Excuse vs. Reason

“The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse.” ~Author Unknown

The line between an excuse and a reason is a very thin one. It’s not even a difficult task to tell the difference.  Social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, etc. make it even easier.

Everyone has legitimate reasons for not doing things.  However, a reason quickly becomes merely an excuse when it is inconsistent with a person’s other actions.  In order for a reason to remain a reason and not become an excuse, it really has to apply to everyone/everything.  I guess it’s hard for people to keep up with what they’re saying AND what they’re doing.  It’s still amusing to watch, though.
