"Excuses Begone"

I have borrowed a wonderful book from "Angel Michelle" called "Excuses Begone" by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer" and it is one of the most fascinating books I have read in quite a while. I am enjoying all of the principles I have read so far, but the one that has resonated most with me is "The Third Principle NOW". It is all about living in the now as that is all that we have. Whether things happened in the past or will happen in the future they really still only happened in the NOW. One quote that really says it all for me is - "The real issue is how you choose to use up the precious moments of your life". We really should make the most of every second we have on the earth at this time, because as I have said on many occasion "This Isn't Practice Run"!!!! That is one of the reasons I am making the venture into my jewellery design, it is something I have wanted to do for a long time and "NOW" is the time to "DO IT".


  1. I personally adore Wayne Dyer as well, his writing touches, motivates, and inspires me! He is such a realist, it is in how we choose to live our lives that makes such a tremendous difference. We have choices as to live in the here or the now or in our tomorrows or yesterdays.
    I have heard it said that "If you have one foot in yesterday and the other foot in tomorrow, you are peeing on today." Ok peeing wasn't the exact word but I am being politically correct in my comment! lol
    Have a wonderful here and now. I love seeing that you are being creative and you are not only thinking of doing something you admire doing, you are doing it! You go girl! :-)
    My education does for me what your crativity does for you! And it feels good, exhausting but good!

  2. Davine, I am smiling after reading your post. I love that we can both read this amazing book and be drawn to such different parts. I, too, loved the "Now" principle, but especially connected with the "Willingness" concept - 'are you willing to give up your un-willingnesses?'. Very good question! Looking forward to discussing the Excuses Begone! concept further!


I would love to hear your comments.
