So, what do we stand to gain if we stop making excuses? Well, first let's delve into some of the excuses we have. Why we can't get healthier? Or spend more time with our families? Or less time on the computer (an ironic statement considering where my behind is sitting right now as I type this post. Moderation in all things, yes?) Or trying to kick bad habits? Why we can't forgive people? Why we aren't more sympathetic and understanding of other's struggles? Why we are quick to judge but not listen? Etc, etc, etc.
How often have you been on the other end of people's excuses and how does it feel? Do you project your excuses on other people?
So, my Question of the Day is a confession of sorts. Go back to my original quote, "Be the change YOU want to see in the world."
What changes do you want to see? Choose something where the first step toward change can be in an area where you, first, start changing yourself?
Just think about the ripple effect you could cause. Pretty cool, eh?
