Don't you wish everyone in the world was nice? I think about it constantly. Every time I come across a rude person that ruins my day, I think, "Things would be so different if that person was a bit nicer."
And I don't even mean "nice" like "volunteer 80 hours a week, give all my money to charity, donate the organs that I'm still using" kind of nice. I just mean common courtesy. Saying "please" and "thank you." I noticed how surprised I was when a Chick-fil-A drive thru person (give me a break, I was hungry) said "My pleasure!" with a big smile. Wow, that was nice. Or when a stranger lingered for an extra moment in order to hold a door open for me. Gosh, that was nice too.
But shouldn't that stuff be routine? Shouldn't we at least be considerate to our fellow mankind?
I thought that maybe a "campaign for niceness" was necessary. Now, I've started blogs before. I tend to give up quickly, but I'm hoping I can stay strong with this one because even if no one reads it, it can be like my happy-therapy for the day. So if you're like me and think the world could use a little more "NICE", check it out.
