You've all heard it at one time or another--that little voice in your head that says, "It's too hard," "I can't do it," "I'll never be good enough."
It's when you feel challenged by something new or difficult that you're most apt to experience a tinge of self-doubt. It slithers into your subconscious unnoticed and nibbles away at your confidence, making you feel insecure, even powerless. Just remember. . .
“When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.” ~Honore de Balza
Never fear: motivation is here!
Motivation, simply put, is the desire to do things. It's the difference between approaching a task with enthusiasm and a willingness to persevere -- and simply blowing it off. Without motivation, goal-setting is impossible. Once you figure out what it is you want out of life, motivation and self-control will give you enough power to pound through the hard stuff and achieve more than you ever dreamed possible!

Your Greek Ampnorae came out beautifully, and now it's time to look at an artform for which ancient Rome is well-known. Mosaics. I have a handout for you with all the directions you'll need. Look at the interactive sites below. Play around with ideas using our smallest grid graph paper. For the activity, you'll need to cut colored construction paper into small squares (I will give you 1/2" strips and a paper cup for each color.)
