“Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.” — Earl Nightingale
As a drunk I was the king of excuses. I had to learn to break the habit of excusing myself through everything. I learned the “Excusers are Losers”! Now that is a bit rough, yet I had to be rough on myself to get the courage to do it anyway! I had not finished college, I had spent 6 years working on a 4 year degree. Partying always had priority. So after 2 years in recovery I decided to go back to school, I took a couple of classes. But then I realized if I was gonna do it I needed to simply do it! So I went for it full-time, and low and behold I completed.
Believe me I had every excuse imaginable to back me up. I was married, I needed to work full-time, we had a baby on the way and I needed my recovery support. How would I fit it all in and sleep? Where there is a will there is a way. Everything fell into place. But it only aligned when I put the effort in and actually did it anyway!
Go, Go, Go…
