"It's hard to breathe life into a dream, when you're choking on excuses.

When I find myself finding excuses NOT to do what I KNOW I need to be doing to further the progression of achieving my dreams, I refer to a poem I had to learn during my process of becoming an Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman...

It's called "Excuses" and it says:

"Excuses are monuments of nothing.

They build bridges to nowhere.

Those who choose to use these tools of incompetence become matters of nothingness themselves."

If you're Greek, you know there are various versions we all learn. However, the concept is the same. Excuses are nothing, but can and will keep you from something, and that is being the best YOU you can be and achieving your dreams.

Those are your Pearls of Wisdom, Texarkana. Go WIN THE DAY!
