Show Up For Yourself

Published June 30, 2020 by tindertender

I do it every day.

Sometimes I dance with myself, sing to myself, have play dates with myself, fall in love all over again with myself.

I have debates (of course I always win too!)

Mostly, I just sit with myself and think you’re the most loyal, best friend I’ve ever had!

And then I remember,

I’m never alone!

It’s That Time Of Year Again

THEY FIND THEIR WAY INTO OUR HOMES LOOKING FOR SAFETY

WHEN YOU FIND A BUMBLEYBEE THAT CAN’T FLY, FIRSTLY YOU CAN PICK THEM UP – THEY WILL NOT STING UNLESS YOU HURT THEM AND ARE SAFE TO HANDLE

SECONDLY, POP THEM IN A TUB IF THEY WILL LET GO OF YOUR WARM HAND

THIRDLY, MIX WARM WATER AN SUGAR TOGETHER AND HOLD SOME IN A TEASPOON INFRONT OF THEM TO THEIR FRONT LEGGIES

THEY WILL EXTEND THEIR PROBOSCIS (INBUILT CURLY STRAW) AND DRINK.

THEN TAKE THEM OUTSIDE, THEY WILL GROOM, MAYBE PEE ON YOU AND WILL FLY OFF

WHEN THEY ARE SAT UNABLE TO FLY AND STICK THEIR LEGGIES IN THE AIR IT’S BECAUSE THEY’RE VULNERABLE AND TRYING TO FLY.

THEY ARE COLD AND NEED ENERGY

DO NOT GIVE THEM HONEY

KEEP THEM WARM AN FEED THEM SUGAR WATER

THIS SAVES A LIFE

A Powerful Message

Our furry friends are not the only ones we ought to care for on this holiday, July 4th.

Blowing stuff up is not the highlight to life …

Contrary to popular belief.

When we show compassion to others, we will begin to see others are compassionate toward us.

Not before then.

Teaching of Superior Spirits

Question: “Does man have the right to retire in old age?”

Answer: “Yes. No one is required to labor beyond his capacity.”

Question: “But what options so senior people have available when they must earn a living while not being able to do so?”

Answer: “The strong should work for the weak. In the absence of a family to provide for them, society should take its place. That is the Law of Charity.”

Dear teenage boy at the skate park

Published June 9, 2020 by tindertender

The “Pay it Forward” Effect

You’re probably about 15 years-old, so I don’t expect you to be very mature or for you to want a little girl on your skate ramp for that matter.

What you don’t know is that my daughter has been wanting to skateboard for months. I actually had to convince her that skateboarding wasn’t just for boys.

So when we walked up to the skate park and saw that it was full of teenage boys, she immediately wanted to turn around and go home.

I secretly wanted to go too because I didn’t want to have to put on my mom voice and exchange words with you.

I also didn’t want my daughter to feel like she had to be scared of anyone, or that she wasn’t entitled to that skate park just as much as you were.

So when she said, “Mom it’s full of older boys,” I calmly said, “So what, they don’t own the skate park.”

She proceeded to go down the ramp in spite of you and your friends flying past her and grinding rails beside her.

She only had two or three runs in before you approached her and said “Hey, excuse me…”

I immediately prepared to deliver my “She’s allowed to use this park just as much as you guys” speech when I heard you say, “Your feet are wrong. Can I help you?”

You proceeded to spend almost an hour with my daughter showing her how to balance and steer, and she listened to you – a feat not attained by most adults.

You held her hand and helped her get up when she fell down and I even heard you tell her to stay away from the rails so that she wouldn’t get hurt.

I want you to know that I am proud that you are part of my community, and I want to thank you for being kind to my daughter.

She left the skate park with a sense of pride and with the confidence that she can do anything, because of you.

Meditative Prayer

Published May 24, 2020 by tindertender

Rocking the body, I breathe.

Shivers begin to flow through me, electrifying. Warm.

Bless me, Ancestors, as I flow my way home. Blend me with your wisdom and grace. Allow me your swiftness, your sharpness. Show me what Resilience really means.

Fill me with your fire, your unquenchable thirst for what is right, good and true.

Show me how to better care for self so that I may be better prepared to care for others.

Grant me your transmutational Power.

Teach me.
