Get Up to Get Up and Help Others Get Up

Get up! You may think I’m asking you to stand up or arise from where you are now. But if we’re on the 80s, you’ll probably assume I’m referring to one’s attire, especially when asked “What’s your get up?”. This phrase takes on another meaning at the GET UP Blogger Launch by Golden ABC, held at the Museum Cafe in Greenbelt 4, Makati last August 25th. In summary, the event encourages us to get up to get up to help others get up. That’s a mouthful. Let me explain. Golden ABC, the Philippine fashion pioneer behind the brands Penshoppe, Oxygen, ForMe, Memo and Regatta, launched a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative dubbed “GET UP.” Corporate social responsibility is one of the company’s values and they have been involved in supporting education, community building, environment and arts & culture through various organizations.

Be Visible with Clarity

We live in a competitive world. We all know that to achieve our goals, we have to make it happen. In our career, we don’t just work hard but we make it a point that we get noticed. We show that we are competent in what we do and are capable of doing more. This way, our level of influence increases and we become more visible. But sometimes, we get in the way of our own progress. Despite all efforts, our attitudes, personality or even confidence inhibits us to really stand out above the rest. To succeed, we need to be clearly visible. We need to show the world we live in that we have what it takes and that message must be conveyed with clarity. Clarity Aesthetic Medical and Dental Clinic, a house of professional beauty and dental transformations, acknowledges this fact. This has prompted the company to launch ...

I was saddened by the news. These kind of information affects me greatly because my mother also went through a similar ordeal. Mom at work In the late 90s, my mom felt a lump in her right breast. As the breadwinner in our family, she ignored it for sometime then decided to have a check up at the East Avenue Medical Center. But the first time was not such a pleasant experience. She was told that she has to be re-examined. Just like everybody else, she was worried. Worried about the results, but I think even more worried that she had to skip work. The doctor’s reply scared her away and the test ...
