Writers Quote Challenge Prompt

Quote, Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha, Doing My Own Thing, Life, Poetry

I stopped waiting for you to bring me sweet words. I wrote my own! Jacqueline

I sat in silence
waited in futility
hoped hopelessly
that you would bring me words
that would make a difference.

I held my breath
expectantly, I perspired
hanging on
to the few words you had to offer
you starved me. You kept me hungry.

I got tired
of the hunger
I wanted more words
I stopped waiting in vain
I gathered my own words and moved on.

We are continuing the same format here and that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!

On your own blog post do a pingback to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A pingback is when you embed (or copy) the URL of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.

Make sure to check our weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy URL of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.

Copy the badge above and include it in your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “The Writer’s Quote Challenge,” so we can find the posts in the reader.

Unfortunately, due to the exigencies of time, Bernadette has taken a break from Writer’s quote so, we are still welcoming co-hosts.  Come and join in the fun.

Greatness is a choice – My Thinking Corner

Your Greatness, Your Dreams, Your Life, Quotes, Life Lessons, Wisdom, Motivation and Inspiration

The unblemished truth about our lives is that we are who we think we are, therefore, if we are dissatisfied with who we are in our present time, then we must change our thinking.

Reaching for the greatness in you is a choice. The greatness is a given, but it takes your service to bring it out. You’ve got to run after it.

It’s easy to sit down and make wishes, but success is achieved by ordinary people who make fewer excuses, who procrastinate less. The small things in life add up to the bigger picture, each day counts. Everything you do must be done to the best of your ability, even in the smallest things like picking up your own trash.

Show up every day for life with your best attitude and leave the rest for the power higher than you. Life takes notice and the Universe rewards.

My Thinking Corner – Don’t Settle!

Life, Mind, Quotes, Dream, Vision

  • Keep seeking for higher ground and don’t settle for less. You can do more than you can ever begin to imagine if you really want.

    Don’t park your dream on the side and settle for less than you know life can give you. Keep reaching higher.

  • You’ve got to reprogram that mind to accommodate the big dreams that you’ve got.

    When a mind is set in its pattern of thinking it becomes myopic and doesn’t allow room for expansion. When people say this is the way I am, in essence, they admit that they are not willing to change or grow if need be, especially when it comes to negative habits and thought patterns that need to be changed.

  • You are never too old to learn. You continue self-mastery as long as the clock of your heart is ticking.

Setbacks will surely come as we journey along the path of life, are you prepared?

 You can have all the material wealth but poor and insecure in your heart. A heart that’s rich in love is the most secure and wealthiest of all – Jacqueline

Purposeful – My Thinking Corner

Each day out of 365 days you are given an opportunity of a lifetime to live purposefully – Jacqueline

Inspiration, Purposeful, Life, quotes, Motivation, Lifestyle

  • We all are called for a purpose, we all are chosen, the important thing is; did you listen to hear your call; have you chosen to answer?
  • Make no mistake, your life is absolutely not a mistake. Your life has a Purpose.

Sometimes we flounder because we don’t know which path to follow in our lives or because the path we’ve chosen seems to be going nowhere, but the pure truth is that the answers to the path we seek are there inside us.

All we need to do, is to scratch beneath the surface, to listen to our heart with keen ears in order to hear with clarity. Sometimes, we have to cover our eye’s to see through the window of our soul.

Lady Cee shares a nugget that tugs on my mind ‘from slavery to celebrity.’ The message I received from this post is that God is not interested in your background, gender, wealth or whatever before he can use you as a vessel.
