It’s been said it’s the little things in life that make us happy. However, the little things in life also need regular maintenance—a lesson I learned the hard way this week.
Did you know that the battery in your car’s key fob only lasts just 1-2 years? Those of us who own a car with push button ignition need to be especially vigilant, otherwise you may find yourself a sitting duck while your ice cream melts in the sun.
As I was hopping on my right foot, bending at the waist, twisting my right arm under my left leg, and pressing the unlock button on the fob, I realized…there has to be a better way. (And no, it’s not doing a partial backwards somersault…I tried that too.) So instead of waiting until I’m playing a game of twister in the middle of a grocery store parking lot to find some miraculous angle to get my key fob to work, I decided to just choose to replace my key fob battery regularly.
So this week, choose to Nest Pretty and, like me, change the battery in your key fob. Then go into your calendar and make it a recurring appointment. I have decided to change mine on the anniversary of the day Judah and I bought the car. It’s true that it’s the little things that make us happy, but by regularly maintaining the little things in our life they can keep making us happy for years to come.
