“Because nice matters.”
That’s what the little plaque on my wall says and that’s exactly what my grandmother said too. It’s a motto that I’ve heard/lived by my whole life. This is a great article that explains why it might just matter to you too.
“You’ve heard it all your life: Being humble, kind, and calm is the “right thing to do.” But if that isn’t enough to convince you, consider this: humility, kindness, and calmness can actually help you get ahead in life.”
“One is happy as a result of one’s own efforts, once one knows of the necessary ingredients of happiness — simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and, above all, a clear conscience. Happiness is no vague dream, of that I now feel certain.” — George Sand
