Being nice can sound so dull at first glance because the word ‘nice’ is so mediocre. Being a nice person can lead to people feeling amazing though. My friend Corban wrote on his blog today about how he had bought a coffee for a busker outside a coffee shop in the freezing cold. It was a nice thing to do but the effect it will have had on the person he did it for would have been far more than the word ‘nice’ could live up to. Not only that but I’m sure anyone he told about it (the busker that is) and anyone who witnessed it can’t have helped but to have had their heart filled with happiness too.
Corban also made my day when he sent me a short voice clip this morning. If you read his blog you will see that he talks about the stammer he has and how that puts him off voicing in SL or on Skype. For him to send me that voice clip was a very special moment and one that made me very happy to hear his voice knowing the anxiety sending it will have raised in him…such a small thing for most people but that was a huge step for him and it welled a few tears in my eyes.
I’d read on facebook a couple of weeks ago about another friend who had treated a member of staff at a nail bar she visited to a random act of kindness that would have had massive repercussions for the person on the receiving end. There are lots of examples I can think of within my friends group of little, and sometimes larger, acts of kindness that we do for each other every day. Every time we support or show love for each other it’s a kindness. It’s what makes us nice people and maybe, after all, being described as nice isn’t such a bad thing after all.
