Remembering that gratitude can go along way is a good reminder!

For me, it’s a opportunity to reflect on the many blessings in my life, a time to reflect on the many things that I have had the opportunity to enjoy…

Taking time, even just a minute, each day to think about my blessings serves as a reminder to so many things. We use reminders everyday… that tiny voice in our head reminding us to make a phone call, a sticky note on the fridge to remember the milk. Reminders, are a great way to getting things done and be a little more organized.

As I get older, I’m ‘reminded’ that I struggle more with remembering things. My memory isn’t as good as it used to be; and if I don’t offer myself help or use a support system, then I just won’t remember.  Although I’m an organizer I still have to work just as hard as you do to keep it all together…

Here are 5 things you can try to help you with reminders:

  1. Pen and paper (personally I like a post-it’s) is a traditional method.
  2. Calendar alarms/reminders in you mobile device or tablet (hint: scheduling things like this isn’t bad).
  3. Apps I find helpful: Wunderlist, Any.do, Asana and Google
  4. Family calendars (Cozi online or check out etsy ideas) can be a central system within your home to organize your thoughts and/or tasks
  5. Voice mail or text messages are a wonderful way to be reminded of specific things

If we don’t remember, we don’t know what we forgot. 

I find that when I remember to do something (and it actually gets done), I have a sense of accomplishment and gratitude. Today, I am grateful for remembering to do my blog post… they go together like peas and carrots.
