Ok, I’m not going to get all sappy here about it being the holiday season and all that stuff and how we should all be better people blah blah blah.
But. We should all learn to nice. Nicer. Treat people better.
I’m trying really hard to be nicer, and “let it go”. Don’t let little things get to you. Look at the big picture. Be happy for what you have, don’t be sad for what you don’t have.
Sometimes, we are nicer to strangers than our own family. It’s weird that way. It’s like we have to put our best face forward and be nice and polite so people will like us, but then we treat our spouse/sister/brother/best friend like shit or take them for granted. We drop the façade of good manners.
I think it is important to still be nice. Especially to the people who are most important to us. I notice myself I start to be more critical of people I love the best. I tell myself it is because I want them to be the best people they can be. But I should just let them be the people they want to be.
This holiday season, this CHRISTMAS season, I am going to be nice. It is so much easier to be happy and nice, and then grumpy and persnickety. Don’t be a Grinch.
I must be feeling better. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. It makes be feel better to be a happy person, and to make others happy.
