One Little Word - Aspire...

It's the 15th, and that means it's time for the One Little Word Challenge for January!  This month's word is "Aspire!"

I took a bit of a reverse approach on this one, with a quote by Jodie Foster...


"Normal is not something to aspire to - It's something to get away from."  ~Jodie Foster

I've always felt like I am a bit different, so this quote spoke to me.  Back in junior and senior high, when the main goal was to fit in, being different was not a plus - ha.  But now, I love being exactly who I am, and wouldn't want it any other way!  The quote also reminds me of the bumper stickers I used to see on the cars of fellow deadheads back in my traveling days, that said "Why Be Normal?"  We were all a little different, and in that way, we DID fit in - with each other.

So, anyhoo, what does the word "aspire" make you think of?  Come on over to the One Little Word Challenge blog and see what the other design team members did - we hope you will want to play along!  This week our host - Jessica Sporn, is giving away one of her fab stencils to one lucky participant!  Click here to go to the challenge and check it out!
