"Niceness sometimes connotes wimpiness, but that interpretation usually comes from the fact that many of us have felt that it was expected of us to make nice even when we didn’t feel nice. When we realize that niceness is a natural outgrowth of deep kindness and caring, we can consciously choose to develop our niceness quotient. We can set our intention to truly being nice, rather than putting on a phony nice front. Often, the simple desire to grow our soul through niceness helps us focus on coming from our hearts where true niceness flourishes. . . . .

Nice not only wears well, but, generally, it also fares well, for kindness is never out-of-date nor out-of-style and is welcome in all circles. Everyone enjoys being uplifted in the safe haven of nice attitudes and actions. Being truly nice makes us a heart-lifter."
