Happy birthday to me. I love to give gifts as much as I love to receive them. My humble gift for you is a little motivation. Enjoy your day!

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.

This funny photo made me think of the vices of writing dialogue. As writers, we tend to dramatize simple sentences, to show off our skills. However, when it comes to dialogue, it’s better to tone down the parade of skills.
Speak in the language of the character. You can’t expect a college professor to use words like “yo'” and “ain’t”; and you can’t expect a man from the wrong side of the streets to speak in the style used in the picture, either.
Even when the sentence in the photo is extremely sophisticated, it does give a clear example of what might go wrong in a dialogue.
What do you think about this photo? Personally, it made me laugh for quite some time!
