Please, Be Kind

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.

George Sand

Hello, Lovelies.

My wise grandmother always used to say, “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all”.

In these uncertain times of climate change, extreme weather events, the pandemic, economic hardship, lockdowns and elections there has been much division, much name-calling, much ridicule and hate speech and judgement. So much. Too much. None of that is helpful. None of that is healing.

But you CAN do something.

Let the change start with you.

Radiate calm. Radiate peace. Listen. Speak words of inclusion and connection. De-escalate. Come from a place of love and kindness. Show respect to all. Find practical ways to support others. Walk away from fights. Turn the other cheek to name-calling. Be a calm warrior, centered in your heart. Start in your own home, your own street, your own workplace. It all matters. Character matters. Kindness matters. Inclusion matters.

When we stop fighting, and start listening, healing happens.

Love, hugs and hope, Nicole xx

Our theme today is is ‘Friendship’. We’ll be talking about the importance of friendship, and the different kinds of friends that come into our lives, including friends we may have connection to from past lives.

Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.

  1. I always remember seeing Disney’s ‘Bambi’ movie when I was a child and the young rabbit character Thumper, when first introduced to the new fawn remarks that Bambi is “kinda wobbly.” Thumper is scolded by his mother, who makes him repeat what his father had impressed upon him that morning, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” This moral adage is known as “Thumper’s Rule”
    I had this drummed into me as a child by my Mum my Teachers and my Grandparents and it still applies today maybe even more so. Nowadays there are many folk who are eager to bring other persons down by whatever means possible and to what end? Step back take a breath and think of Thumper’s Rule
