Remember to Remember

Hi ShuGar readers! I hope you are all enjoying your week. Almost TGIF!

Someone told me this phrase this week and it kind of stuck.

Remember to Remember

Life if filled to the brim with things to do, people to see, food to cook, rooms to clean and places to go.  However, what if we just take a daily mini-break and remember to remember what life is all about.

  • Remember to remember the beauty of every sunrise and sunset. One sunset is never the same from the last. Look up and soak it in.
  • Remember to remember to leave your work at work. There’s always tomorrow to tackle the pile of stuff to do.
  • Remember to remember not everyone is happy. This is why people are sometimes unkind. However, no one can take away your happiness, but you.
  • Remember to remember the taste of your favorite meal. Savor each and every bite. Indulge in each mouthful.
  • Remember to remember the gift of love. Do not take it for granted. How do you know it will be there tomorrow? Cherish it.
  • Remember to remember to spend quality time with your partner. I know there are a million errands to run and bills to pay, but stop for a bit. Go to dinner. Watch a movie. Relationships need to be cared for.
  • Remember to remember it’s not healthy being envious of someone on the internet. Before we only looked at our neighbors when thinking the grass is greener.  Now, thanks to social media, we see the grass of  everyone around the world.  You are merely seeing their lives in one-dimension.  Your life is sweet and cannot be fully captured with an instagram filter.
  • Remember to follow your heart, no matter how arduous the path may be.  Your passion will give you beautiful satisfaction throughout the entire process, if you remember.
  • Remember to remember blogging is about sharing your heart, not about giveaways, subscribers, stats or other distractions. Just write your little heart out.

    I read this soon after you posted it, but always forgot to comment. But I kept remembering the beauty of it, so here I am again! So inspiring! Loved each and every one of those lines, but that last felt so confirming! Thanks for sharing lady!

    • Thanks, friend! I thought of you for the last one. We gotta keep supporting ourselves and remember to not be cruel to ourselves. It’s amazing how unkind we can be to our souls. We have to stop and smile. We are blessed in many ways. I sure am by having someone like you as my blog friend!

        It did speak to my heart like it was written for me 🙂 And we’re indeed blessed in many ways, sometimes we just don’t see it even when it’s in front of us. Luckily you meet great people who help you guide your way a little, just like you. Happy we’re blog friends too! You have a beautiful soul, mama!

        • Thanks, sweet friend. Meeting people like you is one of the greatest rewards I have received from blogging. I always thought I would blog and no one would see it. It’s so amazing to connect to such a wonderful woman like you. You are inspiring! I am lucky to have you as my blogger friend. Hugs!
