BEING COURTEOUS

In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy, but in passing it over, he is superior.  Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.  If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world.  ~~ Francis Bacon ~

Being courteous to others is not only respectful to others, but it directly reflects on you as a person.  Being courteous means putting yourself in the other person’s shoes instead of thinking of yourself first.  It means doing something without being asked and this is not a one time event.  We all think we are courteous to some extent, but it takes practice.  Bad habits don’t get better unless you are aware of them.  Let us start this new day by making an effort to treat each other how we would like to be treated, and let’s do it with a smile.  We can do our part to make the world a better place.
