I’m a fairly motivated person and I’m not usually one to find myself making excuses. And I very rarely give an excuse not to work out- I just love it too much.
But I’m human and every now and again I throw a few excuses around
I thought it’d be fun to pile a few of my excuses together in one post and hear some of your most used too. But I won’t tell you what I use these excuses for… that’s up to you imagination haha!
It’s not time yet.
I’m too tired.
I can’t find anything I want.
I have plenty of time to do it.
I DON’T want to do it.
But I don’t get it.
I can’t be stuffed.
What’s the point?
You know what I could go on for days with these excuses. And I could use these non stop, but where would I find myself? Nowhere.
Excuses are a waste of space and in a way you’re lying to yourself when you use them. Why not just say the truth.
Instead of saying I have plenty of time to do it, admit what it is that you want. Maybe you want to read a book or watch a movie. What’s the harm in that?
It’s almost as if we would prefer to lie to ourselves than admit that we need a break, we need that downtime.
I’m guessing that has a lot to do with the values we’ve had engrossed into us- when you’re not doing something you’re being lazy and suddenly your worth drops.
But I’m here to say that it’s okay- take a break, have what you want, squeeze in a quick nap.
Don’t use an excuse, you’re really just lying to yourself. Use the truth.
And the truth is, sometimes I just don’t want to study. Sometimes I’m exhausted. And sometimes I don’t want to eat either.
For only when we admit the truth can we possibly stop the excuses.
What’s your excuse?
