Intentional Kindness

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness – like can’t sleep at all this past week, so I’m up all night thinking about it . Last night,  needing to do something to further my thoughts, I was reading and pinning, and then realized this morning that it’s “Random Act of Kindness Day”. Why wouldn’t it be? đŸ˜‰ More and more, I come to the conclusion … Continue reading Intentional Kindness

the confusion of knowledge

Someone sent me an article about how creative people’s brains work differently. It was saying that the whole left brain, right brain thing is incorrect. Creative’s brains are working making connections and working with both sides. The article pointed out that this is why creative people can understand and exist conflicting terms. Coupled with my INFP-ness, it’s no wonder all the understanding can actually make … Continue reading the confusion of knowledge

for the haters in my circle

There’s this whole thing about how the internet isn’t real. I get it. If you remove the internet from our lives, it doesn’t effectively change who we are. But it is a real extension of ourselves. It’s our knowledge and connection. It’s lots of invisible things that are really important to us in some way, individually, or collectively. So it’s not really separate. We can’t … Continue reading for the haters in my circle

honoring the things that suck

Life can be unbelievably painful and ridiculous. And a lot of times, because people feel bad about what you’re going through, they don’t want to acknowledge it. It makes them uncomfortable to see you suffer. While it’s good that people don’t want you to suffer, it doesn’t mean that you won’t. It doesn’t mean that they can slap a platitude onto it and make it … Continue reading honoring the things that suck

Forgiveness

I had a reading done, and I asked what I needed to do regarding a particular situation. The reader said, “forgiveness” then flipped a card that said exactly that. I thought, but I have forgiven… I know that I am still working through the hurt, but I’m not holding onto it. Emotions come in waves, and I acknowledge them and let them flow. I didn’t … Continue reading Forgiveness

Meaningful things

I had been thinking about stones and wanting to find something meaningful to put at my dad’s grave. There weren’t really physical things between us, it was never about the stuff, but what the stuff represented… The opportunity to go to this fair had arisen, and I wanted to check it out. Before I went, I had a dream about placing stones on my dad’s … Continue reading Meaningful things

visual disparity

It’s complicated to present totally differently than you feel. No one needs to defend their appearance, if they are choosing to present differently than their current bodily status, it’s no one’s place to judge that. Identity is a big thing for me, and I feel like we should all be able to be our authentic selves. For me, if that means that I don’t look … Continue reading visual disparity

food is love, and other acts of kindness

Our tribe lost it’s leader. This is the best way I can describe the collective loss of my father. It feels like I just saw him yesterday, but I miss him so very much. Time is in this weird place of holding on and moving forward. The passing of days does nothing to help, but remembering his kindness, and sharing it gives us something positive … Continue reading food is love, and other acts of kindness
