It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.

Words of wisdom from a seasoned wizard.
Have a great week.
Change, whether it is associated with your virtues, your accomplishments, or your abilities, does not magically appear.
Change occurs as a result of action.
It’s Monday. Make no excuses.
Quotes about eXcuses
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anyone else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. ~Henry Ward Beecher
There is no such thing as a list of reasons. There is either one sufficient reason or a list of excuses. ~Robert Brault
We have more ability than will power, and it is often an excuse to ourselves that we imagine that things are impossible. ~François de la Rochefoucauld
Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts. ~Edward R. Murrow
I’m a huge recycler. HUGE. Plastic bottles, aluminum cans, chip board, paper bags. Anything that has the potential for a second life, I try to put back into play. It’s important to me. And, if I’m being honest, I can be a little obsessive…I even recycle on vacation.
So, it comes as no surprise that here I am, at the end of the year, ready to dust off last year’s resolutions and reinstate them as the new goals for the upcoming year. Yep, I’m recycling my resolutions.
I’m not embarrassed to say that I’ve had the same list for a couple of years. Life’s an ongoing battle to improve one’s self. And having the same list either means I’ve discovered what’s important or that I’m a horrible failure. I choose to believe I’ve discovered what’s important. But it’s interesting how the goals remain the same while the challenges associated with reaching each individual target changes.
In 2014, I’ll take another crack at those standing resolutions. And if I don’t achieve them, I’ll just recycle. Again.
Happy New Year. (And good luck with your resolutions, new or recycled.)
