    Manners

    I strive everyday to treat everyone I meet with respect and dignity. It is also called manners. Is it that hard to be decent to everyone you meet?

    Change It Up

    The other day I heard a little change to this saying and, at the time, I thought I really liked it.The saying became, "Treat Others as THEY WANT to be treated."  Yeah!  I said.  It's not about me, it's about the next person.But hold on, that's all well and good.  I can treat...

    Simple

    Golden Rule

    Is there really any other way to be? Why would you even feel justified in treating someone as though they were beneath you? And if you are putting others on a pedestal and groveling at their feet, you are disrespecting yourself, and that isn't good, either.

    Kind & With Respect

    That is not difficult to do...even if it does not come naturally for you like it does for me and others you can still learn by watching and following the examples of others.
