I was just reminded that today is world kindness day, choose kindness over anything today-and ERRYDAYYY. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted 💖💖 Put down whatever it is you are doing and spread the love 🌈 xx
This is a flap from a lobster pot from North America. Traps are fitted with special escape vents to allow any undersized animals to escape.
These trap doors are fitted to the trap with metal rings that over time, rusts away. Fishermen have to replace the rings regularly but it means that that if the trap is lost on the seabed the rings will rust and break, releasing the vent and allowing the animals to escape! This avoids ghost fishing and the lobster can be free to be caught another day

Այսօր Նոյեմբերի 13՝ Բարության միջազգային օրն է
Բարության միջազգային օրը (World Kindness Day) սկսել են նշել 1998 թ.-ից, երբ Տոկիոյում անցկացվում էր Բարության համաշխարհային շարժումը (World Kindness Movement): Այդ շարժմանը մասնակցում էին Ավստրալիայի, Կանադայի, Թաիանդի, Մեծ Բրիտանիայի, ԱՄՆ-ի ներկայացուցիչները:
🇮🇹 Il #13dicembre, ci dicono, è la #GiornataMondialeDellaGentilezza. Sono tempi di fastidio, questi; tempi di educazione complicata e rancorosa. Però, nel nostro piccolissimo, abbiamo la fortuna grande d’essere circondati da persone gentili. Uno shoutout come si deve va, per esempio, alle colleghe contastorie @tina_manga e @nudaperla: quando mettono in pausa lezioni&progetti e ci aiutano ad allestire gli eventi grandi, uniche aiutanti merendaie che accettiamo davvero, più che gentili diventano piccole eroine munite di... vodka, in certi casi. E voi? Per quali atti di gentilezza siete grati, oggi?
🇬🇧 December 13, they say, it’s #WorldKindnessDay. We live in angry times; times of complicated, raging behaviours. We do have the immense luck of being surrounded by kind people, though. A proper shoutout, for example, goes to our fellow storytellers #ValentinaManganaro and #LuciaGaiotto: when they set aside their lessons and projects in order to help us set up some big events, as the only #ToastHelpers we actually accept, they reveal themselves as more than kind: as little heroines equipped with... vodka, in some cases. And you? Which acts of kindness are you grateful for, today?
U will not always be the smartest person in the room, and u will not always be the strongest or the funniest or the most talented🧕🧕 But you can always be brave and you can always be kind and these are the things u should be very minute of every day for the rest of your life.because yes those other things, they're great things. But these things are better🤙☺️ Instead of condemning people,let's try to understand them, let's try to figure out why they do, what they do. That's alot more profitable intriguing than criticism ;and it breeds sympathy, tolerance and kindness🌟☺️❤️ Your greatness is measured by your kindness; your education and intellect by your modesty ; your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices, and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance u have for others🧕😊🌟 #behonest#bekind#quoteoftheday#quotes#loveuall#loveyourself#beingselfobsessed#dowhateveruwant#followforfollowback
❤️World kindness day ❤️
Lochlan and I read this book last night for the first time and its absolutely brilliant at helping kids understand the importance of being kind.
Afterwards he told me what to write on his kindness board for today 💙
He can be a little shite like all kids but I’m going to be drumming this into his little head to make sure he grows up to be an amazing young man!
I love Nature. I venerate her. Each leaf, each drop of rain each string of grass. Not to talk about trees and clouds and flowers, and so on. ALL of it. We are one, we are united. And when we feel in conflict with her, that’s when things get messy. That’s when a rain storm becomes a pain in the neck when instead it is always a blessing, and most of us have forgotten that. That’s when trees fall down and break and give up and protest against all the madness and sickness surrounding. In Rome lately we have had lots of this. It sorrows me, it literally breaks my heart. But today is a beautiful day and I actually started this post to invite you all to take a break, to feel the earth under your feet, to feel the scent of morning grass, to feel from where the winds reached you today, to be grateful generous and to be kind. Also, today is my birthday! And I wish for nothing more then for each one of you who reads the post to take a minute, and feel blissful for all that surrounds you. #love#happybirthday#nature#plants#meditation#bekind#motherearth#plantspirit
//go with the flow// Slow days can be hard as a mumma, we can expect so much of ourselves and feel like we have achieved nothing. The kind of days where we haven't showered, changed out of our PJ's and feel like you've been breastfeeding all day. Days when we wanted to make the beds, vacuum the floor, and do the dishes but literally none of those things got done and you just sit and feed all day long. Those kind of days are not a waste, those kind of days do not mean you're failing as a mother and those kind of days definitely do not define you. Embrace the pajama days, grab that tub of ice cream and just go with the flow because not only will you rest your tired body you will start learning to be kind to yourself. This almost unheard of 'be kind to yourself' doesn't mean that you've neglected others, in fact when you look after yourself, be kind to yourself and stop the endless expectations on yourself everyone around you will receive a happier more content you and that is one of the best gifts you can give your family. ❤
