Creative Mondays: Compasssion



Compassion is such an underestimated word. We fail to come to grasps with the gravitational effects a simple word we say, or emotion we emit, can have on someone. We have no shame in calling someone fat, stupid, ugly, or a loser, while we think twice – at least – before we utter a complement.

We are so haste to give our “honest opinion” about a person, that we forget that everyone around us is fighting a tough battle of their own. It’s not until we face the same predicament that we realize how wrong our actions were.

We make and break promises to ourselves not to be rude to people around us anymore. A good way to commit to these promises is by urging ourselves to be nice to balance things out: for every time you hurt someone’s feelings, apologize, and, then, do something nice to someone else.

Falling is Just Another Way to Fly

Empower Yourself


One of the humors of life is when life drops you after you have learned to fly. As humorous as how I can describe it, the experience is definitely not amusing because you will only get to laugh about its hilarity right when you see the blinding light at the end of that dark tunnel of adversity.

I learned of this when I first got into what I thought to be the peak of my career. I was then celebrating a successful telemarketing business surrounded by a gregarious environment, enjoying a flourishing real estate career meeting new people everyday thereby widening my network, and inspiring young minds of 9th graders in the academe. It was stressful but utterly fulfilling.
