What is Your Motive?

I blinked and found myself in 2018. Goodness, 2017 flew past me. And yet I remember the challenges and joys it presented. Both of which motivated me to take action. Action to pray. Action to work hard. Action to dig deeper. Action to get creative.

Action is always inspired by motivation. Without a motive, we won’t move. 

The word motivate actually means providing someone with a motive for doing something. Whenever I write a new book, I start with my main character. Who are they? What do they want in life? WHY do they want it? Their WHY is their motive. Their WHY will drive the entire story.

Likewise, you are the main character of your story. Your WHY is your motive. Your WHY will drive your life. 

My name is Catie Lynn Cordero. I want to Know Jesus Christ more deeply. I want to be a more patient person. I want to be more selfless. I want to inspire with my books and writing. I want to be debt-free. WHY? Because the person I am in this life is the legacy I leave behind me. And the person I am affects the people around me. Christ made a difference both when he lived on earth and after he rose again. Oh, that I could follow in his footsteps.

Find your WHY. Make it count. 

 

If Only I Could Step Through Time For Just a Day, Maybe Two

When I look at vintage photos in the 1920’s, I’m mesmerized. I wish I could enter a portal that would transport me into the picture so I could experience the day with the people in it. Oh the fun we’d have! Just imagine if you could step back in time to a picture you hold in your hand and spend one whole day, maybe two. What picture would you choose? Where would you go?

Music and dancing, a roaring good time.

 

 

A portrait of gals enjoying a day at the beach along the Potomac River. Washington, D.C. 1923. Looks like fun.
