School’s in. At least it’s right around the corner.
Away on business, a friend could not make his kids’ first day of school, so he sent his wishes on the wings of Facebook:
Have fun. Be awesome. Give something. Help someone. Be kind. Respect your teachers. Question appropriately.
You can be anything you choose and that starts with good choices now.
Good advice for us all, really. After all, the days of musty smelling classrooms and old, cumbersome textbooks may come to a close, but the school of life is never really out. There’s always something to learn, always a problem to figure out. And just when we think we know all the answers, life throws a fast one, circumstances change, and we must learn it all anew.
So as we start a new week–whether it be school, or work, or play–let’s determine to have fun, to be great–even in the little things. Let’s give a little something, offer a helping hand to someone in need, and show a little kindness. Let’s look for those who can teach us a thing or two, and give them our respect. Let’s continue to question, to try something new, to learn, even now.
By doing so, who knows? Life just might turn out better than we had ever dared imagine . . .
