Now Go & Tell That:

If you should ask, has my kindness ever been mistaken for weakness?
I’ll answer yes.

If you should ask, were there times I felt like being genuinely caring and humble made me out to be a laughing stock and doormat?
I’ll answer yes.

If you should ask if I believe that kindness is a bit much for the average person?
I’ll answer in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ” I’ve decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

 

Don’t get it twisted I’m only human.
However, if I can carry out one thing in my life. I would say it’s kindness.

I’m learning a lot on this journey. As become a conveyor for peace.
Kindness is transformative in ways I could not have understood before starting this chapter.

It’s a lot of forgiving of myself and then others.

It’s being able to see my flaws and scratches along with my skin and say I’m loving me. Even as I have made a mess of my life.

Just a kind word get’s me out of a moppey – poopey place.

And it’s only the beginning…~Krissy Mosley

Burnt Toast Sanctuary: (Don’t Worry Be Kind)

Burnttoast

Today I had the bright idea of blogging and making toast the old fashion way. Like, get out the butter and skillet. Put the bread in the pan and then start writing. My little house filled with all the same aromas like grandma’s house. The bread and butter melted in the pan. Soft hints of warm buttery goodness were everywhere.

That’s when it dawned on me that cooking and blogging may not have been such a great idea after all. Hence the title of this post.

However, It has taken me years to figure out how to apply kindness in my day to day life. Like being kind to your self even after you burn the toast. It’s still edible well some parts are. Nevermind, where was I?

Oh yes, sure going to Religious service with others who are generally in the ballpark of treating your neighbor like you would like to be treated helps a great deal.

Or allowing the person in front you take the time needed in making up their mind while you wait. All these things are kindness beatitudes. If you will.

For me, kindness is a sanctuary of things both unspoken and effective. A safety net that when in doubt show a little heart of kindness.

It may pay it off it may not,
but I’m walking away with no strings attached.

I gave you what I have.
No doubt about it.

Was it thoughtful?
Was it genuine? Was it Kind?
Did it spring from the heart?

So as I chew on some parts burnt some parts toasted just right. Don’t Stifle Kindness.

Be kind to your self and let that same kindness support you in being kind to others around you.

P.S. Might I add I’m a fan of burnt toast…

Meditations of Kindness

“Such as I have I give unto thee”

A kind light: I hold for myself and others to come.

Therefore I am a gentle creature for which I am thankful

I let go the cares of this world for my creator cares for me

I let this lovingkindness compass round about me

To be kind to myself and all that I see…~Krissy Mosley©2018

Dear Kindness:

I must say it feels good to start the day with a smile. While I know, I’m not a mushy, gooey person, there are times I prefer snowflakes while taking in my morning’s coffee.

I’m thankful that today is one of those days. It’s 7:21 am central standard time. The snow has begun to fall like hidden treasures white and gold.  So I  look forward to sharing smiles with the world today.

Dear Kindness, may you travel far and broad, from every heart to heart. Within the howling winds, from the shoreline to the coast. In between disagreements and moral codes.  And may the people of the earth know you were there and still

remain.~

your good friend

Krissy Mosley.

Thankful: To Write & Smile

Parmesan Cheese

The life of a writer is not always a happy one. However today, I have good news. I woke up this morning with a smile on my face. I said to myself- let’s go for it. So I’m giving it all I have and then some.

Yes, there are times, I’ve thrown in the towels. There were times I thought I might as well quit. Although it’s been a bumpy road with many rejections. I look forward to telling myself that there is more -keep going.

So I leave that with you, keep going. There is a yes underneath my manuscripts- time to dig in and go the distance.

Many blessings~Krissy Mosley
