M is for Motivation

In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.  This was a double spread of starred paper with some gesso wiped over it.  There's also some smaller pages sewn in between.

Ironically, this page has been really difficult.  I couldn't find any motivation for starting it.  In the end I put pieces of some new washi tape on the left hand side.  I know!  I'm supposed to be using up what I have already, but I could resist these new ones from London Gifties.  The small rectangular card came as part of the parcel.

I stuck down the letter stickers to make the word MOVE because that's what I was going to do the page about - the motivation to move.

However, when I searched on Bible Gateway, I found these two verses and decided I would use these instead.

I moved MOVE to the other side of the page and asked myself: What can I do to motivate myself to move?

I don't have an answer for that.  At the beginning of the year I said that I was committed to losing weight and to getting fit but I have done nothing towards it.  I set myself two goals of walking or exercising 4 times per week and to lose 3" off my waist by December 31st.  Unless something changes - it's not happening!

Thanks for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
