Explanations and Excuses

Hey, friend!

I used a quote today that my former boss once shared with me: "Know the difference between explanations and excuses."

I'll never forget the first time I heard that... and I think of it often. Not only has it helped me give grace to some and set boundaries with others, but it's also caused me to challenge myself in every situation.

There are days I just don't feel like "doing the work..." and that's totally okay. But, at some point, if I want to grow and achieve the goals in my life, I have to be aware of the moment my explanations morph into excuses.

It's not always easy. I don't always pay close enough attention to my own motivation, or lack thereof, to make a long-lasting effective decision... but eventually, I kick my butt into gear. 

I'm such a huge promoter and advocate of self-care, self-worth, self-love, etc... but sometimes the best method for each of those things requires us to get uncomfortable.

Don't ever be hard on yourself... just do whatever it takes to be the best version of you that you can be... even if it starts off a little difficult.

I can't be that me without Him, that's for sure. And I'm forever grateful for the amazing connections He's placed in my life to help me grow!
