“If it’s important, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.” -Daniel Decker.
That quote is one that really puts a burr in peoples’ saddles. ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?! I’M OFFENDED!
But really, it’s true. Managing your home well is important. But, I’ve also been in the place where it’s easy to excuse why I’m not managing well:
- Wellllllllllllllllllll, life is just so busy right now. I’ll do better later. (News flash – most of us have super busy lives)
- No one will help me out! So, I just won’t do it at all. See how they like THOSE apples!
- I’m pregnant and good for nothing. Okay, so this one is a great “excuse.” Nevermind.
- I’ve got toddlers – so there really is no point in me trying to keep an orderly house. My 2 year old will just eat the potpourri. (Coming from ME, a mother with a crazy-pants toddler on the loose.)
