Humble & Kind

I have always been a big fan of music and the way that the right song can seem to meet you at just the right moment and the words seem as if they were written with you in mind.

The songs that lift your heart, the ones that make you cry, the ones that take you back to a specific time or a certain person, and the ones that say what you only wish you could have put into words.

Now that I have my girls, there have been a few songs that seem to hit my heart right away. I got teary-eyed I don’t know how many times listening to Kip Moore’s Hey Pretty Girl while I was pregnant with Peanut (thanks in large part to hormones, but it does still move my heart when I hear it now).

There are songs that instantly make me think of my mom, and I then tend to wonder if my girls will have songs that will instantly make them think of me, and if so, what those songs will be.

Lately, I have really loved songs that speak to the many things that I want to teach them. One of those songs is Tim McGraw’s Humble & Kind.


Here are a few of my favorite lyrics from the song as they truly are things that I hope to teach my girls:

Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin
Don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

So go out there this week and work hard for those dreams you’re dreamin’, and let’s all stay humble & kind.
