It Doesn't Cost Anything Extra To Be Nice

It has been a tough semester. The combination of starting a new job and taking college classes has been, well, a lot of work! I am thankful I have wonderful people in my life who have been supportive and who have understood my need to step back, and as they say on Jersey Shore, "do me" for a while.

Some people have not been very supportive - to the point of trying to make me feel guilty for this. As hard as that is-- it says more about them and my relationship with them, then it does about me.

Through all of this -- I want to stress that even in my busiest moments I try to focus on small things I can do. When you're having a bad day - I'm sure most of you can attest, something little like someone cutting you off in traffic can set you off. So I'd like to create a mini public service announcement.  

It doesn't cost anything extra to be nice.
  • If you are walking in front of someone, hold the door. 
  • When you call someone on the phone, take a minute and ask "how are you doing today?" 
  • Give a compliment.
  • Say please & thank you!  
  • Smile.  
Have a lovely day everyone!
