It only costs a little more to go first class! My mom and I used to say that to each other, often when we were debating purchasing some new bright shiny object.
The meaning, however, goes deeper…much deeper. It’s refers to creating a first class experience for the human race by simply being willing to ‘spend’ a little more. What if we were to…
F: Forgive a little more. C: Connect a little more.
I: Inspire a little more. L: Love a little more.
R: Relate a little more. A: Accept a little more.
S: Share a little more. S: Smile a little more.
T: Teach a little more. S: See a little more.
What would our world be like? Our connections would be deeper; bonds would be stronger, and relationships would thrive. Can I dare to dream that loneliness would be a thing of the past? The elderly would be exalted and not ignored. Bullying would be a thing of the past because we would value each other and sing the praises of diversity. Violence would be a forgotten word that future generations would have to Google to know its meaning. We would create a first class world.
I want to live in a first class world so it starts with me, today; it starts with spending a little more. Hug my hubby a little longer, go out of my way to talk to a stranger, load someone’s groceries into their car at the market, find something good in those who irritate me.
Yes, this all may sound too good to be true, a fanciful and unattainable dream. But what if we don’t? What if we don’t try to spend a little more? What is THAT world like?
So I say let’s dream big, a first class dream! Let’s spread the word and create a movement… the “It Only Costs A Little More To Go First Class” movement. Simply download your very own First Class Badge HERE and post it on social media with how you plan to spend a little more to go first class.
After all…it only costs a little more to go first class!
