It’s time for another Wednesday Word linkup with Debbie! Today’s word is deprivation.
Merriam-Webster has the following to say about deprivation:
- the state of being deprived
- an act or instance of depriving
And since that’s not very helpful, here’s what they say about deprive:
- obsolete: remove
- to take something away from
- to remove from office
With those definitions in mind, I thought of a quote that was adapted from a Dean Karnazes quote. I liked it so much that I made it into one of those motivational posters.
When you surround yourself with people who encourage you and push you, the line between the possible and the impossible gets blurred. If you want to achieve something, don’t deprive yourself. Chase your dreams, no matter how crazy they are, and you can accomplish some remarkable things.
What do you do to make sure you’re not depriving yourself?
