Excuses are the ultimate enemy of progress.The reality is that there are no excuses when you are aspiring to achieve a goal. Blogging is something I have always had a passion for. I created my first blog back in 2011 when I was in high school. Looking back, I find it almost hard to believe that I’ve had a blog for 5 years. Unfortunately, I didn’t stay consistent with my posting. I was literally the queen of excuses. My friends would ask about my blog and why I was not posting and I would answer with one of the following:
1.I don’t have a professional camera
2.I don’t have any one to take my pics
3.School is way too hectic.
4.Blogging is too common now, everyone is doing it
5.I don’t have time
Looking back at the excuses I was making, I realized that those were not valid reasons and I found ways to counter them:
1. I don’t have a professional camera- save your money and invest in one, rent one, use what you have
2. No one to take my pics- ask around, photographers are all over social media and on campus
3. School is too busy- make time on the weekends to work on your blog
4.Blogging is too common- Who Cares ! Do what makes you happy
5. I don’t have time- Lies ! 24 hours in a day. Beyonce has the same 24 hours. Reduce your sleep
I would try to make myself feel better about ignoring my goals by making excuses aka lies but in reality I was hindering myself from doing what I loved. The truth is that there is always a way. The way may not be easy but nothing good comes easy. Sometimes it takes staying up a extra hours at night to accomplish your goals. At the end of the day it all comes down to sacrifice. If you want to do something you have to go out there and do it. What is stopping you? Only yourself.
As I start my journey over with this new blogging platform,my goal is to stop making excuses for not doing what I love !
