I loved when Zachary said this original quote on Project Runway Jrs. He was the young designer on that show who is well known for being wise beyond his years....both in the things he says and with the clothing he designs. So this month the chalkboard is asking us to invest in our hours as wisely as Beyonce does. And Zachary. Thank you, Zachary, for your wisdom.

This seems to be the business philosophy of the era. Many a successful entrepreneur creates their own business service or product based on the fact that they just couldn't find what they were looking for out there, so they had to invent it. Frustration as inspiration. This is what my chalk wanted us all to think about this month.

So it's a new year. A clean slate. Literally. Starting over again. I'm exchanging the blog haiku posts for chalkboard quote posts instead. I took a course in chalk boarding last year. Each month I'll post a quote a la chalk board. I'm new to it...plus I'm a human...so these won't be perfect...but the words still are intended to inspire.
This is my New Years quote for 2016. I know the layout is not perfect, but the words are what I need to get into my psyche right now. It's so easy in this era to get pulled away from focus with the endless tasks and expectations. One can end up neglecting all kinds of things like healthy diet, exercise, creative project time, tax work, friendships/relationships/family, cleaning and clearing clutter/environment, blogs, sites, etc. (My economics instructor used to often say, "When you do any one thing you are neglecting many other things in life, so choose carefully.")
So, in 2016, I intend to replace the word neglect with the word respect. That means giving attention to our body, how we fuel our bodies and minds, our important people and animals in our lives, our environment, etc. Respect over neglect. Just a simple phrase may even change my refrigerator from becoming a George Carlin comedy routine. Happy 2016!
