What Is Your Excuse?

I am too old.


I am too tired.


It's too late.


I've a loan to pay off.


My parents will kill me if I do this.


My family depends on me for their bread and butter.


I don't have the finances.


I have no time.


I don't think I am good enough to do it.


I am sure it will flop and backfire.


I think there's too much competition.


I cannot afford it.


I am not sure if I want to do this or if I want to do that.


I think this stuff belongs to the books.


I feel it's easy for you to say it because you are not in my situation.


I am too lazy.


What's your excuse for not chasing your dream until its completely yours?

The write up seemed wonderful but now that the author asserts, she is not the mortal kind (immortal as she puts it) makes us the lesser mortals believe,"Well thats the way of life!"

@anon: how would ur answer change if you knew you were immortal too?

Perhaps had I been immortal, I would be above all weaknesses of the mortals and hence no excuses would be required to be served.
