What’s Holding You Back?

Do you have dreams? Ambitions? Goals? How are you doing on making them reality? Me…I got plenty of those swirling around in this crazy head of mine. But I’m not fairing so well on making them reality. It’s not but my own fault though. Not blaming anything or anyone but myself.

Just as we find a way to justify anything we do (right or wrong), in the same breath we make excuses for why we cannot move forward and make things happen.

Here are a few excuses I’ve used for my hesitation on making dreams come true, and even for simple chores that require my attention. What are your excuses?

Timing just isn’t right.

I need to make a more money.

I’ll wait until the weekend.

I lost my inspiration.

Next year would be better. Yes, definitely next year.

When I lose weight.

I can’t.

When I get in shape.

I need a husband.

It’s too cold.

Next long weekend. I’ll do it then.

Rough day.

My head isn’t in the game.

I’m really tired.

I can’t.

Lost my inspiration.

I deserve to have some time off.

I can’t think.

Maybe in the fall.

I just can’t.

We can justify and rationalize anything we do that borders on being wrong. We can talk ourselves (and often others) into most anything.

But maybe, just maybe, the only thing holding us back is simply our own mind.

The mind is one of the most powerful gifts bestowed upon us humans. Most of us don’t tap into the possibilities. It is powerful enough to make us or break us.

Hopefully, we quit bridling the mind and let it work as it was designed. And then give God the glory.

This year is the year of change. I’ve already begun my new journey and I’m really happy so far…even with this glitch of illness right now. I’m still moving forward. I’m going to do my best to unbridle this mind of mine and stop binding it with “I can’t”.

I hope you allow your mind to open up wonderful opportunities for your life. Accomplish great things in 2023! ♥️

  1. I love the picture with the horse tied to the light plastic chair! In my post yesterday, I had a picture of a person chained to a HUGE ball, dragging it through sand. Both can be overcome with Jesus! I have a few more good excuses for us to try: My roots were showing, and I have to keep my hair appointment because I look like a mess. I’m experiencing traumatic stress from a large spider found in my home. I have to stay home to deal with the spider. The ozone in the air flattened my tires. I used these, along with some others, in a post of excuses people gave for not showing up to work!
