19 things to remember.

I was flipping through my journal and found this list of “things to remember” that I wrote during a moment of clarity. It brought a smile to my face and I thought you might appreciate it too.

- Remember that this moment is precious.
- Remember to not take yourself too seriously.
- Remember to say yes to adventure.
- Remember to value the things you have.
- Remember to value the relationships you have.
- Remember that life is challenging.
- Remember that challenges can be good.
- Remember that no one has it figured out.
- Remember that we are all in this together.
- Remember that you need to take responsibility for your actions.
- Remember that things are constantly changing with or without you.
- Remember that you can be a force that changes things.
- Remember to get out of your comfort zone.
- Remember to lead with love.
- Remember that even our shadows need love.
- Remember that the world reflects back the vibes you put out.

And always remember that you are enough.
