I saw a post on Facebook from
Elizabeth Gilbert, aka Eat Pray Love and all around inspiring lady,
where she was discussing
The premise is no matter how badly your day has gone,
there is always at least ONE thing, ONE instance where you were happy.
She writes that thing down at the end of each day,
and drops it in to her "Happiness Jar".
I loved the idea.
I used to write three things I was grateful for at the end of each day.
No matter how trivial, there is always something to be happy about,
something to be grateful about!
So I'm starting my own jar!
I'm using this for now...
but will keep an eye out for another fabulously oversized glass canister!
I think it will be a great exercise in keeping that Attitude of Gratitude!
No matter what....there is at least one bright spot in everyone's day!
This will be a great way to center myself.
On the off day, just reach in to the jar and read a slip of paper and remind myself
that even the simple things are things to be happy about,
to be grateful for!
One slip in my jar simply says "There was knitting"
and that's okay!
Then there are other monumental events that left me
I love the idea of having years and years of happy moments,
moments of gratitude,
piling up in a big ol' jar.
I'm looking forward to reaching in,
for years to come!
