Nice People


While waiting to see the dentist last week, I read this Wall Street Journal op ed piece.

I'm not crazy about my dentist.  She's a good dentist, but she's not what I would call warm.  There have been appointments when I have allowed her severe attitude to bring out my lesser angels.

I had a fabulous walk there today!

This appointment was different.  After reading this piece, I decided to be nice.  Nicer than I usually am.

Of course the mood of the appointment was better.  Of course I left feeling good.  Of course the rest of the day was lighter.

Here's hoping the same happens for you.

Glorious.
