I’m a bit of a Coke-Cola nut and one of my favorite ads of all time is begins with, “I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke”. As a kid listening to that song I couldn’t think of anything nicer than to share my favorite beverage, sing, and do kind things for other people. Yes, yes as a child you can see that I had some “coke bottle” thick, rose colored glasses, but really what would our campus look like if each of us were intentionally more kind? If we started going above and beyond to spend our days showing kindness to each student, staff, faculty, and administrator we come into contact with, what would the possibilities be? Would we see more smiles, more openness, and even more successes!
If you’ve taken time to read this post I challenge you (as I’ve challenged myself) to focus each day to be kind to those you encounter. I’d enjoy hearing about your experiences over a Coke…on me.
