No Excuses... by Jada

We are all travelers on this journey called life.  Each individual experiences life in many different ways, with a myriad of personal beliefs and perceptions. 

What do you believe?  What do you perceive about your life, your journey?  

Do you feel justified, make no apologies for who or what you are today because of something that happened yesterday, in your past, something out of your control? 

What if all of that could change?

I love Carol Tuttle’s book, Remembering Wholeness.  In it she states, “One of the greatest powers in healing that we have is the ability to change our perception… We usually only have to make something a big deal if we want to be right more than we want to be happy.”

We are too tired to exercise, too busy to eat healthy, too offended to forgive, too damaged by a horrible childhood to take responsibility for adulthood. 

Sure, everyone has excuses.  A lot of us may have very valid excuses.  But, do we want to be RIGHT or do we want to be HAPPY?  What do you desire?

Dallin H. Oaks once said, “Desires dictate our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions.  The desires we act on determine our changing, our achieving, our becoming.”

Now is the time to prioritize change.  No excuses.
