I really need to get better with this blogging thing…I guess writing this is a start, right?
I was doing alot of thinking while painting today about Excuse makers. We are probably all a little guilty to some extent. It’s only when you let excuses keep you from accomplishing your goals, living your life, letting you love, or becoming a better you, is it really a problem. What would happen if we said yes every time we got the inclination to make an excuse for why we can’t. Can you imagine the possibilities!
I realized today that Excuse Takers are just as bad as the Excuse Makers. Excuse Takers are those of us who enable the Excuse Makers. We let them make their excuses why they can’t treat us the way they should, why they don’t do what they say they will, and let them off the hook for bad behavior. We are not doing these people a favor either. People will treat you how you demand to be treated. So if someone is not treating you the way they should be, why are you letting them? You are only giving your power away if you are an Excuse Taker.
