perseverance-2

Other friends and readers shared their words: Confidence, Faith, Kindness, and Balance. These are very powerful for me–particularly Perseverance. (Thank you Clare Marie, MaryJo, Anne, and Jodi!)

My dear friend Lauren happens to be a very talented graphic designer, and turned our 2014 words into gorgeous stamps. If you are moved like I was, cut these words out as a bookmark, or pin them to your cubicle, or tape them to your mirror.

Or if you want to stamp something powerful on your own blog or webpage, copy an image and install it as a widget [directions at end]. Just credit laurenvasil.com. Let’s live boldly together in 2014!

How to install an image on your WordPress blog or website.

  1. Click on an image.
  2. Copy the URL of the webpage the image is displaying in.
  3. Go to your “Dashboard” and click “Appearance” on the left-side menu.
  4. Under the Appearance choices, click “Widgets.”
  5. Under “Available Widgets,” find “Image,” and drag it over the right into one of your widget areas. Perhaps, “Primary Widget Area.”
  6. Copy the URL from step 2 into the “Image URL” blank.
  7. Under caption, or in one of the other text spaces, credit laurenvasil.com. (I just made the images link to her site, but we’re friends, so I’m totally comfortable with this :)).
  8. Click “save” in the Image widget.

Hopefully that will take care of you! Here’s to 2014! Muah!
