This quote is powerful because it is says so much. Being kind is the greatest power you can ever have. You never know how that touch on the shoulder, that little compliment or even just a smile may help someone. As an educator, I would have to remind myself that I didn’t know what happened to that student before he entered my classroom. I often chanted to myself – “Kill them with kindness.” Being kind isn’t always the easiest choice; but it is the choice that will have the longest lasting effect.
What can you do today to help turn someone’s life around?
As part of my 2018 goal to Spread Joy, I am sharing quotes, poetry, photos and sometimes just my thoughts on Thursdays — Thoughtful Thursdays. My hope is that these posts will help me (and maybe others) focus on the joys of life.
Thoughtful Thursday Link Up
I’d love to have others join me. It’d be wonderful to have a full-page of great quotes, poetry and photos to share. Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org your positive or thoughtful quote, photo or poetry along with your post link by 2:00 PM CST each Wednesday. We are working on spreading joy; so please stay positive. I’ll combine everything and post on Thursday afternoon. (You do not have to be a Word Press blogger or write a post to participate; but I will post your link if you choose to write a post.)
