Things To Remember, Things to Forget

Are you forgetful? Absent minded? I like to think of it another way. We folks who forget things sometimes aren't really absent minded --we're full minded! Our minds are so full of wonderful thoughts, ideas, plans and inspirations, that some of them naturally leak out!

I've found that if I write down my plans, I'm much more likely to accomplish them. A "To Do" list really works -- especially if you remember to look at it!

Here are a couple of lists for you -- Things to Forget and Things to Remember.

Things to Forget
The bad stuff someone said about you.
The time you were overlooked or excluded.
The wonderful things you did for someone (which should have been noticed.)
How great (perfect) you are.
That you were right (I told you so!).
How bad "they" treated you.
Why you deserve to be first (or other special treatment).
Your grudges.
Your pet peeves.
The time someone disappointed you.
Your self-centered notions.

Things to Remember
To say "Thank You".
To express your love and affection.
The gestures of kindness others have shown to you.
That any success you achieve is due, at least in part, to others.
That God answers prayer.
That you are not God, so you don't have to control everything.
To do your homework.
To lend a helping hand.
That persistence pays off.
What brings true happiness (things money can't buy).
To seize the day and make the most of the moments.
