Don't underestimate the value of nice.
There honestly is no substitute for genuine, heartfelt, nice.
You all know someone who's like that. Just nice. Not because he has to be. Not because someone told her to be. Not because he's trying to get something from you or the world. Just because she really is, well, nice.
Such a simple, quaint word...it seems silly to even mention it. But it's so true.
It has to be real, though. If it's not real, even a toddler can sense it. And it falls terribly flat. Might even grate on you. It might even piss you off. And that's not good.
Genuine, heartfelt nice.
Really. Be on the lookout for it.
And try it yourself.
