Excuses

 Sometimes I feel that my life has become all about excuses. I don't have time, I don't have space, I have had three kids.........oh I could go on and on and on about why I can't do it. Over the last 5 years I have really let a lot go. My body and my house have certainly taken the top of that list by storm. Recently I realized that I had been using excuses so long that I was believing them! Yep I was believing everything I had been telling myself the last 5 years. I am not fat and out of shape because I have three kids, it is because I eat to much and do to little! My house is not trashed because I have no space, I have three kids or I don't have enough time, although those things aren't a help. It is because I don't make the effort anymore, well not like I use to at least. While I am not sure what caused me to get to this point I'm starting to work myself out of it slowly. Breaking the cycle of excuses is not easy though, I struggle with it every day. But taking 2-3 bags of trash out of your house every day and turning around and seeing it still a mess means I let them get out of hand! I use to have one of those homes people walked into and complimented, now I'm ashamed to have anyone even come to my door. I know many of you are probably just cringing right now thinking of what my house must look like and no it isn't pretty, don't worry hoarders will not be coming to my house, but I am a work in progress and one day I will be the person I deserve to be ;O). Next time you make an excuse just think about it, think about whether it is really true. Things can always be different it just takes a little effort and support. I've had to learn that the hard way as most people do huh.lol I hope you are having a great Thursday remember all the blessings you have around you and hold them tight.

I heard someone say recently that nothing will change if you don't change something... I took that to heart and have quit making excuses not to do my morning exercise routine before everyone gets up.

Good luck to you, and me, on our positive change. :)

I agree. I make up excuses all the time. I have now vowed to stick on track with my plan. Some days will work, others days won't but I will try!

Once we start making excuses, it's easier to believe them than to admit the truth.
