A KIND OF LOVING – for the kind kindred series on KIND OVER MATTER
‘Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.’ – Dalai Lama
What does being kind mean to you? Perhaps it’s helping someone out, giving a gift or simply offering a compliment, but being kind can also mean having a loving and forgiving attitude.

Carolyn Hughes never intended to have an alcohol dependency. Like many, she took her first drink as a teenager, but over a period of 20 years her occasional use turned to regular abuse and eventually she was completely alcohol dependent. Today she is no longer controlled by her alcoholism, but after 16 years of sobriety has learned to control her condition and enjoy her life. How did she make the transition? This is her story.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? DISCOVERING THE PERSON YOU WERE MEANT TO BE
Who do you want to be? If you’ve experienced traumas that have left you numb, or the pressures of an image-conscious, success-driven society are forcing you to live your life trying to be someone you’re not, perhaps it’s time to start finding out who you really are.

Believing for a breakthrough.
Do you ever doubt God? Wonder if he hears your prayers? Even question your faith?
It’s easy to pray and praise when life is going well, but sometimes you can feel as if every day is a challenge and that finding the joy in your life is becoming harder. Whether you are trapped in the past, fighting a downward spiral with each day or are fearful of the future, you need a breakthrough.
Like many writers I want my work to be recognisable by its unique and individual style. For me, it’s crucial that what and how I write reflects my authentic self. Anyone who has read my blog The Hurt Healer will be familiar with the fact that I share from the heart. It’s a deliberate approach to enable readers to relate to and hopefully be encouraged by my words. Authenticity means being genuine and real. Much as I would love to reveal only my good side, to be true to my work I have to disclose my whole self.

“Abuse. Loss. Betrayal. Rejection. Abandonment. Any form of emotional pain that hurts you deeply can in turn make you hurt others. Or even hurt yourself. Left unresolved these issues can develop into long-term anger, resentment and fears that impact on our relationships. Without healing we can develop anxieties, health issues, depression and addictions that harm ourselves and those around us. But there is a way to end the cycle of hurt and that is through forgiveness.”…….Read more of this post: http://takeitfrommeg.com/2013/05/08/hurt-people-hurt-people-by-the-hurt-healer/ Please do leave a comment.

It’s easy to name writers who were known drinkers yet have managed to achieve great things; Ernest Hemingway, Dylan Thomas, James Joyce are among those who regularly used and in some cases abused alcohol. But does drinking actually aid the creative process or does it simply make you believe that your artistic faculties are enhanced?
