'It's nice to be important, but it's not important to be nice.'
I know, awful isn't it. I heard that on the radio years ago; a DJ thinking he was clever. And nice. And important. None of which he was. In my personal life I've been a mug, a doormat, a pushover, you name it, I've been it. But I've learned, over the years, that letting people in my professional life walk all over me does me no favours in the long run. I will be nice when I need to be, which is most of the time. And when I need to be professional, I will be nice then, too. But when someone comes along and takes the piss, the above motto applies.
And whilst I'm being nice, the support I have received over the last five days whilst promoting Nightingale Woods on Social Media has been phenomenal. I thank all those who have retweeted, shared, liked, downloaded, promoted and generally been amazing, from the heart of my bottom.
And the bottom of my heart.
