2016 is Just Around the Bend

Wow! I can’t believe tomorrow is 2016.

Usually, I have the year-end blog posts all set up way in advance. This year though I’ve been super busy with family and work. But, it’s all good. I have a few goodies and created a couple of cool images (pun intended).

Funny that working on these posts and gifts, I continually ran into problems. I tried to create a 15-20 minute screen-sharing video on creating CTAs for my subscribers, but I goofed up three times – stupid, rushing mistakes. Hopefully, by the time this is published I’ll have it redone.

Then I created (edited) a PowToon animation for one of the blog posts and that too had problems. They weren’t caused by me though!

But, that’s life. Sometimes it goes smooth and other times, well . . .

Okay, let me get to the reason for this post.

Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve!
And, I like to close the year with some inspiring and motivating quotes. I did look for new ones, but I couldn’t find any that I liked better than last year’s, so here they are again. I hope they still inspire you as they do me.

Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.”

“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”
~ Lyndon B. Johnson

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” ~ Wayne Gretzky

"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday."  ~ Dale Carnegie

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” ~ Will Rogers

“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
~ Christopher Columbus

“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” ~ Stephen Covey

“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” ~ Warren Buffet

“If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” ~ John C. Maxwell

Encouragement for Writers

We are mothers, sisters, and daughters.

We are wives, friends, and co-workers.

And we are writers. Writers with personal lives. All the roles we have in life can keep us busy, distracted, disappointed, or discouraged. It can even pull us away from writing if we are overwhelmed.

Here are some inspirational quotes I hope will encourage you!

Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. - Theodore Roosevelt

Problems are not stop signs. They are guidelines. - Robert Schuller

If you have other things in your life-family, friends, good productive day work-these can interact with your writing and the sum will be all the richer. - David Brin

A wounded deer leaps the highest. - Emily Dickinson

One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time. - John Wanamaker
