This may be a bold statement….to say that something is life-changing, but I can tell you it’s true.
I had a moment to reflect on this today, at the post office of all places.
Now understand, I have never been treated rudely or poorly at the post office. However, usually things are rushed and the workers are trying to hurry to get to the next customer and it’s just a quick transaction and nothing more.

However, today was different.
I was the only person in line, and perhaps that helped.
But I must say, it was so refreshing to have a light—nice conversation with the worker helping me at the post office.
He told me he hoped I was having a good day, and then we talked about the weather—and how the massive snowstorm had effected the postal service trucks from getting places on time.
We were cheerful and nice to one another.
It was simple and easy.
And it made me think…wouldn’t being “nice” be life-changing to the world?
I myself, as we all do, have gone through some challenging times… and when people are rude and inconsiderate, it tends to cut deeper when life is already hard.
However, on the flip side… when ours days have been tough and hard, having someone be NICE is so uplifting and rewarding.
And most the time, it’s not hard to be nice.
It’s quite easy to talk kindly and considerate to others.
Yes, I truly believe, that being “nice” can be life-changing.
You never know how one simple act of kindess can change the course of a human life.
So why not try and be as kind, considerate, and as nice as possible?
