Just Jot January – 2020 – Drive

Thank you, Linda, for using my word DRIVE for today’s jot.  Now if I can only think of something to write about – LOL.  As you may know if you are a regular reader, each year I pick a word of the year to help guide me.  This year I picked Drive so throughout the year I’ll be gathering bits and pieces of things to remind me that I need to be more driven in my actions. 

Image may contain: possible text that says 'You're re the driver of your own life. Don't let anyone take your seat.'

Last year my word was dance and I am not sure that it served me well.  I think it was too loose and frivolous.  I mean, I had it in mind to dance my way through the year, making everything easy and relaxed but my life turned anything but easy and relaxing.  I realized I needed a more action driven word for this year if I want to get things in my life back on track.

One of the ways I use to keep the word in my mind is by putting a quote in this locket that I wear.  I am still searching for the perfect one, although “No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys” is a possibility. 

Another way is to post pictures of things that will remind me of the word around my house and the studio. 

It helps to know that I have been in control in the past so there’s no reason why I can’t do it again. 

One more way is with my daily planner.  I ordered one this year from Plum Paper and I customized the sections to include things I wanted.

So far I’ve been pretty good about filling out each section, but it is only January so we’ll see.
Thanks again, Linda, for hosting such a fun challenge every January.  If you have any great quotes about drive, let me hear them.

    Thanks for the prompt. I love what you wrote here. I think dance means movement for fun. Can that not continue to be an instigator for what will drive you? You have certainly given me a different take on both. Now I need to rethink what I planned to write today. I hope to sit in the sidecar as you drive to your own music. šŸ˜‰
