Excuses

Why do people let so many opportunities pass them by? People sit and soak in misery. Complaining about all the things they don’t have. Wishing for things to be different.

Maybe if I were pushed more as a child to do better in school I’d be making more money. I wish my teachers were better teachers that made me want to excel. If I had money I can help more. If my job cared more about their employees I’d make more.

Well, how many of you think this way? All the if’s and but’s. Our society is filled with blame and people love to point fingers. We are extremely intelligent life beings but at the same time, we just don’t have a clue.

OK, as children, we look to our parents and the world in general to teach us life skills. Sometimes, we’re cut short.  People fail us in our lives. Our expectations aren’t met with the highest efforts possible. And now, you’re grown, but not fully. You may have aged, you may be on your own, maybe even with a family of your own.  But,  MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY, you are still young and naive. Your past may be your past, but it still plays a role in your present.

Are you one of those people? Making excuses and offering reasons why you aren’t as accomplished? Why you lack affection with your children? Or even why you think you’re better than others. We come from all walks of life. Our past does help mold us into who we become as adults. But does it completely? Does your past define entirely who you are? I think it’s a part of it, but I don’t believe it is ALL of you.

So…what if you are that person who blames your past for your present? Making excuses after excuses. Look in the mirror and be honest with yourself.  If you’ve come to the conclusion you are, then how are you going to change it?

Hey, I’m guilty of this as well. I am working everyday towards changing things that I don’t want to be. There are some things that are harder to overcome than others. The first step is to realize it and accept it.  From there, analyze it, break into the core and dissect the heck out of it. Then, ask all the questions. Why did this happen to me, why did it happen this way? What could I or they have done different. Did you really have control of the things that happened? Are these things still really controlling you? The way you think, the way you behave? And even the bigger question, do you still want this to have control over you?

Holding on to the bitter past can do a remarkable amount of damage to the spirit. Not to mention your heart and soul. Even your mind can become unconsciously bias and just plain stupid due to the events that life has unwrapped for you.

You eventually come to a place where enough is enough.  Are you ready to change your life? Change your ways? Are you ready to let go and be who you want and desire to be?  We cannot control everything, but we can try our hardiest to control who we are.

It’s up to you my friends, and ALL on you. No more excuses.

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken.

  1. It’s easy to blame others but it definitely takes maturity and humility to look inward and make real changes. That’s where the real rewards are! I would much rather make the changes that I need to and experience growth and success than suck out the positive energy from all around me.

  2. Someone essentially help to make seriously posts I would state. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and thus far? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular publish incredible. Great job!
