11/14/11 – Excuses


“If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.”

There are some things in life that I just WON’T miss, I REFUSE!  No matter what I have to do to make it work, I will. This actually happened a few times this year. Two of my bestest friends in this world got married (for which I couldn’t be happier by the way) and I wasn’t going to miss the bachelorette parties or weddings. No way, not an option! They mean too much to me not to be a part of their special days, so I found a way. Maybe money was tight, maybe my bosses got a little upset (sorry about that guys) but those reasons weren’t going to keep me from being there.

But it’s not just events like this that this quote refers to. There are some things I shouldn’t allow myself to miss other than weddings and parties, like THE GYM! My trainer actually posted this quote on Facebook this weekend and i couldn’t relate more when it comes to fitness. There were so many times the past few years when my health, for who knows what reason, wasn’t as important to me and I found excuses not to work out, I think we all do this. But then I had to take a step back and think to myself, “Wow, that is an AWFUL excuse and really only an excuse. Do I want to be healthy? Do I want to feel good about myself? Well then I have to find a way to make it happen because I know that it is truly important to me.”

So glad he posted this. It applies to ALL areas of life: Personal, Financial, Professional, etc. Thanks for the reminder, Cody!
