to prove or show to be just, right, or reasonable
Excuse (and excuses) may be convenient to hide behind but what we are really doing is trying to justify a certain decision and/or behavior. More often than not, we justify things to our self more so than to someone else.
Last night and this morning I did just that. I had everything ready and was going to be in bed around 9:30. Then (as I had asked) my Dad called to talk about a couple things. Before I knew it, it was 11:00. And with a 4:30 alarm already set, I changed it to my normal time because I "needed to get more sleep".
Now...too often when we make excuses or try to justify something we tend to have a selective and short term memory. See, this last weekend while at Disney World I got about 5 hours of sleep each on Friday and Saturday nights.
....and now I was complaining about "only" getting 6-6.5?
The next time you start making excuses or trying to justify something to yourself, stop for a moment and think. You might just find that you're about to say something stupid to yourself.
