Self imposed restrictions

Slip Sliding Away

Do you ever apply self-imposed restrictions?

Plenty of self imposed restrictions – diet, lifestyle, behaviour – you name it.

And the restrictions need to serve a purpose I consider a worthy one.

In general terms, I am not a fan of restrictions – particularly those imposed by culture, state, or legal systems.

I am a great fan of Douglas Bader’s saying (and I suspect it is much older than him) – Laws are made for the obeyance by fools and the guidance of wise men.

And I am far from perfect. I make mistakes. And it is over 4 years since I missed my twice daily dose of vitamin C, or consciously ate any animal product (though I suspect that some of the so called vegan things I have been sold did in fact contain dairy products – from the way my body reacted to them.

And I am careful where I put my banana peels, and careful to keep bathroom and kitchen floors dry (due to accident risk).
