While Adele may be busy Chasing Pavements, I’m busy chasing deadlines. Not much “free” time on my docket today but I wanted to leave you with a few thoughts. Actually one thought. Be nice. Be nice to others. Smile. Encourage others. Go the extra mile to just be a good person. Keep the meanness in check.
Its impossible to know what is going on in the life the the stranger you have never met. That person who cuts you off my be racing home to their sick child. The person who is grumpy and nasty may be over worked by a crazy boss who never says thank you. The angry man may be miserable inside and projecting onto the rest of the world. The spazzed out women may be trying to figure out how to feed her kids tonight.
Know that sometimes your kind word (or two) maybe be the only kindness they will receive today. Or this week. Or this month.
Be nice to others. It’s worth it.

Well said about being kind. Just like the NYC cop that bought that homeless guy boots in that viral picture from yesterday.
I missed the photo but heard about this on the news this morn when I was driving in. Soooo awesome. I was actually in amazement to be honest.

I’ve been thinking about this too! And so true…
“Be the change you wish to see”. A friend gave me a circle charm with this quote on it, I wear it a lot to remind myself. Thank you for the reminder on a day I didn’t wear the charm.
Beautiful … Take care this weekend and be well! 🙂
Very nice, Thank you for that reminder!!! I think everyone needs to be reminded of that now and again!! : )
Well said and opportune time to remind us all to be nice…and even nicer! Even if we weren’t the lucky few that won the mega powerball lottery!
Awesome!! Have a great weekend, Amanda! 🙂
Dude seriously… there are a LOT of wacked out people right now. I got honked, screamed at and flipped off by a guy in the truck on the Interstate the other day… still no freakin clue what I did. People need to chill the F out. So I like this post of yours. BE Happy. 🙂
Well said Amanda! I try to remind myself of this when someone is nasty to me.
