I am blessed with God-given gifts I am proud of and are part of who I am. But one thing I have mastered on my own is the gift of making excuses. This is not a skill I am proud of.

How many times do you start a project and don’t finish it?

How many times do you complain about something not being right in your world and yet you do nothing to change it?

If you are like me, your answers to these questions may make you cringe because when you are honest with yourself, it is not good. If this resonates with you, I am here to tell you, you are not alone!

There are things in my world I can tackle and complete with ease. I love these tasks and/or projects. They make me feel good because I have accomplished something I set out to do.

But, on the other hand, there are other things I start and never finish. As well as, there are things that take FOREVER to start because I cannot ‘get in the right frame of mind’ to even begin. When I look back at any of these situations, the Master of Excuses in me is shining bright.
