Take the High Road and Be Nice

An interesting blurb from an article I read today...

Being nice is something that we should embrace, not just because we want something out of it, but because it just makes us a more fulfilled person inside.

If you consistently portray a nice personality, people are going to remember you for it, especially in a very competitive world. It’s hard to get past that initial fear of lending your hand out there, but if you’re willing to do so, not only will you be able to feel happier, but you’ll influence others in a positive way in which they may one day lend a hand back to you.

Like Jay Leno says, “Life is not that hard. Try giving a little. You would be surprised at how much you get back.”

Here's a small lesson I learned recently...you should never "expect" anything in return for your kindness. When you exhibit happiness without strings, only then are you truly generous!

Oh, and just because your are being thoughtful and kind doesn't mean that everyone else will be too, so you have to be prepared for that.
