The responses to my posts yesterday--on facebook and on here--were pretty astounding. So, here's what I'm proposing--let's proclaim Tuesdays as the NICE HAPPENS day. Every Tuesday. Every week.
I know, we all strive to be nice every darn day. That's the way we're wired. You know, one of the reasons poor behavior makes news is because it's an aberration. If rudeness becomes normal we're all in trouble. But too often it feels like we're surrounded by not niceness. And we want to take back the NICE. So, what the heck, let's do it.
Let's all go out of our way today (and every TUESDAY) to show niceness. Grace under pressure. Pleasantness. Let's set the example. Let the guy with two items step in front of you in the grocery line. Smile at the person who scowls at you. Notice those who are nice to you. Talk it up.
Let's be Beyonce rather than Kanye.
(Can I just say that my buddy Carleen Brice came up with this Tuesday idea--she's a genius!)
