1+1=2

I don´t have a lot of time today because we´re going to be climbing to the tallest point in Germany today, but I still have a little time. 

This week I have been thinking a lot about the commandments and the things that they require of us. Sometimes they seem a little restrictive, but in reality they give us freedom. 

It seems a little funny to think about, that freedom comes from rules and things that tell you what you can and cannot do, but, in reality, the rules give us freedom to go to new heights and to accomplish feats we never thought were possible before.

In math, everyone knows (in a 10 base number system) that 1+1 equals 2. Which seems really restrictive, but in the words of Hal B. Heaton, “If you want to build a rocket to the moon you better believe that one plus one equals two.”

The restriction actually helps us to realize higher things that NEVER would have been possible if you didn´t follow that simple equation.

So this week, maybe, instead of trying to hold on to the little things, like denying that 1+1 is 2, then embrace them so you can reach the moon.

One of my favorite quotes is:

“Don´t tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”

Don´t limit yourself by breaking the small rules.

I love you all!
