Yes, but……

You’ve probably made your list, either on paper or in your head, of what you want to accomplish in 2012. You might call them goals, or resolutions, but the intention is the same. Some of them might be carry-overs from 2011, and that’s OK.

Often, after we do that, a well-meaning friend, or the news, or our ego (which some people believe stands for Edging God Out) will remind us of all the reasons why those wonderful things couldn’t possibly happen. And often, after we get those messages or ideas, we accept them as our truth. The reasons why wind up being excuses.

Our reasons / excuses may have been with us for a long time. Perhaps your goal or resolution is to finally stand in your truth and change the dynamics of a relationship that no longer serves you. But you might have been taught that children should be seen and not heard. We are someone’s child, no matter how old we are. Or that the meek shall inherit the earth, which could be used as a reason / excuse for playing small.

But what if we looked at it all and made the decision to change what needed to be changed? Click on the link below to listen to my talk entitled, “Yes, but…”
