My dear friend Mel from Graphics from the Pond created this awesome new "Motivate Me Monday" link up. What I liked about it was it gave me time to pause and reflect about what my answers were. Many of the things that I wrote down are things I'd been pondering, but hadn't really figured out how to make it into a post. :) Until now....
The link up includes a blank Motivate Me work sheet that you can find on Mel's page, and this week has 6 prompts as seen in the sample below. You can learn more about the link up HERE:
And then what you do is write on post-it-notes or other scraps of paper and attach it to your board. Then you take a picture of it. :)
Inspirational Quote: (Upper left) My quote from Pele' was taken from the Internet. I liked the theme. I think the combination of hard work, and loving what you do is important for success.
Inspirational Friend: (Upper right) My friend Danielle Knight (@studyallknight) inspires me, and she probably doesn't even know it. She has a creative talent that is unique, she is a go-getter. Rarely do I ever see her down about anything. Even if something may be not be quite right, She figures out a cool way to deal with it. She is a true blue friend...Friends like that are definitely rare! :)
Something an Inspirational Teacher or Colleague might say: #fercryinoutloud was chosen in honor of my teacher Mr. Gionet that passed away last Saturday after a long battle with cancer. My blog post tomorrow will explain more in detail why this person is significant and why I chose his hashtag to use. :) For now, just trust me that this person is one of the finest teachers I ever had the privilege of knowing, and will be dearly missed.
Song Lyric: I used a snipped from the Lady Antebellum song Compass. This song was chosen because it reminds me to follow the path that I am meant to be on not the one others expect me to follow. Even when times are darkest, there are friends and family along the way that will be there. And if not, there is always loud music, chocolate, and the occasional mixed cocktail. :))
Makes me Smile: A job well done. Lately, I've been doing a lot of extra work and just having so much accomplished, and the people the work was done for appreciate and love it - it makes it all worthwhile.
Something to look forward to: Launching my new product line. A work in progress for a long, long time... :)
Thank you for reading, if you made it this far. In the coming days, and weeks, you're going to see a huge transformation in my Blog and web presence. :) Woo hoo! Stay tuned. And if you are so inclined, show Mel some <3 at her Blog From the Pond..
