Nothing irritates me more when it comes to those around me then when I can easily see the answer to their problems and it has everything to do with them. If they come to me complaining about not being able to do something and the solution is sit your behind down and do it, that there is nothing that is stopping you other than yourself it drives me to the brink of madness.
I know there are some people that will say that is harsh. However, hear me out. The reason why these things do that to me is because I see in others around me the same things that I do. It is easy for me to see them putting off their wants under a pile of excuses because I do the same thing.
I make myself cray doing this. There is always a laundry list of reasons why I can’t write, or I often go to the hubby man and I’m like…I don’t know why I can’t write. It just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe it is the genre or the book or….
Do you see it now? The only thing that is stopping me from accomplishing my writing is me.
For the first time, the hubby man looked me in the eyes today and was all, you know good and well what your problem is. You need to stop making excuses and get to work. That is how you write.
I know there are many people that would be horribly offended by that. Me? I’m grateful. It was that swift kick in my posterior that I needed.
He is right. He is absolutely right. I know if he reads this he will gloat over that fact.
I am my own problem and there is nothing else in the way of getting my work done other than pure laziness. I need to sit down and get my writing done. There is nothing else that is the problem.
It doesn’t matter how I dress up the excuse in pretty bows, ribbons, and papers. At the end of the day, it is just that AN EXCUSE.
Needless to say, him laying it all out for me has me digging into my work once more. There are so many things I want to do for me and none of it will be possible if I don’t sit down and get my work done.
So, here is to refocusing once more and creating more discipline in my life.
No more excuses.
Remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
