Positive Quote: “Exercise your nice muscles. Every day for the next week, do five nice things that have no immediate payoff for you. “– Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval – The Power if Nice
I am in the middle of reading the book “The Power of Nice” and the above message resonated with me; exercising your nice muscles. It reminds me that things don’t come naturally. You have to exercise your memory, your body, your pets, and yes, your nice muscles. Without exercise, it does not become a habit.
Most would say that being nice is not something to be exercised. Yet, I would disagree. Being nice is a show of respect, not just for others but for you. Being nice can be a smile, a thank you, a please, or many other things.
I think I will consciously take the challenge and strive to exercise my nice muscles today, tomorrow, and each day.

Have a wonderful Monday.
