Progress or excuses

Ive mentioned when I’m feeling low I listen to a lot of self-help podcasts. Another thing I do is read a lot. Usually with a protagonist who has suffered loss. I’m going to keep this post short due to time restraints and because there’s not a lot to be justified or explained.

I’ve seen a common thread in all of this which is people can either progress or they can make excuses to remain the same. I am hurt, I’m sad and I think I’ve nailed the woe is me down pretty tightly. However, I don’t think I make excuses. But perhaps objectively I do. Especially when I’m the center of the decision. I’m awkward, freeze up, and tend to dance around what is really being brought to my attention. But I also think I’m a decisive person. Ugh, now I’m being fickle.

How do you have the life balance of progress and excuses? I have a 7 hour drive back to Montgomery to think about it.

    This isn’t like driving somewhere….where you can go, “It’s 420 miles. If I do 60 miles per hour, I’ll be there in 7 hours.”
