New Year – Motivation

New Year Motivation

New Year – Motivation!

Welcome to 2018, y’all!

It’s the time of the year of new-ness. I like to think of it as a turning of the page, a new chapter, a new book. The possibilities before you are endless. There are things out there you want to make better, want to try for the first time. I’m here to tell you to GO FOR IT!

Time is our worst enemy. We don’t know how much is left. If you want to write. WRITE! If you want to draw. DRAW! If you want to go back to school. REGISTER! Reach for the stars.

As many of you know, I detest making resolutions. I always feel as if I’m setting myself up for failure. And ain’t nobody got time for that. So instead of listing things I want to accomplish. I choose a word to inspire me throughout the entire year. Once chosen, I print it out where I can see it every day. Or re-look at when I get discourage. This year my word is…


No, not potato chips. Or wood chips. Or even poker chips. Although poker chips would fit perfectly in my field. As every thing seems to be a gamble!   *laughing*   But the chips of every day life, what you are doing, exposing yourself, and getting things done. This is the quote where I found my word:

JFK quote

So, my challenge to you is how will you stretch yourself this year? Do you like to make a New Year’s Resolution?   *it’s okay if you do*   Do you like to find an inspirational word? Or do you do something different? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I think CHIPS is a great word. I like the quote, and I am totally on board with ALL kinds of chips. My resolution is to read 200 picture books this year. I pretty much do that resolution every year. I will also drink wine. I am a non-drinker, but have decided to become a person who has an occasional glass of wine. We’ll see how that resolution plays out…. Happy New Year!
