Reek of compassion.

Yes, final answer.

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.

Tried compassion in the work setting and got thrown under the bus. I know Mother Theresa says, Be Compassionate Anyway…

Interesting. Now I’m renegotiating those waters. Testing and retesting with my big toe before jumping back in.

Patty, one of the aha moments in my own journey the past 30 years, was to ask myself if the reason i was being compassionate had any expected return benefit. Sadly, it often did.

These days, the guiding moral compass is the serenity prayer. To do good and decent things without any expectation.

Not implying this applies (or might apply) to you, just offering the turning point in my own challenging journey.
