Excuses

If you think about it, most of us use some kind of excuse every day. We all make excuses for things we were supposed to do or things we planned to do, but didn't, or excuses to get out of things we just plain don't want to do. We make excuses to get ourselves out of trouble and to justify our laziness or our inability to perform. Sometimes, excuses are just to make us feel better about ourselves. If you can honestly get through a single day without using an excuse, either to someone else or to yourself, then you are a unique individual.

G and I were talking about it last night, and we decided to write a book about excuses and how they sometimes control our lives. It's just a project we will use to give the non-fiction genre / self-help genre a try to see if we are capable of writing a book together that might get published.

As for my own personal journey, I am going to do my best to not use any lame excuses today. :) We'll see how it goes.

I always feel like I have to use an excuse (even a made-up one) if I'm not able to help someone out when they ask. I feel worse about saying no to someone than I do lying to them...how screwed up is that???
