Midweek Musings: Kindness - It's all about the little things!
I think we can all agree that kindness makes everything better, at least a little if not a whole lot. And I'm always saying that we need more kindness in academia and that we can never have too much of it! ❤️
While all of this is true, it's also true that kindness is often missed or underacknowledged because it tends to manifest itself in the simplest ways. It could be something as simple as someone inviting you to share a meal with them, or someone checking on you when they know you're not doing your best. However small, an act of kindness makes a big difference to people! And so today, I thought we could all express gratitude for kindness in academia by talking about our own little experiences.
So here's my question to you - Have you ever experienced kindness at work? What did it look like? Your answer could be the simplest of gestures. So, please don't hold back! 😊
