Excuses. We all make them. We make them for everything all the time without even realizing it, pointing the finger at someone or something else, anything or anyone but ourselves. However, when we continue to make excuses and blame others, we are actually giving our power away.

Today, is the day you stop telling yourself that you have no control over your behavior, your decisions, your life, and your feelings. Today, is the day that you begin to recognize that when you blame others for what you are going through, you in reality avoid taking responsibility and perpetuate the problem.

Excuses hold you back from being the best you can be, from being honest with yourself and living your authentic life. Today begin to practice being honest with yourself about your choices and your life and realize that you are in control of your own happiness. The only way you can truly be happy is to realize that your thoughts, emotions, actions, and decisions are your responsibility and no one else’s. That is a beautiful thing. No more excuses. No more blame. Just the choice to take your power back and start living and loving your life.


Just for today, I am a decisive and productive person. I follow through with tasks that I start and make no excuses. I appreciate all that I do. I am good enough just as I am. I speak up for myself. I ask for what I want. I claim my power now and consciously create the life I desire. And so it is.
