Crossroads

One of my best friends is discovering how agonizingly wonderful life
is when you find the sweet spots where your passions and skills meet
the world’s needs. He said:

Working in GMA has gotten me back in touch with the side of me that has and will always be immersed in Communications. In combination with WAVE, I have to say that despite the stress, dammit, I love my work. Both of them.

Add to this his love for teaching…

I’ve been drawn into Philosophy from day one with it, and there’s just an amazing feeling you get when you have a student walk in and think how irrelevant Philosophy is to life only to walk out and think otherwise.

… and you have a very talented person wondering which way he should
go, what he should do.

Mr. Bulaong told me to look at myself carefully, because
the universe is molding me into something with an amazing potential.
The question is for what that potential is meant to be, because it
seems like this time, I can’t expect to have my cake and eat it, too.

In the book “Built to Last”, James Collins and Jerry Porras show how
successful companies find ways to combine their strengths and explore
their full potential. Success is not about the tyranny of the OR, but
rather about the genius of the AND.

Why shouldn’t people be able to do that too? It’s not about OR:
communications OR philosophy, radio OR teaching. Marcelle, keep
thinking, keep wondering—you’ll find a way to have your cake AND eat
it too!

Not all teaching is done within a classroom, and not all communication
is done from the DJ’s booth. I know Marcelle will find a way to live
as all of himself instead of just one part, as I trust I will find a
way to fully, truly live.
