I just found out that Wayne Dyer passed away. In case you aren’t aware of his work, he was a best-selling author and motivational speaker, and Wayne Dyer is the reason that COMPASSION IT exists.
That is not an exaggeration.
In May of 2014, I met a fellow San Diegan who knew Wayne Dyer, and he offered to send him a letter on my behalf. I was thrilled that I would have the opportunity to share with Mr. Dyer how his life’s work inspired me to discover my life’s work. I’m not sure if he ever received the letter, but I sure hope so.
This is what I wrote:
Dear Mr. Dyer,
Words cannot express how grateful I am. You shared words of wisdom years ago that changed the course of my life.
In 2008, I experienced tremendous suffering. As stay-at-home mom of my 18-month-old daughter, I faced an unwanted divorce that turned my picture-perfect life upside down. I was lost, and I was a mess. Luckily, I caught an ‘Ellen’ episode featuring you. (Please visit my blog to read more.)
