Let’s Do This!

startThose who really want to accomplish something will find a way; those who are not committed will find an excuse.

When you make excuses about why things didn’t get done, or create obstacles to use as an excuse to give up on that project, diet, or exercise routine the only person you are really hurting is yourself, right?  Wrong.  Like it or not we are all part of a community of sorts.  We each have friends, co-workers, and family members in our lives that pay attention to our choices and decisions.  What you do and don’t do, affects the people around you.

 Someone who make excuses about meeting deadlines, or personal goals rarely exceeds anywhere else.  I know for me I have to be careful because the excuses try to slip in there unnoticed when I least expect it.  “I can’t go jogging tonight, it got dark outside too quick,” or “I wound up running errands for other people the last few days and it threw me off my whole routine.”

 Life happens, accidents, incidents, whatever might come up can either be worked in, worked around, or incorporated into daily routines if you are really committed to a positive goal.

 Let’s make 2013 a year when we reach our goals.  Let’s make it a year of encouragement for the people around us, the year to do random acts of kindness and start something good. 

 I am determined to do some charity walks this year so I have started training to be able to reach those goals.  It’s something I used to do quite often, but it’s been awhile.  I look forward to doing my part, to giving back, to raising money for good causes and most of all, I look forward to crossing the finish line and knowing I stuck in there and made it! 

 2013 is going to be a great year!  Let’s do this!

  1. Good to hear it makes me happy that so many people participate in charity walks 🙂 I wish you the best in the new year!

  2. Your words are so true. Every year my family participates in a pancreatic cancer walk in memory of my mom. But I’ve made excuses for not doing other things and it is time to get moving. Great post.

    • I am excited about walking again. I haven’t done it in a long while. I am starting now and building up – I walked 2 miles today. It’s not about a marathon, it’s about supporting a cause, getting healthy and doing something for others. Love it!

  3. “Misery Loves Company” .. when people post funny comics on their Facebook pages that display acts of laziness or excuses.. that reverberates. So I try not to make jokes about my shortfalls because I know I lot of people look up to me for motivation and inspiration.. like I’m some type of endurance superhero. I’m not.. I just love to do it. it’s easier when you love it. Great post! I caught the vibe!
