Day 64. Small Courtesies

 Photo by Evan Kirby /

Sometimes in our rush to get things done, the small courtesies can get lost.

As we go about our day, it's good to remember that these niceties help cushion our lives, making the journey softer and pleasanter for ourselves and for others. Courtesies like acknowledging e-mails, saying thank you for gifts and kind words, arriving on time for meetings, putting our grocery cart back in the right place, smiling at people instead of staring past them.

As Nancy Lindemeyer, former editor of Victoria, once said, 'Nice matters.' It all adds up to living our lives more beautifully.

 Courteously yours,
