On Being Nice...

I was reading the 3/50 blog today ( about their exposure on national news, and found a link to another great website. Operation NICE: Welcome to Operation NICE! Now, for those of you who know me, you'll probably agree that I'm quite an optimist. You can imagine my surprise when I came across this girl's website dedicated to being nice to others! Reading her original post, I thought, "this is something I would have done". A large part of being successful is being nice, in my opinion. Even in tough times, my Mom has always been a positive, supportive, strong woman. I'll give her credit for passing some of that on to me. I think that, in addition to my experiences with negative situations and people, has made the eternal optimist. My husband and I joke about my ability to look at the glass half full (as he does the opposite). In today's world, one important thing we can do is to be nice to others. Check out the Operation Nice website if you need a pick-me-up. It's full of stories about people just being amazing. I guess our parents were right to tell us to "play nice"!
