There’s room for everyone on the Nice List
Buddy the Elf
December 16th - Nice or Naughty?
It’s not true that nice guys finish last. Nice guys are winners before the game even starts.
Every year Santa makes a list. He divides it into two columns, nice and naughty, and he checks it twice. Whether you fall into the first category or the second is tricky to determine,especially if half your attempts at being a good person end up failing. But Santa knows.
It is said that doing extra chores, or something special to help out around house between now and Christmas will get you off the naughty list and onto the Nice list.
It’s always good to be nice. No, it’s not easy all the time, but it will improve your own mood as well as others if remember that instead of tearing someone down to be on your level you can lift the both of you up with kind words and gestures. . While being kind sometimes feels as though you are allowing meanmess to go unnoticed or unchecked, it does not mean you are allowing others to walk all over you. You are simply rising above in a different way.
Our words and actions can last forever on others. Sometimes it doesn’t feel permanent to you, but to the other person it could be everlasting.
If it will make others happy, it will make you happy. You’ll always be glad you didn’t say something you can’t take back and you be glad you offered kindness instead of unnecessary meanness.
Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meed them on your way down.
