Try A Little Kindness
So often in our world today, so many people place success on the back of the amount one is worth. Living in one of the most expensive places in the U.S. certainly makes all of us work hard for the life we have. I do feel that I am very lucky and, I would even say, blessed to be able to live and work where I do.
With that in mind, I also want to be aware when a colleague shares with me the positive things that are happening in their day. I want to be thoughtful about helping others in my role as principal. And I want to model kindness to others as a means to helping my community.
This week’s kindness quote is more than just a platitude of good words. It can really be words by which we can live a better and more fulfilled life. Every day, my hope is that I can come to school and uplift, support, and maybe increase the kindness factor by just a bit more.
I, just like anyone, have my moments when I’m not fully able to achieve these hopes, but that is why I am given yet another day to start again. Until next week, keep practicing kindness Cabrillo!
