I, as a typical earthbound human being who’s been around a little while have has my shares of up and downs during my life and while I feel I’ve changed dramatically over the course of the last few years.
One of the habits I’ve learned and implemented in my life is to always as much a I can, be polite. No matter what or how my day is going or how I feel.
I always find it interesting that some people I know have absolutely no sense of self control when having a bad day. we’ve all been there, the rude cashier at the local super market or the indifferent government employee that shows absolutely no desire to help you or answer a simple question.
Being consistently polite takes practice, and like exercising or meditating becomes habit only after some time.
Every day I go into a store or coffee shop, pass somebody in a hallway, I always make eye contact and give a smile. The person in focus doesn’t always respond in kind or just refuses to acknowledge anything.
Everyday is a battle to remain balanced in a world that seems to be listing over to the side as it takes on water.
This is an absolutely silly post created early in the AM, but I think It’s something worth mentioning.
