I Don’t Want to Hear It!

change

This is just how I am feeling today. I am so sick of listening to excuses:

August 5, 2013  

 " CHANGE: Don't just talk about it, go out there and do it. Don't just meditate about it, go out there and create it. Don't just pray about it go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer. If you want change, get out there and live it."

Steve Maraboli

  2. I am so bad about not wanting to hear excuses, myself. Sometimes I can really come off as harsh and unfeeling. I guess I am just impatient with wanting people to be whatever it is they are supposed to be and don't want to have to wait around with the rest of the world to see what talent lurks under the ass-sitting and whining.
    I am kind of an energy ball myself so maybe that's why I just don't get excuses and what they're good for. I find that most things I am worried about or not looking forward to are over before I know it and then I wonder what the heck all the fuss was about, so I don't like to bother with that part much. I'd much rather skip it and get on with things!

  4. You're right: Take action! I did it.
    Since long I've been harassed by an male elderly reader, an opera fan who is extremely self-righteous and anti-women. An absolute loser! This person has used many different pseudonyms, often left disturbing comments which missed the subject totally. So I didn't post his comments and aksed him to use a pseudonym. He went mad and cursed me. So I asked him not to appear on my blog. All in vain. He felt and feels insulted and sended me harassing messages everyday. I had tolerated this person too long, but not any longer. Yesterday I took action. I posted this issue for the first time on my blog and explained the reason why anonymous comments are not allowed anymore. This morning I didn't get a massage from this cyber-stalker for the first time since long.

  5. Absolutely right. My mom asked me yesterday, "Have you heard from JJ and Carol about rescheduling lunch?" I told her that I hadn't AND JJ hasn't even been blogging as much as usual. Kinda forgot about the whole thing until I read this post. We really need to get together and schedule a lunch or dinner soon. We live so close to one another that it is crazy not to put more effort into getting together! We miss you!!!!
