Motivation and Inspiration

Finding motivation and inspiration in my work is a complete Blessing to me. Around every Chalk Couture Corner I find joy in the huge things and especially in the small things. Sometimes, it is simply our corporate leaders’  attention to the minute details propelling my progressing success. Other times it is in the personal touches that make each one of us feel special. I feel very fortunate and at home with Chalk Couture.

Motivation and Inspiration in Great Abundance

Our Chalk Couture Leadership Conference was last month and it completely touched my soul. Each interaction with the corporate team made me feel as if we had known each other since childhood. Even as a first time attendee,  I was quite surprised at how comfortable it felt to be there with people I had never met in person.

For reasons (at first) unknown, the Chalk Couture Spring Summer 2020 Collection release felt very personal. Each of the designs seemed to hold some kind of meaning for me. Each quote or verse evoked a memory or a chuckle. The profound influence of nature in the designs also brought back many amazing memories. Call me weird, but I was so reminded of why I fell in love with my husband in these new designs.


I suspect a partial reason for why I felt such immense connection with the entire collection is that I had the honor of meeting our Chalk Couture Art Director, Eric Clegg.

Just imagine having the opportunity to peruse the carefully curated collection of complete artistry all in one room.  A stunning symphony of creativeness fills the entire space.  Add to that imagery, the thrill of the orchestrating Maestro being in that same room, taking a few moments to chat with you. This is a special memory that will stay with me. It all felt quite surreal  and was a definite ‘moment’  for this gal.

Wasn’t this supposed to be about Motivation and Inspiration?

This post began as a segway into introducing a Chalk Couture Transfer that spoke to me and encouraged motivation and inspiration. There are absolutely many stunning designs that I am anxious to own and create for my own art. This particular transfer design is very direct and to the point. I usually take the long route to saying what I mean, but this message is  perfect and concise.

Introducing my new motivation and inspiration mantra for 2020.

Motivational Monday

motivational monday with That Chalky Gal

Here it is. As unimaginative (on my part) as it is, in hopes of brightening your day, I am offering up Motivational Monday inspiration to start the week in grand fashion.

I have no earth-shattering, self authored wisdom to depart this Monday, but I DO have quite a collection of favorite sayings and quotes. Today I share them with you.

Please feel absolutely free to ‘borrow’… ‘steal’….or ‘share’ any of these graphics as you please.

Whether it is Motivational Monday or any other simple day of the week, we sometimes need that one quick moment to change the direction the day is headed. We have that control over our own attitudes.

Whether we are the happy-go-lucky type of being or a complete ‘control freak’ there will always be a time in which we should just surrender, have faith, and move on with our lives.  As difficult as it seems, there is a sense of calm that usually follows that release of ‘what was’.

Challenging ourselves is often times all  it takes to break the rut, pushing us to grow beyond imagination.  I personally have a slight fear of doing Facebook Lives. I don’t know why (well, actually I do but that is another post for another time) but I do know no matter what I need to just do it scared. Our Chalkpreneurs TEAM members will tell you that I preach this continually. Growth comes from stepping toward that that makes us feel insecure or afraid.

We all have naysayers amongst us. The solution to overcoming their words is simple. Say thank you and then move on! Having a sense of humor and desire for adventure can be very rewarding.

Luck? What is luck? Success comes from putting forth continual effort until the task is complete.

So, what is YOUR favorite motivational reminder?
