No More Excuses!

My pastor said something that, although he has said it before, finally hit home.

“Don’t make excuses, make adjustments.”

Oftentimes I realize I reign supreme as the queen of excuses.

I don’t have time. I don’t have energy. I don’t know how. I don’t know when. I can’t. What if I fail? What will others think? Is that even possible? And the list goes on and on.

Whether it is those unwanted pounds sitting on my backside, clutter creeping back into my surroundings, blogposts that go unwritten, family that goes unvisited, dreams that die on the vine, goals that go unfulfilled or projects that sit halfway finished, my list of excuses justifies them all.

Deep down I know some adjustments are in order. Those pounds would turn loose, the goals achieved, the blogposts written, the family memories made, the clutter cleared and the projects completed.

The cold realization sinks in. I have no excuse.

Often we make excuses when simple adjustments are all that is necessary to achieve our goals.

As I ponder the upcoming changes needed, I encourage you to consider doing so as well.

Set aside the excuses, make the adjustments and achieve what you really want!

Yes, those adjustments could make all the difference in the world!  Thank you Pastor Joel!
