Have you done something nice today?
Has someone done something nice for you?
If you were thinking yes to either question then yay. Doesn’t it feel good to know that there are good people out there especially here? I know I always feel more comfortable at a place where everyone’s so friendly and I’m sure you do too. It’s so much easier to open up and be yourself in an environment like that. This is how we make our life long friends and make these memories that stay with us forever. And ya know what, it’s not that hard to do. All it takes is a simple smile and hello or “hey what’s up” or “how’s it going?” to make someone’s day and to make them feel special.
So find the time to do a simple act of kindness that makes a difference. Whether it’s saying hello, holding a door open, or even giving someone a much needed hug. Friendly little gestures like these only make the world a better place.
