I copied this from Sparkpeople website. Motivational reading helps me so I thought I would share this one. I do have to stop frequently and ask myself "why don't I have time to accomplish a goal?" Maybe today is a good time for me to change my outlook a bit. "Are you your own obstacle? Are you trying to stick to a fitness plan, improve a relationship, eliminate fast food from your diet, or be a better parent? Whatever your goal, was there a time when you thought you couldn't do it? This is a natural reaction when things get tough. It's easier to find ways to justify your actions than to get over the hurdle. This week, eliminate the hurdles and barriers you've created. If you find yourself saying, "I can't" or "I don't have time," then re-analyze your goal. If you really want to achieve it, then make the time or take a different approach (get up earlier, stay organized, learn the skills). Find time for you and your goals."
