Nice

We should do nice things more often.

Nice things don't cost you much. Sometimes they cost you time, and sometimes money, but sometimes the returns from that are really far more invaluable than money.

The thing about doing something nice is that you have to be honest with yourself why you're being nice. Are you being nice because you want the credit of something? Do you want a pat on your shoulder? Or are you really being nice because you really want someone else to be happier?

These are very two different motivations, and important because sometimes you may not necessarily get what you expect back in return. Key word here being what you expect. If you don't expect, you won't be disappointed.

One of the things I want to do next is buy a homeless man lunch. (I haven't seen that many people here homeless, but I think it will be a good gesture).

But it's not just about the homeless.

I'm going to try more random acts of kindness. If you know someone is not feeling good, try and do something about it. Sometimes, all it really requires is a little effort. Sincerity is worth a lot.

Good night, everyone!
