Waking Up Motivated And Catching That Dream

I woke up this morning with a stir of thoughts whirling through my head …
… What do I make for dinner for my babies …
… How many loads of laundry do I have left to do to catch up from the awesome holiday break …
… And then with my last day off before work started up again this week, I knew I needed inspiration. Not just inspiration, but I realized it was high time I gave my dream of publishing my big giant novel another go. My first step? I made an afternoon trip to Barnes and Noble. Below, you’ll find a few pictures of my first attempt to get moving again, to feel motivated, and to get my head in my story where it belongs.

Exibit A. My stack.






Exibit B. My kiddos’ stacks. (This photo was the second of two since my funny kitty Maverick photo bombed the first one. LOL)






What can I say, when I buy books for me, I always buy books for my kiddos as well. I’m hoping one day they will love reading as much as I do, and I’m also hoping that by spreading a little creative thinking around, I’ll get my old manuscript dusted off and give it my best shot.

This year my mantra is, “I will do this.” Not dream it. Not wish it. I will.
So with all this being said about my fun filled day and wildly pesky thoughts about igniting the fire in my dreams, what’s your fire? What do you do to get up and make happen the one thing you really want to have happen in your life?
I’m all ears. ☺
