more productive with just 3 hours in this condition, than having 24 hours fully autonomous because when I was fully autonomous, I procrastinated a lot.

Nowadays, most of the day I live slowly but write down what I want to do. So when my PA comes, I get it all done in just 3 hours with her help.

So I cannot say that being physically limited is an entirely a drawback.
