Take time to smell the roses


Be kind to yourself


Hold your head up


Be spontaneous


Try everything once


Colour outside the lines


Embrace change


Believe in yourself


Do what you love


Eat dessert first


Be nice to strangers


Send thank you cards

Enjoy the silence


Be the change you wish to see in the world


Stop and smell the roses


Play in the rain


Do random acts of kindness


Make time for family


Nurture your friendships


Forgive, even when it's hard


Don't count the lines, count the laughs

Look at the scenery


Don't take yourself too seriously


Send handwritten letters


Count your blessings

Gorgeous. Yes agree with all of those (except perhaps colouring outside the lines which I try to teach my children not to do)!! ;-))

Lovely advice. I'll try to apply as many as I can. Thanks and have a nice day. Ciao. A.

see you there! said...

Good reminders. I'm in the mood for handwritten letters (or postcards) at the moment. Want one? Leave me your mailing address at dbande7th@hotmail.com.
You never know when the postman will show up at your door :-)

Emily/Maternal Tales - ha! Occasionally though it's good to ignore the rules and do it your own way.

Antonella, I thought these were good reminders, although I often don't follow my own advice :-(

Darla, Yes I'd love one! I'll be sending you my address, thank you.

Savvy Mode - welcome and thanks for the comment. The photo is super cute isn't it?

Rosie, thank you!

Mrs Jane Doe, to be honest I don't go out very often, but I just felt I needed to follow through onthe meditation from the retreat. I think I'll get so much out of it, and it'll benefit my daughters as well as me.

I haven't heard of the book you mention, I'll have a look for it.

La belette, awww...thanks :-)

These are terrific phrases (may even print them out, if you don't mind). Can I send you a postcard too? I have so many and I'd like to share the them! Thanks to Darla for the reminder!
