“When someone really cares about you, they make an effort, not an excuse.”
Do you ever get sick of excuses? I do.
Of course, there are people in this world who are likely tired of my excuses:(
We are not perfect, we all mess up. But, I think effort is THE most important thing.
Although the quote is talking about relationship effort, I think it is applicable to all effort.
As the kids are heading into the final term of school – I keep reminding them of the effort they need to put in.
In the past few weeks I don’t know how many times we have talked about “how life is hard”. You have to put hard work into it. Hard work into school, jobs, cleaning your room:), and relationships. Very little in life that is worth it is easy. Another little tip I have told them is sometimes that the hard work that you put in NOW will save you from a lot of REALLY hard work later (the whole ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure idea).
I’m also a big believer in work hard, play hard too…
So lets push forward, more effort, less excuses – for us all – in all areas of our lives.
