28 days of nice was harder than I thought.
I am basically a nice person.
If you were to list the attributes of Melinda, I am sure nice is on the list some where.
Maybe not at the top-- probably funny, crafty, happy, organized...would all come ahead of nice, but I am pretty sure nice would make the list at some point.
So this "Nice Month" is about thinking about nice above and beyond my normal call of duty.
I tried to keep a list of what that entailed for me to see if I was getting any nicer. Some times I only did the Nice thing because I knew I was making the list...it held me accountable, or hostage, as the case may be.
Some days took a lot of searching to find that little extra bit of NICE
1: Picked up other teacher's garbage
2: Sat by those I don't usually sit by....and talked.
3: Dropped everything and sat and rocked my girl!
4: Extra lovin for my Wayne
