is surprisingly simple, very easy and absolutely free:
Being nice isn't so hard.
It even takes less effort than being grumpy or arrogant. One just has to think of it, act accordingly until it becomes a habbit and then, life changes for the better.
People are often afraid to be friendly. They fear to give a weak impression or to be found silly or naive. Yet being friendly shows a mastery of several Modern Virtues
and there lies the key to happiness and succes.
I truly believe so.
it is a handicap!
Arrogant behaviour, a deeply human vice, is too often misapplied as if it were "an expression of superiority".
It strikes us all: cocky behaviour of the adolescent boys, aggressive driving, vitriolic comments by menopausal woman, cyberbullying so typical for high school girls.
All so sad, so silly and so counterproductive.
And it doesn't work. Nobody likes it.
So, what can a person possibly do if he/she wants to become better, happier and more successful?
I think I have an answer.
Come and see the next post. I'll tell you about it.
Health freaks online call them Tiger Nuts, Flemish farmers and gardeners curse them as (the meadow ruining) Knolcyperus.
But every Valencian grandmother on the other hand knows them as Chufas, the basic ingredient for Horchata, a traditional refreshing summer drink.
I love them as a snack - soaked in water they are like crunchy sweet almonds -
or as flour for my home made bio-cookies.
Chufas in spanish 'fruto seco' shops: 6 Eur/kilo.
Don't tell me that Super Food is expensive.
