It's nice to be important

February 09, 2012

but it's more important to be nice. cheeesy. true.

I love people who.. make me feel good. and motivate me to be a better person. I was talking to someone the other day about how I wish I were more thoughtful. It sounds ridiculous, but that doesn't always come naturally to me.

Well this conversation about changing things in ourselves motivated me. First I went home and finished my chores for the week. Carly and Meg made an extreeemely detailed job chart for our apartment, and I feel terrible because we only kept up with it for the first few weeks. Every now and then, one of us will think of it and find the time to do our chores. I decided this was the week I would be the one to remember. Not for me, but for my roommates who worked so hard to make the chart and deserve a clean apartment.

Then the next afternoon poor little Marge was starving so I gave her the rest of my mac and cheese.

So those were little things, but I'll get better.

Try a little harder to be a little better.

One of our favorite lines from the TV show M*A*S*H is "it's nice, to be nice, to the nice".
