BYBS : A Beautiful Excuse

(To join Blog Your Blessings Sunday, and get your name on the blogroll, click on the banner above and follow the simple instructions.)

There are some things that we all know about life. Yet, sadly, it is rarely that we practice what we know, or make a good habit a part of our lives. It is as if the good habits are for others, while for us there is just one word - excuse!

We have an excuse for almost everything...

If you are thinking that this is another one of those holier-than-thou posts that I often get criticized for, you could not be more wrong. In fact, this post is just the opposite. Here, I am going to shower many praises on The Excuse.

These days I have an excuse for getting up late in the morning, an excuse for not working out, an excuse for eating as much as I like all day long, and an excuse for not doing anything constructive at all. The excuse is that I am home, on a three day break, for Diwali, one of the most celebrated of Indian festivals. I will be posting more about the festival on the day itself (Tuesday), but till that day, I am just going to use it as an excuse to do nothing, but take a break and, as they say, chill out!

Hope you all have a great day!

Excuse or not, the ability to "chill out" is a blessing unto itself!

Yes I believe that we all have an excuse for everything we do or not do. I just joined and my 1st entry is up!

what an insight!
I've never thought that excuses are blessings. although people says not to make excuses, i think excuses is a way to realize that life is something precious enough to enjoy, not just constant obligations to do:)
thank's for sharing this meme.
Sorry for missing BYBS this week. My life has been complicated these few past days.. :).

Excuses can be a blessing, and I can think of none better then celebrating Diwali something I learned about from an old friend at work. And the sweets his wife made for this beautiful festival were awesome!!!

I look forward to reading about Diwali --in fact, I can't wait for you and will go look it up. Sounds like a blessing for many! It was so good to see you making the rounds once again -- have missed you visiting around. So, Diwali is a blessing to me too!
