Rude (haha)

I don’t know if I told you all about this, I think that I did. I have an Aunt, who means well, but she does not approve of homosexuality or that I stand with trans people. She’s…Catholic? I can’t remember which one honestly. When she doesn’t approve of something, she sends you a Bible with a little message about how she reads this book when she lost.

Recently, she sent one to me. Because of my trying to help trans people. I laughed at the time, and still do. I just got peeved with one little quote.

It went something along the lines of. It doesn’t matter how much kindness you give, how much you may help others. Without God, it’s all pointless.

Basically, even if you manage to bring world peace. If you don’t believe in God, it’s worthless?

I’m sorry, I don’t have an issue with Religion. But that is totally bullshit.

March the 31st is Tran Days of Visibility!

During this week, on my Twitch Stream Channel. When I’ve been offline I’ve been hosting trans gender/sexual Twitch streamers that I follow.

Just be kind ya know? Like the entire LGBTQIA umbrella have fought their lives and for their rights. It’s tiring, just be kind. It’s really NOT that hard.

World Kindness Day

I don’t know what to write here honestly. I feel like I’m writing to the already kind converted. So what could I write about, that you don’t already know about?

You all know how to be kind, you are all kind people!

Our borders in South Australia, are about to open up to the other states again. It’s really quiet scary. I am choosing to continue to wear a mask in public, good hygiene. We have done really well, but…BUT … All it takes is one person, and all that good work.

Why I bring this up, is because, we’re all going to have to do the best we can do for ourselves and others when the borders are reopened…Are we ready? Physically, maybe…Mentally…Not so much.

Maybe this year, because we are all such kind people, if I do say so myself. We relearn how to be kind to ourselves again. My mum actually reminded herself this week, she needs to go back to having some sort of fun again. There’s literally nothing you can do for people with dementia, you just have to hope that they have as many good days as they can.

Be Kind…

Let’s share how we can be kind to others, and I find a lot of times that when you are kind to others, you feel good within yourself. Especially during these times of such uncertainty, just being kind is so simple. The KPI’s of Kindness.

K – Kindness

P – Proactive

I – Intelligence

When I say ‘Intelligence’, I don’t mean Einstein necessarily, I mean more common sense type of intelligence. I do believe that there are different kinds of intelligence.

I got my flu vaccination today, so I am actually a little bit tired. So hopefully I’ll be able to write something actually useful, haha

Being kind is really very simple.

Apologise when you get something wrong, don’t be ashamed of it. It happens, it really does show was kind of person you are when you can admit you got something wrong…Like I did, last night, haha. I thought a TERF was comparing themselves to Rosa Parks, and they said Rosa Freedman (who is definitely NOT like Rosa Parks). I apologised. It felt right and I didn’t feel any better or worse, cause it was just he RIGHT thing to do. I was wrong and I owned it.

ENJOY the people you care about and their successes! Embrace it. If you don’t care, or your not able to that day…FOR THE LOVE OF GOD…Do not fake it! Wait, until you can be real with them. Trust me, the big thing that pisses me off about one of my now ex-friends. Is realising that the only times she was happy for me, was when I was miserable. I spent over half my life being friends with someone who called me “sister”, only happy when I was sad.

If you can’t think of something kind or nothing, reply to a person with something educational instead and “drop one of these”. You don’t have to say anything some times to be kind.

Then the others, lol:

  • Make some food for your neighbors.
  • If you grow flowers and you feel willing, bunch some flowers together.
  • Send someone random a “Hope you’re well” BEFORE they write that annoying post “I bet you don’t care enough to retweet this”…I seriously hate it, lol
  • Believe in what your saying, before you say it. The amount of people who “blame” others for having to use and hide behind a anon account because of the “threats” Annoys the poop out of me. I believe in what I’m saying and the most extreme I’ve had is another cis women wish rape on myself and the women in my family. I still don’t hide.
  • Get to know yourself, when you TRULY know yourself. Then you find it very hard to ignore things that bother you.
  • Being kind is sometimes telling someone something they don’t want to hear.

The Category is … Kindness

I am currently binge watching season 3 in Pose. 15 minutes in and I am bawling and loving it all over again. For those who don’t know (and I don’t know how you don’t know ~.^)

Pose (stylized as POSE) is an American drama television series about New York City’s African-American and Latino LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming drag ball culture scene in the 1980s, early 1990s in the second season, and the mid-to-late 1990s in the third season. It’s one of the first television series, to be mostly with trans gender actors and staff. It’s amazing!

In 24 hours though, I’ve kept being reminded of the little kindnesses that can make someone’s day.

The first episode of season 3 Pose, is about the family come back together to watch O.J. Simpson on the run. I love the POSE family, haha.

Words

“Sleep with whoever will have you”, “We’re fighting for the rights of children, by not speaking with them and talking for them”, “We walked away because the sign said ‘No terfs’ allowed”. These are not the words of powerful women. These are not the words of Witches of Suffragettes. These are the words of TERFs.

Use your words kindly and wisely. Our Words Matter.

World Kindness Day

What can you do for others and just as importantly, for yourself as well:

Find some way to donate to a charity for the under privileged. For example Kmarts – Wishing Tree

Have a bath, maybe a glass of wine (or not, might make you feel tired).

Compliment a stranger (but don’t make it creepy).

If you’re on Twitter follow the New Zealand #PureKindness hashtag

Look in that mirror and tell yourself … out loud … You ARE beautiful!

Don’t just drive past that cat, make sure it’s not actually lost and miles away from it’s home ❤

Be Kind to your body.

Consider taking up knitting, and knitting for the animals! – WIRES

Write a letter to someone telling them how much they’ve influenced or improved your life. Your choice whether or not you send it.

Defend someone on twitter!

Buy that nice top on sale.

Don’t expect.

Being Kind costs nothing (or very little) and is calming to the mind.

Kindness

Many thanks to Life Lessons from Around the Dinner Table for nominating my blog for this new award which was created by  MSW R. Thank you so much! I honestly got teary, sometimes I forget that my words can make an impact. If I could nominate you, I would!

Here are the rules:

Tell who you nominate and why.

Copy and share the picture that shows the award, posted above.

Share a paragraph of something that impacted your own life in the way of receiving kindness or how you extended kindness to someone else.

Nominate anyone or share to your own page. If you so choose to Participate.

Tag or pingback to the original person who nominated you, or the original post.

Just like with Kristian when I do have something good happen to me or I do something good, I have a hard time talking about it. I don’t like to boast about it either. Even though, usually, when we do something nice for others, most people are genuinely doing it because they want to do something kind for someone else…Usually…

Some of the things I either find bring kindness, or kind things I have done in the past are:

  • My mum doesn’t “love” her job. Every now and then (and when I can afford it) I’ll randomly send her flowers to her desk.
  • It may be irritating and you may think “Why Me” I find though when an “older person” wants to talk with you, it’s usually because they’re lonely and sometimes afraid. One time I was speaking to an elderly gentleman and he was on the way to the Doctors. He asked me to read a letter as he couldn’t read English well. He asked me if I could see anywhere on the letter if it said that he had cancer and he did not. I have never seen someone so grateful before! Ever since then I’ve not minded to speak with them.
  • More recently, I have been trying to get over my feelings of awkwardness if I see someone post how down they are feeling. I’ll post a picture or gif of a hug. Even if I don’t know them very well and have no idea what they are upset.
  • Saving a bee from the water, even though I’m allergic.

Also remember though Kindness does not equal weakness!

My Nominations:

*For my nominations I wanted to nominate all the Blogs that I follow that I consider to be kind. The only problem with that is all the Blog I read are kind, I wouldn’t follow anybody “nasty”. I have decided to go with some Blogs that I feel are fighting for people and are still responding to the haters with a lot more grace and kindness then these people deserve!*

Bookmark Chronicles – Bookmark Chronicles was probably one of the first people that I found and one of the first people that I followed on WordPress. I LOVE how she fights for POC, reminding and teaching us about History and the system. With so much grace along the way. The way she supports other Bloggers as well and how she writes…Beautiful!

Kindness Blog – I am a relatively new reader, but the Kindness Blog finds Kindness wherever they are writing about. If you are ever down and wanted something good to think about please read this Blog!

The Tony Burgess Blog  – I don’t think that there is a kinder Blogger than the Tony Burgess Blog. Even when he is not feeling himself, he still throws out so much kindness towards others…There is not way I could not nominate him!

What about you? What are some ways you show kindness?  How has someones act of kindness impacted you?

Thanks again, Rory!!

Love & Life Lessons,

Kristian
