Top 5: Excuses We Tell Ourselves

I’m too old

This is probably the most annoying one for me. But what’s even more annoying is that when people say that they can’t do but that I can. Too be honest, if we kept telling ourselves that we are too old for anything…we really are just wasting time. And when we waste time, eventually we do get to old. A 40-year-old single man told me he was too old to go back to school. When I went to college, I had a friend in her early 40’s and who had 5 kinds. Now, I don’t know what happened to her but I admire that despite her circumstances she went for it.

So guys, don’t say you are too old for anything. Age is just a number and if age doesn’t matter…”What are you waiting for? You’re wasting time

I’m too busy

I’m just going to say this. Stop watching your favorite TV shows. I know you always make time for that.

I don’t have enough money

I completely understand that sometimes you may not have the funds to do whatever you want.

But I am talking about you guys who spend your money on alcohol, expensive gym memberships, designer purses and drive luxury cars. If you have these things, you have money but you be spending it on the wrong things.

I’m bad at this…thus, I can’t do this

I must admit that I am guilty of this. Sometimes if I feel defeated I find ways to justify why I can’t do this or do that.

For example, in high school I hated math and science. Like, I serious despised that shit. I remember when I took chemistry my second year in high school I promised myself that I would never take another chemistry class again. And you know what?!???! I broke that promise 😀

I went to go study Microbiology in which I had to take a shit ton of chemistry courses (ironically more than the actually microbiology courses). I took 3+ years worth of chemistry. Was it easy? Hell no! But I did and was even in the honors program at my school

I can’t do this because so-and-so needs me

You should ask yourself this. Are you really that important? Or do you think are that important?

    ugh, the too old one. I really struggle with this because my mother was always saying she was too old for things. In retrospect she was like…26 lol

      I believe you 🙂 Remember when you were younger and you were “too young” to do certain things? What happens when you are “too old”? then its too late…
