“Please!” (1.17.17)

One hundred trillion years, Patricia Bokowski!
7 continents!
106 billion people! (Not counting Atlantis, Lemuria, and the others.)
96 zillion dreams come true!
And not once, not even close, not even on my most generous, loving, caring days, has anything ever happened in time and space — good or bad, big or small, rich or poor — that wasn’t sparked by someone’s imagination and followed up with their own baby steps. 
Not without you,
  The Universe / “Please!” /

“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

When I was raising my two sons.

I started telling them.

At a very early age.

That good manners.

Will get you a lot further in life.

That being smart.

That’s right!

You know why?

Because most people.

Don’t possess good manners.

And that’s why.

When you run across someone who does.

They stand out!

Do you know who is the #1 hater on gum chewing?


She absolutely hates it!

Actually, one of mine as well.🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

I will tell you right up front.

It’s disgusting and it makes you look bad.

Let me break it down.

You look like a cow when you chew gum, yes, a cow.

It does nothing to enhance your image in any way, shape or form.

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you are chewing gum?

If not, you should, and brace yourself, it’s not pretty 😉

In fact, the other day I was shopping and noticed a mother and daughter together.

From the back, they were dressed very nicely.

And then they turned around.

Both of them chewing gum, ruined their entire look. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I’m sure they had no idea.

I just don’t even get what people get out of chewing gum?

To keep your breath fresh?

That’s why there’s mints.

Toothbrush and toothpaste.


Peppermint leaves.

Certain oils.

And so many more options.

And if you tell me it’s to curb your appetite,

I would say, find another option.☝☝☝

To smoke or not to smoke?

Another BAD habit.


Just don’t do it.


Aside the obvious, CANCER.

There’s you smelling bad.

Your breath, yuck.

Ever be around someone who is a heavy smoker?

I can’t stand it, I have to walk away.

Literally makes me sick to my stomach.

And forget about dating someone who smokes👇👇👇

Did it once.

Never again!!!

And now for the really important stuff!

Say please and thank you 👈👈👈

Get into the habit of saying it all the time.

And to everyone!

It amazes me to this day that so many don’t?

Isn’t that like LIFE #101.

From the time my kids were little I taught them to say please and thank you!

And when they got a bit older.

I explained, having good manners will get you further than being smart☝☝☝

Very true!

It takes nothing to be nice, so be nice!

Thank you next!

Making eye contact.👈👈👈

Ever had a conversation with someone and they were either looking down, past you or up?


Like that!

It is extremely important when it comes to good manners.

It shows respect to whoever you are speaking with.

Everyone wants to feel acknowledged.

So make sure your body language is open, friendly and forthright.👈👈👈

Smile 😉

You KNEW that one was coming!

That is a huge one in the manners department.

I am so turned off by people who don’t smile.

And I get that some people just don’t have a smile in them.

But still.

I’m not saying you need to walk around with a huge grin on your face all the time.

I’m saying when you pass someone by.

You give a little smile (which says, I see you).

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that have the biggest meaning.

And mostly.

Because you never know who needs it 🙂

You know.

One little smile from you to someone else.

Can make someone’s entire day!

That’s my personal philosophy.

I always like to leave people a little happier after I leave.

Quick story. NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

I went to see my doctor yesterday.

So it was the doctor, the nurse and a medical student.

And I told them all a funny story about when I got called for jury duty back in October.

By the time they left, everyone was smiling.

That’s what I’m talking about!


Have you heard?

I’m writing a book!

Titled:  “How One Landscaping Bill Changed Everything!”

Anticipated release date:  Summer 2022!

I cannot wait for you guys to read it!
