Lurking in the Alley

Hello everyone!

I love finding quotes each Wednesday that sum up how I’m feeling. This one, by Earl Nightingale, is perfect for my thoughts this week. Perhaps this is why I continue to add more freelancing projects to my already overloaded schedule. Read on for today’s haiku.

“The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!”
~Earl Nightingale

Inky Solemn Sky

Today’s Haiku:

inky, solemn sky
lightning carves a daring path—
the next adventure

Today, an acquaintance of mine wrote a Facebook post stating, “Stop venerating Dr. Wayne Dyer, please.” He apparently gave bad advice in one of his books. Just wondering how many of you were led astray by the self-help guru?

Or did you take from him what you needed and let the rest go?

Have a peaceful day!

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.”
