How to be a nice human

Fat Mum Slim /


I think it might be the full moon, or mercury retrograde, or that people are stressed, or that the price of chocolate is going up {or the size of the blocks is going down} or all of those things rolled into one… but I think some people are forgetting how to be nice human beings.

So I’m here to help. I’m flying in with my pink cape, and I’m saving the day.

Here’s how to be nice:

♥ Say please and thank you.
♥ Don’t sweat the small stuff {and if you’re not sure if it’s small stuff that you’re sweating, let me tell you it’s the small stuff, stop sweating already}.
♥ Use your blinkers when driving {and wave a thank you if someone lets you in}.
♥ Pick your battles.
♥ Know that you’re better than no one. We’re all equal. {Yep, you’re not better than your neighbour, or that lady in the street. You’re not}.
♥ Think before you speak. Are you words going to improve the silence? Is it kind? Is it productive? Is it even necessary?
♥ Nobody likes an a$$hole. I hate to say it, but nobody does, so don’t be one.
♥ Give more than you take.
♥ Ask yourself how you can improve the world, even just a little, and go and do that. Be THAT person who makes the world better, not worse. Start with doing one thing each day.
Watch this video. And as Jim Carrey says, “The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is. Cos everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you, is all that was in your heart”. Deep but true.
♥ Leave the world a better place for you having been here. It doesn’t mean that you have to climb mountains to make a point, or save the world. Just do small things. Don’t throw your stuff where it shouldn’t go. Smile at a stranger. Really listen to that person telling their story. Make someone a cake. Pick some flowers for someone. Do something good.
♥ And if someone isn’t a nice human to you, don’t let it get inside you and turn your heart black. Dust yourself off, get back up again, give them the invisible finger and go on and be the nice human that they’re not. And if you can’t ‘shake it off’ that easy, put on your favourite song and dance. It always helps.
