The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Caged in Defeat

The other day I was on Pinterest and ran across this quote:

The Recovering Pessimist: Caged in Defeat -- Making excuses for why you can't achieve greatness leaves you trapped in a cage. | www.therecoveringpessimist.me #amwriting #recoveringpessimist

The quote struck a nerve. It was a reminder that life is short. Very short. So short that oftentimes we forget that we neglect to do the things we want to do. We make excuses for why we don’t get these things done.

I don’t have the time.

I’ll do it later. 

I won’t have the money. 

I can’t stop working.

These excuses keep us trapped like birds in a cage. The idea of actually living our lives the way we want to seems like an unfulfilled dream. I woke up, went to work, came home, went to bed, and repeated the next day. That ain’t living.

Step out of that cage. Stretch your wings, take a deep breath, and realize that there is so much more to life than punching a clock. Find the resources to get your goals accomplished.

You're supposed to work to live, not the other way around. Click To Tweet
