The excuse

There always seems to be the excuse. The reason why we don’t seek change. The reason why we stay in place. The reason why we don’t challenge ourselves. The excuse. It is always clever, sounds sincere , appears thoughtful yet is still the excuse to not step out of our comfort zone and live the […]
