Here is an idea to do in 2013, make a "Good Things" Jar and when you experience or do something good, write it on a small piece of paper and it in the jar. Then on New Year's Eve, read about all the good things you experienced throughout the year.
I read about this idea on the internet and thought, "What a great way to focus on the positive." Too often the negativity gets all the attention in our minds. For instance, I had a great day yesterday until my daughters got into their usual bickering. And, of course, one of them had to drag me into it. Now, all I can think about is the negativity that happened rather than what a relaxing day I had up to that point.
Amazing how one negative action can wipe out so much positive. So, I think that a Good Things Jar would be a great way to stay focused on the positive and then to remind us that maybe things aren't as bad as we think they are. I am looking forward to seeing that jar fill up with memories of wonderful things.
