Good Afternoon Friends!
I hope you all are having a great start to the week. Today we’re going to discuss family and love. Over the years I’ve come to learn that the people who make up your family doesn’t need to be related by blood. Family are the people who stick by you through thick and thin. They are the people who tell things to you honestly, and with the best intentions. They are the people who are loyal, and don’t hold grudges when disagreements happen. They are the people who are there for you, even if time goes by without talking and life gets busy. In Disney’s “Lilo and Stitch” Lilo teaches the alien Stitch the classic phrase (say it aloud if you know it!):
Ohana means family. And family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. -Lilo
Are you ready to explore Lilo and Stitch more with me? Then, let’s dive in! ❤
Kindness: is practicing benevolence and having a loving attitude towards others.
In the beginning of the movie we meet a little girl named Lilo who is struggling with her home life and school peers. Her parents have both died, so she is left in the care of her loving, older sister, Nani. Nani is working hard to provide for them both, but money is tight and time is scarce. As such, Lilo is often left home alone and has to get imaginative with keeping herself busy. She makes dolls and creates pretend-play games to keep her mind occupied. One day Lilo meets an alien-experiment who has escaped from captivity named Stitch. Thinking that he is an odd pet, she takes him home and is determined to teach him right from wrong.
Stitch isn’t an easy creature to tame, and Lilo learns as much when Stitch repeatedly scares the locals, tears up the house, and even breaks Lilo’s favorite guitar! Yet, Lilo’s kindness and love begins to teach Stitch the true meaning of family and unconditional love. Despite getting angry with Stitch, (as all families argue), she doesn’t abandon him. She loves him and tells him the error of his ways. She is honest and frank about her feelings, which also helps Stitch to learn right from wrong. Then, as he begins to improve she praises him with kindness and support. It is her steadfast love, kindness, and dedication to the true meaning of family that makes Lilo an excellent role model for Littles! 🙂

Using toilet paper rolls and markers, design some tiki totems to bring a little bit of Hawaii right into your home! ❤
IV. Personal Development Lesson:
How many times have you heard that popular saying, “If you can be anything, be kind”? I know I’ve heard it hundreds of times. And while it is a valuable lesson for us all to apply to our lives, we can take the character quality of kindness and apply it to our Cg/l relationship as well. It may seem like a “no-brainer” to be kind to our dominant, but you would be surprised at how easily Cg/l relationships can go awry. The submissive is inconsistent with communication. The dominant loses their temper easily. The Little brats the dominant in unhealthy ways and causes unnecessary stress. The dominant ignores their submissive which in turn erodes trust in the relationship.
However, if we put kindness at the core of all that we do then we will move with intention, warmth, and love. Our actions will demonstrate respect and honor to our relationship. And our partner will feel our kindness and (hopefully!) respond the same way. Here are a few ways to weave kindness into your Cg/l relationship on a daily basis:
- Ask your dominant for permission to do small things in your day to day life.
- Be genuinely excited to spend time together! They will feel your kindness and excitement and feed off of your energy.
- Be extra supportive and kind when your dominant has had a hard day. Make space to listen to them vent out their feelings.
- Make time for Little Space together. Sometimes you will schedule it. Sometimes your dominant will schedule it. Make it happen!
- Play music that puts you both in Little and dominant space.
