Choose your excuses.
Often my clients will say I just couldn't follow my plan- things kept getting pushed on my schedule.
There are many things to blame- people needing you, fires to be put out, etc. and we abdicate responsibility to those people and things.
But this is both untrue and disempowering.
Of course things come up, but owning that you choose those things over your plan is important to your self trust.
It's owning your power of discernment.
The truth is that you can say yes or no to anything and you can own which you choose.
That is your freedom.
That is your power.
