The other day I was cleaning out my drawers and I came across this sheet of paper of 20 little things to remember and I had to share. Sometimes we need little reminders each day.

  1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully

  2. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

  3. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all have you have or sleep all you want.

  4. When you say, “I love you,” mean it

  5. Be engaged at least six months before you get married

  6. Believe in love at first sight

  7. Never laugh at anyone’ dream. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

  8. Love! Deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s only way to live life completely

  9. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

  10. Don’t judge people by their relatives

  11. Talk slowly but think quickly

  12. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

  13. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk

  14. Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze

  15. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

  16. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

  17. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship

  18. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

  19. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

  20. Spend sometime alone.
