Excuses - we've all made them, under the guise of legitimate reasons and we've fooled ourselves into thinking they're true. There's this youtube video doing the rounds at the moment where four friends sit around a table. One of them is asking each of the other three if they're going to attend his party that weekend. One says he can't because he's going to be out of town looking after his grandma. Another says he can't because he's gotta stay at home and pet-sit for his brother. The third one says nope, he's not going simply because he doesn't want to, lol. The other two, of course, cooked up excuses as to why they weren't going, while the last one just stated that he didn't have one and gave the real reason.⠀
We love to hide behind excuses...why we want to hang onto a relationship that's way past its use-by date. Or a friendship that has gone stale. Or a job that's lost its lustre of excitement and become more of a chore. But the real reason is fear of change, fear of the unknown and fear of starting all over again. We deny admitting to this fear because we don't want to lose face or we don't want to admit failure. Instead we make up a rational explanation, as to why we haven't found the courage to take the leap and pursue our dreams. I've done this, you've done this, everyone has done this. But a lot of us have learned to avoid repeating it after a certain time. Because although we may avoid telling others, we can't really deny it from ourselves. It will continue to niggle and dig away in the back of our minds, until we finally acknowledge that we've had enough of the charade...one we've created to boot.⠀
The beauty of this time, of course, is that the energy supports the realisation of our desires swift and fast. Complex ones still take time, but that means you just gotta double your focus. The Universe supports an energy exchange that is like-for-like, so you gotta invest as much as you wanna receive. Starting with your belief. Woohoo!⠀
