Did you know that being nice to others can actually be good for you?

My mother always chided me to be nice.  Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t.  After all, we all get grumpy from time-to-time and take it out on those around us.

We can see that being nice to others is good for them, but did you know it is in your best interest too?  Recognizing the personal benefits of being nice might motivate us to do it a little more often like when that person cuts us off in traffic.  

What does it mean to be nice?

Niceness is rather vague.  What exactly does it mean to be nice? 

Well, in my mind, it means being kind, generous, agreeable, pleasant, respectable, friendly, forgiving and tactful.  It means going out of your way to treat others in the way that you want to be treated.

The best portion of a good man’s life – his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.  
~William Wordsworth

Being nice when you get cut off in traffic, means that instead of assuming the driver is an insane jerk and giving them the bird, you give them the benefit of the doubt.  Maybe they didn’t see you or maybe they were late for a very important meeting or maybe they just made a mistake. 


Why not just smile and let it go?  It is good for you to be nice in these situations.

Being nice also means doing kind acts.  It means volunteering, donating and pitching in to make your home, neighborhood and community a better place. 

It means offering yourself to a cause that you believe to be worthwhile.  This might be something big like saving the environment or little like helping your spouse carry in the groceries.

Nice is such a small word, but it has big implications.  It takes a little time and effort, but it is all so incredibly worth it.

    I have lost my instruction booklet that goes with my cricut machine as well as my cds and I don't know how to get them back... Is there anyway that you can send them to me please ??????   I can't seem to work my machine without them and I really need them so if possible I would appreciate if you could send them to me...   I really want to get started back on my cricut machine...  I am disabled and this is one of the things that I am able to do but cannot seem to do it without the instructions....    thank you for your help.....

    We've prepared great designs last weekend using your wonderful software, looking on our results having a glass of fresh ground coffee in the morning was a great feeling.

    Great software! It means we can visually create the cutting file and the layers that will make it spectacular before actually cutting the file. I like it!

    I agree with you, being nice means doing kind acts too.  It means volunteering, donating and pitching in to make your home, neighborhood and community a better place. Not everyone can understand this, it is important to me I feel better person by giving, all the best.
