When Does A REASON become An EXCUSE?
Friday, October 02, 2009
As I was doing my daily walk yesterday, I pondered many aspects over the last year since October 13 is the anniversary of this lifestyle change. Never been a lazy person, but I realized that while making changes in eating choices, I had good "reasons" when I slipped and fell off the program. Sure, it's been a very tough couple of years, but life happens and I've never been a person to hide from adversity. However, I remembered the month of August when my reasons suddenly became excuses. Crutches that helped me get a bit lazy in the way I thought and acted toward healthy eating. I think it's something I have to be aware of in the future - when a good reason becomes an excuse that leads to laziness. A reason - something valid that substantiates why or why not I do something. An excuse - a whine about why or why not I do something in order to escape from what will be in my best interest and quality of life. No more excuses!
