Random Musings: The Strength of Kindness…

Standard

kindness1

I am so tired of people being made to believe that there is weakness in Being Kind and there is something wrong with you if your natural response to lifes bumps and challenges is to proceed in a spirit of kindness . If you only show kindness to those you deem to be worth showing kindness to, doesn’t that in fact mean that you are not genuinely a kind person but rather one who exchanges kindnesses as a currency and gives only to receive in return? A truly kind person is a person of strength as they courageously give kindness regardless of another persons perceived worth or ability to return the favor. Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

No matter how others will behave I shall always be me and treat people with respect, kindness, and even gentle understanding. Everyone is worth your kindness & those who don’t appreciate it are actually the ones who truly need it the most. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it gives them permission to be kind themselves. Does having this philosophy mean I may get hurt or disappointed? YES….but I prefer to live a life that brings moments of pain while being Genuinely Me rather than choosing to tiptoe through life, hiding away the heart & soul of me, in an attempt to avoid giving of myself in any way that could lead to possible hurt or disappointment. Does this make me a fool? Perhaps……..but in the end I can only BE Honestly & unapologetically ME. ~ Twin Spirit

Random Musings: Don’t You Forget

Standard

Ode to Candy

You Inspired this Poem Today. Hope You Enjoy!!

Don’t You Forget (Candy’s Song) by Twin Spirit

A few words so you won’t forget
cause little sis I don’t think you realize you are the shit.
To the table so many gifts you bring.
to NO ONE do you have to prove anything.
It never really matters what others may think
in the chain of your dreams
you’re the strongest link.

Focus less on if you have arrived
because the journey & lessons are the prize.
Never worry what their motives may be
when you are guided by Spirit, you see
there’s no way you can ever lose
it’s all in the perceptions you chose.

So go wherever your heart may lead
let your love & your passion plant seeds.
Worry not if the seeds planted will grow
for we always reap what we sow.

Know this and don’t you forget
you can only receive what you expect.
So limit not the reach of your spirits call
by settling for less or thinking small.

They say the Sky is the limit, that’s a lie
there is NO LIMIT to how high YOU can fly.
You can travel yonder, hither, & far,
but wherever You go there YOU are.

The secret to success is YOUR State of Mind
Fear & worry are prisons…your spirit they bind.
There is nothing You can’t have, do, or Be
when you KNOW this my dear little sis….
then YOU are FREE ~ Love Always, Your Sis TwinSpirit
