"Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. On December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year."
This is what I’m doing this year. I have a pretty big canister that I’m going to use, and I’m hoping to record at least one happy memory every week. I’d love to try every day, but it’s an unreasonable thing for me to promise myself. Once a week is plenty, but more would be perfect. I already know some great things I can add to the jar that are happening after the 1st, and I’m really looking forward to this upcoming year! I’ll try to capture as many memories as I can on here as well, but getting them written down and into the jar is first priority.
In the next coming days I will also try to transform this little blog into a positive web space, sharing happy thoughts and vibes along with good advice to becoming a more caring and positive person, etc. 2013 is a year of change for me, and I’m going to work hard to make it a calm, practical, upbeat, honest, and uplifting year. I’ll list my resolutions before the end of the year - I’m still working on them. I want three things that I’m going to commit to and work on in order to better myself. And if I’m feeling really up to it, I’ll come up with something new for each month of the year to work on. It’s going to be a journey! And I’d love to have you join me. :o)
