No excuses

I have become a woman of no excuses.

I used to make excuses all the time – I’m too tired, I’m too busy….Why I couldn’t exercise, why I couldn’t make good/healthy food, why I didn’t like to eat vegetables, why I couldn’t clean the house.  I now try to keep excuses out of my vocabulary, and I’m a better wife, mother, woman, worker, co-worker, daughter…for my lack of excuses.  It does not mean that I enjoy every task set before me…it means that I do it with a different heart toward the activity.  I do it with a heart of gratitude and thankfulness instead of a heart of bitterness.   I do it knowing that the outcomes, the rewards, the changes in me and others.

It does not mean I am successful every day…it only means I am a work in progress, and that whenever I hear someone else making excuses for not bettering their lives, I can only say a prayer that they will one day, be a work in progress too.
