Food stamps. I needed some new art for the living room, so I used images related to food stamps to make a digital collage and had it printed on canvas; I like how it turned out. Why food stamps? I wanted to reclaim the power of the images. #poverty #dignity #kindness Image
I have a complicated relationship with food stamps (today we call it SNAP). I’m grateful we had food stamps so we could eat when I was young. There’s one painful memory I can’t shake.
Mom sent me to a grocery store in Greenwood in 1984 with a shopping list and a handful of food stamps which she’d torn out of the booklet they come in.

I’ve been collecting ideas & practice on what it means to bring kindness to online meetings & sessions. Here’s some of what people do and have shared. This week how #kindness can mean #slow. All v simple and intuitive.
People & group process needs ebb & flow over time to do good work. An act of kindness can to add small islands of recovery and peace into sessions. A hand drawn simple sunburs...
Before the session. Write up & share key questions & process you will be working on together. It’s important for accessibility & lowers cognitive load for people as they navigate the session, deepening the quality and inclusivity of the conversation

Today my landlord kicked me out coz I didn’t pay 1 month’s rent even after paying advance rent in the past 7 years. The labourer who moved my goods said “Bura waqt hai, jo aapke paas ho, jo dene ka mann ho, vo dijiye.” #LockedDown
He didn’t quote even once, even when I insisted. I paid him. He didn’t count the money, he didn’t bargain. He thanked me, gave me his number, asked me to call him if I need something else. #kindness #lockeddown
You don’t need to go to school to learn to be kind. You need not have a strong Balance Sheet to be kind. You only need to keep in touch with the human in you. #LifeLesson #Kindness #LockedDown

Step back & ask what is money?

Biggest threat to wealthy is exposing worth is a malleable human invention

@Teri_Kanefield nails it—democracy vs hierarchy

Declaration of Independence’s equal worth clashes with our innate differences

To what extent does worth lie in our humane treatment of others?

In our abilities, activities in context of others?

In our accumulation of wealth through our exchanges?

Worth & worthiness & our tenuous clutching to our own value frames freedom & humane choices or lack of them.
What’s likely driving the fervor to restart the economy at the expense of others lives is a fear that the longer we continue relying on essential workers previously labeled “menial” & “low value” we openly expose the lie that wealth is worth.

That we afford what we value.

*Mental health thread*

At least 1 in 4 of us are suffering with mental health illnesses.

We are all human and we do not know what trouble the human beside us is facing.

🙏 CHOOSE to listen, support, be kind & fair.

Your hello and smile may be what gives someone strength.
The thing about mental health is that it can seriously affect how we see things, how we perceive ourselves and others around us.

Negative thoughts of failure or self-criticism or loss of confidence being wrongly reinforced by how others treat us can affect how we feel.
Eventually it can all become overwhelming.

One can feel that they can no longer cope.

Choose not to be the person who takes away someone’s sense of security, self belief, sense of achievement or confidence.

*Happiness thread"

Happiness is a range of feelings from positive emotions to great joy.

Happiness changes the way we see ourselves and situations. Our happiness affects how we react in situations and interact with others.

#Happiness is a choice.

#Happiness is infectious

Happiness maximises our ability to look after ourselves. Happiness supports more exercise, better socializing, healthy eating, good sleep hygiene.

* Burnout thread *

Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.

3 dimensions:

- feeling exhausted

- feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job

- reduced professional efficacy.
Burn-out is included in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as an occupational phenomenon.
Burnout is more likely to happen if we:
1) don't feel valued
2) don't feel like we are making an impact
3) have no autonomy over a situation

ONLY biological purpose of pain is to ALERT the being to stop & possibly eliminate pain immediately or gradually (reduced activity over time)
or can’t be fixed meaning instant or gradual death (wounded being dies slowly or picked off from the herd)
those supporting catastrophizing (other than outright falsehoods, exaggerations - nothing on this list) are looking for simplistic answers to sweep some of us under the rug that we’re not tough enough (we are) or cookie cutter medical cases (we aren’t)
my truth to these “questions of agenda”

1. He lacks compassion.
The Bible says: “As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with #compassion, #kindness, #humility, #meekness, & #patience.” (Colossians 3:12)
2. He appeals to fear and anger- “But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; if you say ‘You fool,’ you will be liable to the hell of fire.” (Matthew 5: 22)
3. enamored with “greatness” & ego not goodness
“Blessed are meek, they will inherit earth. Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness, they will be filled. Blessed are merciful, they will receive mercy. Blessed are pure in heart, they will see God” (Matthew 5: 5-8)

1] Dear World,
Tonight my heart has broken. As I look through the Twitterverse, I can smell the hated, see the seething self righteousnessof people who no longer have any compassion, dignity, moral compass or love for any human being.
2] The political turmoil in every country around the world is at a fever pitch. Left Vs Right, every shred of common sense, decency and respect afforded to us has been thrown out the widow.
To take a break from the insane world I was viewing, I took a step away & went inside...
3] I went to check on my sleeping boys to ensure they were okay....then it hit me...& it hit me like a sucker punch to the gut. What sort of world were my boys going to inherit, how could they possibly survive the onslaught of everyone telling them what they should be....

1/ On #WorldKindnessDay let's talk about two ideas in alleged tension, both of which should be re-framed by their relationship to kindness. (1) "Political correctness" and (2) #civility
PC is always a complaint. Civility a demand. They're used as weapons of the status quo.
2/ When people complain about political correctness they're saying opportunities for kindness are oppressive. POC, LGBT, women, or disabled say "X language is unkind. It hurts us and it's a symbol of oppression and dehumanization." Reaction: you threaten my freedom.
3/ Freedom for what? To hurt your neighbors, to treat them as less human, to put them in their places, to retain your own discursive place at the top, a bull in a china shop. Make no mistake: complaints about PC are objections to human decency. That's it.

2. & directly cause a storm thousands of miles away, the lesson is powerful. The repercussions of our actions, both spiritual and physical, are far more complex than we can fathom. A sharp or snarky remark can be the arrow that pierces a person’s self-esteem.
3. A seemingly small, kind comment or good deed can be the key that unlocks another’s untapped strength. Every thought, word, and action, is like a pebble cast into the sea, causing immeasurable ripple effects. You may think to yourself, “But I’m just 1 out of 7 billion people?

This is my wife with Presidents @BillClinton and Bush. We’re now back from an incredible few days in Little Rock for her @PLSprogram program. Highlights included talking to President Bush about his Mom, and the total madness of
Cori being seated next to W. for dinner. More important, in this time of massive political divisiveness, perhaps my favorite part was watching these two men — from opposite sides — find common ground, laughing, sharing, and being open and honest about their hardest days and
greatest regrets. As they pointed out, it is far easier to see our enemies as two-dimensional villains, rather than three-dimensional people. (I’m saying this especially to all the people who will write comments below about how they hate Clinton or Bush or Iraq or

1) We are each a spark of the Divine. Worthy as ever. And yet, sometimes we lose sight of our inherent value. That inner voice can become muffled by the narratives we play over and over in our mind. What are the messages that wear us down? In this moment, let’s challenge them.
2) What has caused us to forget that we are deserving? In this moment, let’s remind ourselves that our capacity for growth and strength is incredible. How can we reframe our experiences and begin viewing our lives from a more elevated perspective?
3) Are we ready to stop buying into old thoughts patterns and start trusting more empowering ones? Know this – there is so much more in store for you. The more we begin to believe this, with God’s help, the sooner we will receive what we hope, pray, and strive for. #believe
