Giving Up

This year for Lent I have decided to give up making excuses!  Mostly I am giving up the excuse to not have time to exercise.  I love to exercise, but have not done a thing since October!  My excuses have been that I don't have a sitter, it is tax season and Ry is working late, and my favorite: I don't have time.

I know that I really do have the time.  I could go on the treadmill while watching a show or get up early.  If I am honest the excuse really should be that I don't want to make the time!  I think that is true in just about everything we do.  If you don't make something a priority you won't make the time for it.  It really isn't that you don't have the time, it is that you don't want to make the time for it!  Basically, that is just a lazy sort of attitude.

You may not agree and start listing all of your reasons that you don't have time for something, but don't kid yourself.  If you mapped out your day you could find some time somewhere to devote to something that is important to you.

So give up the excuses along with me and make the things in life that should be a priority - a priority!


Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view build for themselves great monuments of nothing.  ~Steven Grayhm
