No cost…

The sun sets on another day…

There are many perfect days. This was one of them. I am reminded of the movie Miss Congeniality where a contest was asked for the perfect date and she said April 25th because “…it’s not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.” I smiled as August 12th becomes another perfect day, not too hot or cold and not even a light jacket was really necessary.

I was looking at the new cost of living for a moment. It seems everything is a subscription now. Pay per month for this or for that and there seems to be no end to the number of monetized mashups that slowly take away from you without giving you anything real. For 9.99 per month you can have more, and at the end of the day feel good for a moment.

Guess what? There are things that cost nothing and are more fun. A walk on the beach is free (well, for the most past) and you will gain magnificent memories or winsome waves washing along the shore. Holding hands or spending time with someone special is free (Unless you go to the movies, take out a load then) and the memories and feelings you get are priceless. There are lots of examples and I will focus on just one for a second.

Being nice to people is free (No special statement here). All you have to do is be nice. Not spend a lot of time, effort, or any money, but instead reach deep into your soul and believe that you can be nice. It’s not hard, it costs nothing and you can spread a little kindness in the world. Take a deep breath, feel it slide around you, and be a person that gives something free: kindness.

So as the sun sets on another day it is another amazing moment in a series of days that are all about you. After all, you are the most important person to you. Find a path that works well and takes others on that journey with you to open you heart, your mind, and your kindness so that everyone can see the world through your amazing eyes. Be the person that makes the world a better place, one person at a time, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and nicely nicely…
