So, here is our quote of the day from a source unknown. “The world is filled with nice people, if you can’t find one, be one.”
Now that is pretty to the point, but it reminded me of the many times in a day that we all have a choice to be nice or not.
Try this trick I learned as a kid. Start with waking up and if you have a mate, say something nice. If not, do something nice for yourself.
Your first moment out of the door, make nice to someone. It can be waving at a passerby or just saying thank you at the check out counter.
At work, perform a nice gesture. Get someone coffee or open a door or just blurt out a nicety. Never know, it may grow on you.
Finally, before going to bed that day, again be nice to yourself or hug your pup.
Four little moments of kindness each day will take your mind off of life’s routines and indifference and into a peaceful place. Give it a shot and, hey, keep it up.
