I am a lover of courtesy. It's the little things that really matter in the big scheme of things. The world feels a little sunnier when appreciation is shown or effortless favors are observed. It's in those moments when I realize people are still good at heart.
These are little acts of courtesy I practice every day...
Say a simple please or thank you.
Give the "wave of thanks" when passing on the freeway.
Hold the door open.
Let someone with less items go ahead of me at the store.
Switch it up and tell the cashier to "Have a good day!"
Give compliments to strangers.
Remember that little acts of kindness can go a long way. They can brighten someone's day. They are reminders that the world isn't such a bad place. They are simple. They are free. They are only of yourself. They are beautiful.
