You Get What You Pay For

Daily Prompt Powerful Suggestion What’s the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year (or five, or ten…) ago?

One very interesting aspect to these repeated prompts (let’s not call them “Daily Prompts;” lets call them perennial prompts) is that we can look back and see what concerned us before and what we wrote about it. This morning that turned out to be an interesting and positive experience. I last wrote this prompt on May 13, 2014.

May 13, 2014, I was in Descanso CA still tangled up in that mess from which I extricated myself only four months later. FOUR MONTHS LATER? Yep, folks. Four months. That’s amazing when you realize that in May 2014 I was HOPING to keep my job (and knowing I wouldn’t) and I was HOPING that what I was working toward (remodeling my house for the purpose of selling it) wasn’t really what I was working toward. Still, I packed and hauled stuff to Goodwill and threw stuff out and a guy was doing repairs. I hadn’t even seen Monte Vista, CO. That wouldn’t happen until August.

Now I wonder why I wanted to stay there at all.

As for advice? Some is good; some is bad. The worst advice I ever got (but listened to) came from a woman who purported to be my friend, but who wasn’t, really. Some of the best advice I ever got, I ignored. If you’re interested, you can read last year’s response… The two pieces of advice are connected.

  1. I remember you big move. I too had memories of the last prompt, too many memories of too many prompts. today is my last rehashed prompt. I will continue but ignore the theme. I have done them too often.
