And then there were none
And her heart won over
The trust it had sought
Her knowing that she is safe
In her body
In her mind

How many times have we been told to stop making excuses? And what if the excuses we’re making can’t be changed by simply changing our behavior – or even our thoughts?
Then we beat ourselves up for making excuses about why we can’t change and we still can’t seem to find a better way.
What if it’s not always about excuses? What if it’s deeper than that?
Feeling unsafe is not an excuse. It’s a survival instinct.
Feeling out of place in a world that creates specific boxes for “how to be” is not an excuse. It’s a valid reason why so many of us don’t see a path to success.
Feeling like we can’t trust ourselves or the environment around us is not an excuse if we’ve been shown time and again these things can’t be trusted.
What if we let go of excuses and accepted our feelings just as they are? What then would be able to flow?
