I have never been one for new year’s resolutions – nobody ever really keeps them now do they 🙂 I do like to set goals and reflect on what I have accomplished at the end of the year. This year I have come across two GREAT ideas which I plan to start this week (1) The New Year Jar and (2) One Word 365. Now, both these ideas deserve two separate post so this one will cover the New Year Jar.
I happened to see this photo on my Facebook news feed yesterday and I love it.
“start the new year with an empty jar. Then every time something good happens, make a note of it and place the note in the jar. On New Year’s Eve, empty the jar and reminisce on all the blessings you had in the year.” – Author Unknown
What a great idea!! Most of us (including me) spend the last week of the year reflecting on the things we didn’t accomplish or all the negative that has happened over the year that we forget to reflect, and be thankful, for all the wonderful blessings we did have!
So tomorrow I am off to purchase a nice glass jar to place on my bathroom counter to begin adding my BLESSINGS. Who is going to join me?
