The Power of Courtesy

Wednesday, Sep 5, 2018

If one kind word can change someone's day, imagine what a whole month of kind words could do.

September is National Courtesy Month. A chance to show the world just how far a little kindness can spread. 

Here are a few politeness reminders to help you get started on your journey. What would happen if you focused on just one every single day? 


1.  Always say "please" and "thank you."

Please & Thank You Are Still Magic Words.


2.  Greet others with a smile, saying "hello" and "goodbye."

A smile is the universal welcome.


3.  Be a good listener. Don't interrupt.

The more quiet you become, the more you are here.


4.  Wait your turn. Even when the line is long.

Be patient. Everything is coming together.


5.  Be generous in your giving. 

The heart that gives, gathers.


6.  Show gratitude. Especially for the small things.

Gratitude, turns what we have into enough


7.  Compliment others.

A compliment is verbal sunshine


8.  Hold a door for the person behind you.

Not all heroes wear capes, some hold the door.


9.  Always share.

Always share your light with those who are in the dark


10. Be sincere!

You don't have to be fearless. Just be sincere.
