” Life is short, but there is always time for courtesy”
~ Ralph Emerson
Common courtesy, most of us have it but choose not to practice it!
Being in quite a trying time and just trying to keep my spirit and character goals afloat, I am truelly alarmed at the lack of regard and courtesy our world has.
I can’t understand why though, because It really is the little things that count. The “thank you’s”, the affectionate smiles, the appreciation and simple acknowledgements, the responding to text messages or returning of calls, the communication, the good mornings or have a good days.
I always say that even if you may not prefer somethings that people do for you, if it’s done with a good heart, and pure intention… show appreciation; a little thank you and a warm smile is really all that’s needed. Being rude, arrogant and showing now regard for anybody’s efforts is childish and lacks character if you ask me.
With a world that’s moving towards an “I don’t give an eff about you or anything” attitude, common courtesy is on the brink of extinction sigh. The thought of it hurts my heart really.
Can we try to savour this please, by just making a conscious effort to show courtesy when it’s due and even when we don’t feel like it. It’s like a muscle that needs exercise. Please?
A humble plea and I’m putting it out there that I am making a bigger effort to be courteous.
