“I’ve been meaning to get around to that, just haven’t had time…”
“I really want to start getting healthier, just haven’t been able to focus on it…”
Think about it: the truth is probably not that we didn’t have time or literally couldn’t focus on it. It’s just that we didn’t.
Excuses are lies that make us the victim. Reasons are legitimate facts and realities. Be sure you know the difference.
Hold yourself accountable and don’t allow yourself to make excuses.
Saying no is fine. Saying yes is fine. Saying it wasn’t a priority is fine. Saying you made a mistake is fine.
But making yourself a victim and fingering the blame in another direction is not fine.
