Empathy is like a garden. It has to be nurtured to grow. For good health it needs to be watered.  I walk past this parking spot almost everyday and this morning I wondered, “Why do we need to keep being reminded?” To constantly cultivate empathy we also need reminders. I’m not saying we shouldn’t have […] The post Cultivate Empathy; It’s Like A Garden appeared first on Blessing Mpofu.

Influence(r) is one of the most used words today. It is how some people make their money. The label, whether applied on by self or culture, can be misleading. On the one hand I get it; it’s the means we describe something. But there are some things about the influence(r) language that bug me.

Whether I publish or not I can never imagine not writing. I write as a way of thinking. I also do it to start conversations and, in some small way make a difference. I hope my words inspire someone to action. Maybe even make their and our world even greater.

I’ve never written anything like this. I can’t believe I’ve thought about it long enough to follow through with a post. So here goes… I’ll be nice and say, I don’t like cats.

One Big Thing To Remember About Blogging

I’ve been blogging for a long time here and a few other places. While I continue to write and publish elsewhere, I find it helpful to still do this ‘personal’ blogging. I need the space to write uninhibited. Top process and share my thoughts unfettered. Where I don’t worry about a brand or tone, or persona.

How do we keep our hearts from being seared & becoming so callous we cry for and celebrate bloodshed? How can […] The post Wondering How I Can Be A Peacemaker appeared first on Blessing Mpofu.

Often, sharing different perspectives or veiwpoints is to get to a resolution. But resolution shouldn't be the point.

When Resolution Shouldn’t Be The Point

I’ve said this before: there is and will never be shortage of opinions. While online publishing continues to evolve, some fundamentals don’t. The greatest of these is our humanness. I’m yet to be convinced that social media fundamentally changes us. It only impacts how we express ourselves. This includes opinions and worldviews. Various publishing tools […] The post When Resolution Shouldn’t Be The Point appeared first on Blessing Mpofu.
