Hey everyone! I wanted to start a thread about something that's been on my mind lately: the power of small acts of kindness.
We often think of kindness as these big, grand gestures that take a lot of time and effort. But the truth is, it's the little things that can make the biggest difference in someone's day.
For example, holding the door open for someone, or offering a kind word to someone who looks like they're having a tough day. These may seem like small gestures, but they can have a huge impact on the person on the receiving end.

Good evening Twitter Family. I haven't tweeted in a while. Praying that everyone is safe and doing well.
So, I was blessed to be able to move into a rooming house (yay!). But the landlord didn't change the locks and the previous renter stole my things when I was at work. 😡
It's really difficult paying rent every week, commuting to and from work, buying groceries, etc. Then to have someone steal my things only made it harder. I really need hlp with buying a pair of quality shoes b/c I only hv my work boots and I really need to take care of my feet.
If u are able to contribute a donation, any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thank u all in advance. 💙 Please retweet 🙏🏼

I’m working on a piece that will expose an invisible epidemic that regular working class people know all to well. Media and society ignore it, because they don’t want to address the complex, often absurd inequities of the US medical system. I had recently had surgery (1/3)
abdominal wall #endometriosis excision (a procedure done by only 7 Drs in USA & NONE take insurance!) I’m #disabled on Medicare but they won’t cover this, they’ll only pay to remove my uterus! But they’ll pay for men to get boner pills! I’m rejecting the #mesh they placed. (2/3)
35yrs of chronic illness & pain I’ve seen the classism racism sexism capitalism ableism & patriarchy in the US med system is literally & figuratively crippling us. It’s gross that we have to do this for basic #HumanRights but if you’re able please help at my links in 4 (3/3)

Last week my friend’s @RamboTeaches brother was in a terrible crash in his semi. When the ambulance came to get him they found his puppy and travel companion, Bruno. (1/5) Image
Bruno rode in the ambulance - his dad went into surgery then Bruno had to go to a shelter. He was scared and far from home! 🥺 Luckily, a hero came forward. Nurse Janis Koren graciously offered to take Bruno until things could get sorted out. (2/5) Image
She opened her heart and her home to help a stranger. She took Bruno knowing he isn’t even fully potty trained! 💦 She thoughtfully sent pictures and updates to worried friends back home. (3/5)

If you can be anything, be kind.

What if your version of kindness does more harm than good?

10 ways that you may be misusing kindness.

//Thread//🧵 Image
1. You use kindness to support the route that is simple, easy, and obvious.

True kindness is doing what a person needs and what is best for them.

Often this involves deep consideration of what that might really be. Image
2. You only validate others’ emotions rather than also exploring the situation further, even when the emotions are based on inaccurate or unhelpful interpretations.

True kindness can involve a gentle challenge that can lead to authentic connection & possibilities for change.

I'd like to reinforce in English the observations Bishop @silviojbaez made yesterday in his homily concerning the practice of Gospel values by public servants. This may be of interest to @CarmeliteNick @CatholicForLife and many of our #CatholicTwitter followers.
Bishop @silviojbaez preaching: "Christian love has a social and political dimension. We love when we design & organize social life in such a way that no one suffers misery and no one is excluded; so that unjust suffering is eliminated & human rights are respected..."
"...For this reason, it's regrettable that there are political leaders who, in comfortable rooms, engage in ideological discussions and party strategies..."

N.B. #Nicaragua will have general elections this fall. If opposition parties don't unify, dictator Ortega wins

Everything builds on prior efforts:

“The point of setting ambitious goals isn't to experience joy. It's to pursue personal growth and mastery — or to create something of value for others.” @AdamMGrant

“The single best predictor of behavior is ease — more than price, or quality, or comfort, or desire, or satisfaction." @zoebchance

Even when something is not easy, some will try to navigate the path:

Morning! it's Snouty Saturday! 🐽

One of the #53pigs having a lazy morning in his special piggy barn.

He's safe, loved, warm and cosy which is simply what we all need and want. No matter what species we are.

This little guy was just a piglet when 👇…
he was seized from the illegal slaughterhouse at Bramble Hall Farm.

He then spent the first 9 months of his life in a Defra Isolation Unit under a court disease destruction order.

But after a legal battle he was allowed to come and live here at the sanctuary along with 👇
all the other #53pigs and #53piglets under a special disease restriction license.

We have nearly 100 pigs at the sanctuary. And like many we have had a very difficult year.

Please help us to create a safe, reliable feed fund to help pay the £1000 per week pig feed costs 👇

It's Nelson 🐷

Nelson is one of our very big & beautiful boars. He's a few metres long & around a metre high.

Most pigs will never make it to Nelson's size. Commercial, large breed pigs are often very poorly bred & often inbred. They are not bred for longevity 👇
Their lives only designed to be short lived before slaughter or just a few years of breeding & then they are past their best.

It's a cruel & ruthless world to be born into.

And in such a twist of fate the only reason that Nelson is alive today is because he was 👇
Seized from starvation at an illegal slaughterhouse.

Who knows what life we will land.

Can you imagine being born into a cold, harsh environment in a factory farm, where your life purpose is to be violently slaughtered.

We have nearly 100 pigs here at the sanctuary 👇

Dogs are Haram’ - There were times when I was reprimanded by my friends for patting a dog’s forehead & they still do. ‘It’s just a pat! And They’re created by the same God who created you’ was my reply to their disapproving stares or atleast that’s what
I convinced my little self. It was not until recently I stumbled upon an article which spoke about Muslims hurling stones & killing dogs because they consider it ‘unhygienic’ & then there’s some Muslims who approach the veterinary doc just to have the dogs
killed with lethal injections! The sole reason for this is the half-baked knowledge they possess. If we’re to look at Quran, we’re bound to learn that Dogs were companions of Humans.

Hi God.
It's me. Kuno.
I know there's lots of going on in the world and you're hearing lots of complaints. Today I want to say Thank You.
1 year ago me n my mentordog Roxy were put in the bedroom and listened as strangers came and took our mistress away in an ambulance.
I didn't understand what was going on, I just knew it was bad. Mistress's daughter came and stayed with us a long time. Many many moons.
A few times she would take Roxy dog with her, and when they came home I could smell mistress on Roxy and took comfort knowing she was ok.
Finally, after 40 days, I got to go with Roxy and we waited in a courtyard at the hospital. I FINALLY got to see my person ❤!!! But things had changed. She couldn't stand up and come to me. She stayed in a funny chair and was missing most of her legs.

1/9 So how do we know we are testing enough? One way is to monitor the % of positive tests among all of the #COVID19 tests conducted over the course of a week.
2/9 A high % positive, indicates that we may not be testing enough to detect all the cases. We want to cast our net wide around where the virus is spreading.
3/9 We aim for a low percentage positive, below 10%, which is an international benchmark. This indicates we are casting our net wide enough to capture any cases that may be occurring in the area.

1/5 @danjlevy said it best: “Imagine wearing a mask not as an infringement on your freedom, but rather the simplest, easiest act of kindness that you can do in a day...” #HelpOthers #COVID19 #KindnessMatters
2/5 Key point - while you may not personally feel at risk from #COVID19, the reality is that if you are infected you could be responsible for starting a new chain of transmission causing life threatening illness for others. #ProtecttheVulnerable
3/5 This is even more important because some people may not be able to wear a face covering safely, including people who may be at risk of severe outcomes from #COVID19. #ProtecttheVulnerable #HelpOthers #DontJudge
