Sometimes we are quick to judge with or without due cause. Even if we believe our views to be right, many times our perception is merely right within our world and not necessarily the worlds of others. Perhaps we’re caught up in the real-time aspects of having access to information and the power to publish on-demand. Maybe we need to seek justification for our unwillingness to step outside of our comfort zones. Or perchance, we’re simply repressing animosity towards those who seem to envision and/or accomplish things we haven’t yet found the energy, passion or cause to pursue ourselves.

Without our ability to learn from each experience, we are doomed to operate and develop within theconfines we establish around ourselves.If we’re not contributing to the solution, they we are contributing to the hindrance of evolution or revolution. And yes, there are times when the wheel does need to be reinvented.Our future is defined by innovation and adaptation, rooted in our understanding of history so that insome cases we can relive it and in others we can write it.We either operate alone or collectively as one.One of many such experiences and stories captured my attention this week. Initially, I shared thepopular view circulating the blogosphere. Due to the lack of free time, I was prevented fromresponding earlier. But because I was without access to publish my thoughts, I benefited,unintentionally, from this span of time to contemplate and also postulate.The story to which I’m referring is theperceived exploitationof Brianna Karp, a homeless blogger who was recruited to blog for Elle magazine. Her blog,The Girl’s Guide to Homelessness and her  story was called a21st century fairytale by The Associated Press After receiving a touching letter from Karp signed, Homeless, But Not Hopeless, E. Jean Carroll, apopular advice columnist for Elle, reached out with a $150-a-month offer that will no doubt prove far more lucrative in the long-term.This Cinderella story was dissected and analyzed by experts and pundits across the blogosphereand the Twitterverse. Many balked at the audacity of a publishing powerhouse to exploit a helpless young woman for a meager, below minimum wage rate of $150 per month, all in the name of publicity and business.After further research, this endeavor actually appears to be an internship, one that I am sure will lead to many incredible new opportunities – for her, others with dreams and aspirations, as well as Ellethe brand and the business.I do not have all of the facts. Nor do I portend to. However, I believe that the gift of compassion andinspiration can lead to wonderful stories and I believe this is one of them. The power of intent andsecond chances are far too uncommon these days, in my opinion.
