Wonderful Wednesday. It’s the middle of the week and we still have endless possibilities in front of us. Possibilities mean there is something wonderful ahead, new adventures, new opportunities to be kind to someone. Jesus took kindness to a new level. He didn’t expect anything in return, he just gave. Give some kindness to someone today. #kindnessmatters#yourvoicematters#belovingandkind
Nice people rule!!!
I lost my paisley jacket on the way home yesterday and I was bummed. I hoped that someone who would appreciate would find it. Looks like that someone is me! Reunited and it feels so good...
A number of years ago, my father sadly passed and one of the things that helped me through the grieving process was the book "Change your thoughts change your life." Living the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching by my good friend and mentor @drwaynedyer RIP.
Lao Tzu knowledge and understanding on kindness along with Wayne's viewpoint and experience was profound to me and resonated with my whole being.
I would like to share with you one of Lao Tzu quotes on Kindness. "Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love." ~Lao Tzu
What kindness will you give today?
Beautiful story by @farmsanctuary
Nineteen years ago, on a hot autumn day, D.C. police received a fateful call about an abandoned transport truck. Nearly 200 pigs were trapped inside an intensely crowded three-tiered, 18-wheeled trailer with no water after a long ride from the Hanor Company Of Wisconsin LLC. in Rocky Mount, NC. They’d already been through so much – but fortunately, this time, luck was on their side. In a group effort, they were rescued, and 40 of them came to Farm Sanctuary to start their happy new lives. ❤️🐷 Every one of them was unique and special in his or her own way – each #SomeoneNotSomething . For example, Maggie was a ray of sunshine who loved water and was always excited to play in the rain. Finn was a gentle giant who took it upon himself to help raise and guide some of the younger pigs who came to the sanctuary. Polka Dot loved to play. Angie became terribly depressed after her two best friends passed away – but found new happiness in the form of a once-lonely piglet named Fiona. Angie gave Fiona love and stability, and Fiona gave Angie the push she needed to venture outside again and enjoy favorite activities like basking in the sun and rolling in the mud. Kari was the most talkative of the group; she’d happily grunt a “huh huh huh” greeting (a happy sound pigs make to their friends) when we came into her barn. Aurora was shy until she got to know you, and very sweet once she did. Dale was feisty, and could be a little bit of a grump – but he was loveable all the same. Cookie was a leader of the herd and had the most beautiful eyes. Howard and Teresa were best friends; they would sleep face to face, and we’d often find them chatting to each other when we came into the barn in the morning. Teresa made it to the ripe old age of 14, the longest-lived of the group; in the meat industry, pigs like her are typically killed when they’re still babies, at about 6 months of age. 🐖🐖🐖 All of these pigs were loved, appreciated, and treated with kindness and care from the moment of their rescue until the end of their lives. Today, on the anniversary of their rescue, we honor them, as well as the many others like them who are still suffering
*KIDHERO CHALLENGE* How far would you or your kids get without your devices? The unaccompanied minors who attend lessons at the Refugee Council don't have laptops or computers. Their teacher, Sarah Dexter wants to teach them coding so that they can find jobs when they finish school. Could you or your kids/teens help them raise money for much needed computers by donating to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sarah-dexter1 Perhaps your kids could do a sponsored weekend without devices to raise money? Will you join the KidHero challenge for the Refugee Council this week?
I attended Sarah's class today. Her students were made up of, on average 16 year olds, from Afghanistan, Sudan and Eritrea. I was amazed by how hard they work in class. One boy said the reason he likes the class is he wants to learn so he can help others. ❤️❤️❤️❤️The kids aren't forced to attend the classes, they choose to. They want to learn and help others to do the same.
I don’t know what each of their stories are or what they have run away from. What I did see was a bunch of kids who could be my own sons in a few years, except my sons won’t have travelled thousands of miles, through countless perils on their own to an unknown country.
They were listening, enjoying and actively participating in their class 😊😊😊😊and you could see they had a great deal of respect for their teacher, Sarah. 👩🏻🏫👩🏻🏫When she asked what they did on the weekend. One teen said he helped his (foster) mum clean, tidied his room and did his washing! I nearly fell off my chair! I haven’t heard many teens say that before! Nobody knows what the future holds for these kids or whether they will be allowed to stay in the UK when they turn 18, but for now they have a chance to learn. Will you help them get the computers they need to do this? 💻💻💻

Today when i workout at the gym there where to younger guys who was abusing a woman they had no respect at all. A man are supposed to behave like a man. The two younger guys talked and looked at the woman like she was a toy i am so tired of people who abuse no matter who it is. I only had to look at them then they went quiet . There are to much of this about woman it's to much about sex and no respect. We need to stop that so thumbs up and stand up for the woman.
✨Afternoon yogi tea with quotes from no one other but Yogi Bhajan. This one really hit home for me. Many people tell me I’m “too nice for my own good” and while I understand that boundaries are essential, I believe that kindness is so very essential; and the words “too much” just mesh with “kindness” or “love” or”compassion”. Bottom line: I refuse to change. There is so much tragedy happening in the world we need people with a lot of love in their heart 🙋🏼💜. Earlier I was grocery shopping and had a bunch of healthy and less healthy stuff in my cart; I was kind of in a hurry as it was my lunch break and the lady in front of me made me practice a lot of present moment awareness 😆 - or in other words was taking a reaaally reaaally long time to self check-out. 😆😄When it was finally my turn to pay - a man with a small boy on his arm and one bag of lettuce was standing behind me. I was about to start scanning my stuff when I saw him and decided to ask him if he‘d like to go first. I‘m sure his arm was heavy from holding his son and waiting just a tad longer - so what ?! He kinda looked at me in disbelief and then went ahead, scanned and paid his stuff first. When he finished he smiled at me, thanked me and we had a moment of really nice, human-to-human type of connection. I‘m not telling you this to toot my own horn and brag about how freaking, awesome and kind I am 🙃😄🦄😆😝...I‘m reflecting on this as I‘m thinking about how we can ALL make a difference in each other‘s lives with small acts of kindness instead of staying separated in our own drama and Ego stories. We always talk about changing the world - well, that‘s how it’s done. Every day, with small acts. And you certainly don‘t have to Ghandi- you can be a regular 9-5er dudette 💁🏼💅🏻 like me who just went to the grocery store in her lunch break to buy yogi tea and other yummy things. 🙂Be kinder than necessary, because we all fight some kind of battle. 💜💜💜💜 #anusoul#bekinderthannecessary#kindnessmatters#kindness#instagram#instafamous#unicorn#spiritualjourney#yogitea#yogibhajan#yoga#yoganandalove#love#change#changetheworld#spirituallyawaken#awakening#thirdmillenium
the best thing about kindness is that it truly is contagious!! infuse a little kindness in your classroom and watch how it begins to positively impact how students learn, care for others, and treat themselves!! we’re educating not just kids of our classroom, but the future citizens of the world🌎✨ Today, I brought a book about cats and I said “the other day I remembered C*** telling us she loves cats! So I decided to teach my lesson using this cat book!” C***: “miss. z thank you for thinking about me!” You should have seen how happy she was!!! if only my students knew that I am thinking and praying for them all the time!!!❤️❤️
Today's challenge #6 is a fun one! How do you know when long is long enough? You don't, that's the fun part.😂 Now go find someone to hug (that wants to be hugged). #happyhugging#spreadkindnesschallenge
Though She has plenty of reasons to hold on to hate, anger, fear, self pity, non trust, for she has walked though the fires of her trials all alone, with nothing but the shadows of her past to show her the difference between darkness and the light within her own true self. And in this light, she was given a crown to wear afterwards, made out of the tears of freedom and the joy of Grace through the freedom of forgiveness in compassion does she taste upon her tongue the sweetness life has to savor in the latter of her days. Count them out for me, dear sweet angels of mine, hold onto the rain some, send the sun to dance high overhead too warm my soul and brighten my winters in the long slow of my life. Send to me the lite winds that dance and sing within the old willow trees in the weed grasses on the riverbanks of life. Let not the thundering clouds form a crown of their own over my head too bring on the eye of the storm where all is calm among the chaos of life. No no no, sweet giver of souls light, let me not ride the lightning right back to the soul of my home among the stars, for I have grown to love life and wish to love still evermore while I am home within these flesh and bones. I will stand my ground and live.💕🖤💕🖤💕🖤💕🖤Christine St.Croix 10/18/2017 photo and poem within photos borrowed by Michelle @michellesoulkissing a beautiful writer and poet. #wordporn#words#writers#writersofinstagram#instaphotos#love#you#always#my#Heart#Soul#light#darkness#forgive#forgotten#peace#we#us#compassion#shadow#kindnessmatters#love#death#freedom#letters
