Judge a man not by how he treats his equals but by how he treats his inferiors.

Give a generous tip | They’re not paid enough anyway

Smile at a stranger | You don’t know what someone else might be going through

Hold a door open for someone | Because manners matter

Tell a friend how much you appreciate them | Sometimes they just need to hear it

Learn from your elders and teach those younger than you | R E S P E C T

Say “I love you” | Whenever you think & feel it

Give a handmade gift | It’s the thought that counts anyway

Invite someone over for dinner | & make an effort

Say “Thank You” in a different language | Because there’s a story to behind it

Donate your time | Its the most valuable asset you have

…because you have the power to make someone’s day.

    Inviting someone over for dinner is the best one! It can be so hard to make friends or even stay connected to old friends in this crazy world we live in. Sometimes all you need to start a new friendship or rekindle an old one is to plan a catch-up dinner.

    Beautiful reminder! One of my biggest goals as I move forward in life is to give more and expect less (or expect nothing, really), to give simply for the sake of giving 🙂

    Great tips, especially about handmade gifts! I love them! Don’t think there’s anything more thoughtful behind handmade gifts!

    December 4, 2014 at 1:50 am

    Simple things that most people forget very useful tips.

    December 3, 2014 at 11:31 pm

    Beautiful list! I would add:

    -take time to strike up conversations with people you meet.


    -compliment strangers when they are wearing something you genuinely adore.

    I am really going to test these ideas out for the next few weeks.

    It’s true the tiniest thing can make somebody’s day, thanks for reminding us to be better.

    A simple smile or “hello” from a stranger absolutely makes my day, and I tend to remember most of them! I try to do it often, as well – it’s DEFINITELY a way to make someone feel good!

    Really loved this post. It definitely reminds you that the best things in life start inside ourselves, we can’t expect the world to be a happier place if we don’t make it this way.

    This is a lovely post, it’s so true that we can easily make people’s day just by a simple gesture 🙂 When I can I always make sure to tip more than usual!

    December 3, 2014 at 10:16 am

    I was thinking about the same thing today!! How one little act of consideration or kindness can completely turn around someones day. Its so little effort with such a great result.
    Really cute post 🙂
