Lessons from the Past

Good day to you.

I am saddened by the death of Dr. Wayne Dyer, a self-help guru my grandfather introduced me to when I was in high school. This week, I am posting some of my favorite quotes by Dr. Wayne Dyer in honor of his brilliant life lessons.

“Each experience in your life was absolutely necessary in order to have gotten you to the next place, and the next place, up to this very moment.”

~Dr. Wayne Dyer


As I near my 300th post, I am thankful I still have something to say and people who want to read my musings. However, my schedule is relentless and I have decided to cut back on the number of posts each week.

Five posts a week is simply more than I can handle, and some days I feel like I am posting just to be posting. I want my haiku to be thoughtful and evocative, not pressured and contrived.

I will continue to post on Monday using the Haiku Horizon prompt, Wednesday will be inspiring quotes along with a haiku, and Friday, of course, will be saved for Girl on the Go. Tuesday’s Tips is on hold until further notice.


Thanks Haiku Horizons for the haiku prompt, “past.”

  1. Dr Wayne Dyer’s passing away is a great loss, Nicole, as his writings are truly edifying, in the league of inspirational writers such as Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, and Zig Ziegler. Experiences of life are built on failures, by trying and failing, and finally succeeding by learning from failed attempts, but not by failing to try. Your haiku captures it well…best wishes.. Raj.

  2. I share your sadness at the passing of Dr. Dyer, Nicole. I look forward to the quotes you will share. The one you chose for today–along with fitting Haiku–are timely indeed.
