The new decade brings out great joys to lots of different people, so take advantage of a new beginning. It’s times like these that give us a new start. So here’s a resolution that I know everyone can do ten times over: be kinder.
Nobody will want to be near you if you are greedy and hostile. So many more people will like you if you put them first once in a while. It can be as simple as just giving a $5 tip at a restaurant or cafe once in a while. If you can make people’s life that much easier, they will make yours like that too.
It’s a ripple effect. It will spread like a contagious disease, but in a good way. And you know what? If everyone was nice, there would be world peace. Now you can’t make the world better all at once, but you can slowly become a new you.
