Dare To Be Nice: It's a Challenge

I'm on a journey to become a better human being...a more lovely woman, and I invite you to join me. Sometimes when we are frustrated and when life seems to throw us for a loop, it's easy to become negative and to act ugly. I don't like acting ugly, and I want to act nice. We females can be so catty, and we are moody. Sometimes it's truly a challenge to be nice. I'm guilty of acting ugly and I don't want to leave this world with an ugly legacy.

So, every so often....possibly every week if we're super lucky....I'll be posting a new Dare To Be Nice challenge for myself and I'd love for you to take the challenge with me. I'd LOVE to hear your personal triumphs with the Dare To Be Nice challenges as well, so please share your personal Dare To Be Nice story in the comments section each time I post a challenge.

There is power in numbers, so please take this challenge with me so we can be stronger together. I am daring myself and daring you to be nice with me. It's my "Dare To Be Nice" challenge. Pretty easy, right?

Today this desire to start this Dare To Be Nice challenge grew inside me more than ever before.

I had to pick something up from a business in Columbia County and witnessed some really bad public behavior. A lady was acting like a jerk towards the store owner because of something incredibly ridiculous and so minor.

The big problem that she threw a fit about was that the wrappers weren't fancy enough on the items she was buying, and the store owner didn't have anything to upgrade her to. She was ugly to the owner and she threw a tantrum that would rival my two year old daughter's behavior when she hasn't had a nap.

There are children somewhere in the world who did not get to eat one morsel of food today and who are literally starving to death and this lady today was a jerk because of un-fancy wrappers. We are spoiled beyond belief, but we don't have the right to act like spoiled brats when things don't perfectly go our way.

I wanted to tell her to just be nice.

I wanted to just let her know we should thank God that we have the luxury of living in a nation where her biggest concern of the entire day was a stupid wrapper. Compared to other countries, we live like kings, queens and princesses. Let's have a little bit of flexibility....let's have compassion....let's be nice.

So challenge you...and I am doing this too....in the next 72 hours let's Dare To Be Nice when something minor isn't going our way. Let's be aware of our negative emotions. When we feel the urge to act on our frustrations (i.e. to act ugly), let's instead just let it go and be nice to others around us. I'd love to hear about what it is that YOU do to be nice in the next 72 hours when you really feel like being ugly instead.
