Make Sh!t Happen



Maybe it is the fact that I am getting older. Maybe it is because life happens whether I am living or not! Maybe it  is just the fact that I have 3 children that look to me as a role model.  Maybe it is because  my mind is  focused on achieving certain goals. Or maybe I really want my dreams of  building a successful non-profit organization to come true.  But I have no time for excuses.

My mom used to tell me when I would tell her I wanted something "Want in one hand and shit in the other. Which one you think will fill up faster."  I would get so annoyed.  And NOW I tell my kids the same thing.  LOL! Really think about it.  It makes perfect sense.  You have to make shit happen!  Just wanting isn't enough.  You either have to earn it or you have to get it.  

I have spent way too much of my life believing people's word and justifying my disappointment in their lack of action, because I really wanted it to happen.  I even made myself believe my own excuses, because it was easier to deal with not getting things done. Listen don't get me wrong things come up, we get side tracked.  But instead of making up an excuse as to why it didn't happen and just giving up, we have to take accountability and make it happen no matter what!  

So take a moment to reflect on something or things that you want.  It could be losing a few pounds, or taking a vacation you have been dreaming about.  Stop making excuses, don't wait for that friend who says they will go to the gym with you.  Go get yourself a piggy bank and start dropping your change in it and go on that vacation.  Whatever it is!  MAKE SHIT HAPPEN!!!!!!
