These are a few little reminders to myself, on a daily basis. This is how I want to live. Maybe they’ll speak to you, too:
– It’s okay to cry every single day.
– It’s okay to let yourself go and be totally and completely immersed in the moment at hand. It’s actually best to live life this way.
– Be nice to everyone. You never know what battle someone is fighting. Be kind. Show mercy. Smile. A lot.
– Hold hands. Holding hands is nice.
– Don’t nag. Who cares if the shoes are left in the entry. Who cares if the dishes haven’t been put away yet. Who cares in the big scheme of things? It will get done. Eventually. For now, let it be.
– Write thank you notes.
– Pray. Give thanks in everything and every situation.
– Don’t be flaky. Make lunch plans. Dinner plans. Happy hour plans. Spend real time with people.
– Say “I love you” often. It’s the most important thing in life.
What are some of your little reminders?
I totally agree with your reminders. Say “I love you often” has been one of mine since I was very young. I think it’s very important. I love your tights, too! I love colored tights. :)
It’s the most important thing in life, that’s for sure! Glad you liked these :)
I love this! I totally agree with being nice to everyone and saying “I love you often.” My little reminders are somewhat similar to yours. Don’t sweat the small stuff –like you said, in the grand scheme of things, is it going to make that big of a difference? Laugh –all the time. Take time out to ask people how they’re doing or how their day was. Most of all, count your blessings at the end of the day. It’s better to concentrate on all the good things than harp on the bad.
LOVE that- don’t sweat the small stuff! My mom said that often! So true. And count your blessings. Yes yes yes.
Girl, you are ROCKING pregnancy. So adorable!
Aww you are the sweetest!!! Thanks girl :)
i like this little reminders..i should do this kind of post too!!
You should! It was fun and kind of therapeutic! :) Always good to think about what really matters.
Love this, Katie! I would have to say the love verse from 1 Corinthians 13 is always my favorite reminder. My husband always reminds me with this one. When I get amazed by how he handles a situation he shares this verse with me. “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Thank you for the reminders and have a wonderful Thursday :)
We had that verse read at our wedding- it’s the absolute BEST. <3
It’s like I wrote this list myself. Love your heart!
Aww I love YOUR heart too, sweet girl!
I agree with all these reminders too! You have such a great outlook on life. I hope to meet you someday! When I have a positive outlook on the day, I go to bed feeling so much more gratitude and SO much more in love with my husband!
Aw thank you so much, Ann!! You are so sweet for saying that! :) Sometimes it’s hard, but it always feels best to be positive in all circumstances.
love these little reminders. and your outfit – super cute as always!
Aw thanks friend!! :)
I love absolutely all of these. They’re all so true.
Aw I’m so glad you like them! :) I was feeling the need to remind myself of these things, to not lose sight of the bigger picture!
Yes yes yes!! Especially my favorites: be kind to people, spend real time with people (put your phones away at gatherings and dinner!), and pray! Adorable pic too, the colored tights are sweet!
Aw thanks Amber!! The phone thing has gotten so bad, I’ve noticed. It’s so important to disconnect and focus on the moment you’re in with the people you are with!
First of all, your picture at the beginning is precious. It almost made me tear up. No idea why. Second of all, I LOVE your list. Very real. Very true. Especially the nagging one. Because really, what does any of that stuff matter in the run matter anyways? It reminds me of that quote “Will this matter a year from now?”. I think I might do my own post like this. If I do, I’ll link back to you! <3
Awww you are so sweet, Maria. That’s a good quote, and one I remind myself of a LOT! I’d love to see your post if you do one similar!! :)
That dress and those tights are just adorable!! And I love your little list of reminders!
Aw thanks Rachel!! :) Glad you liked it!

Aw I love these! I think you covered them all :)
Aw well that’s good! :) Glad you like them- it’s nice to remind ourselves often of these things!
Yes, to all of these! I try to smile at strangers because everyone is going through some type of battle, they just might need that smile!
I LOVE that! You never know when your simple smile can make someone’s day a little brighter :)
Great reminders, Katie. And super cute outfit!
Aww thanks lady :)
Great list. My hubby & I never hold hands anymore, but we’re never alone either. Sometimes it is hard to remember the little things.
I have to remind myself not to be flaky all the time! Being a parent of a toddler means I’d rather just stay at home sometimes then get to those lunch plans with the terrible twos :( You have the cutest pregnant style I’ve ever seen!
