Start a Memory Jar for 2013

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I saw this on Facebook the other day and decided to start a Memory Jar today.

I am trying to be more positive and I think this little exercise might help!

“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.”

I took a quart size Mason jar and made a cute label and tucked it inside the jar so that it would peek out.

Here are the instructions:

1. Repurpose an empty glass jar.
2. Add a note every time something good happens.
3. On 12/31/13, empty your jar and read how amazing your life was in 2013. :)

I hope my jar fills up quickly, so I can find a nicer, larger jar! LOL!

Happy New Year to all of you! I wish you good health and much happiness in 2013!

~ Maria

    What a great idea, Maria! I love it...

    And how blessed you are to still have your Mom and how great that she is doing well, and able to give all of you the joy of her letters! That is truly a blessing from the Lord!

    Blessings, my friend, on you on yours! Marge

    I love the idea!! Maybe put some money in with it & that would make it even more nice! Like a dollar for everyone you put in! Maybe put a post it note on the dollar bill! Hoping you fill the jar full for 2013!! Have a great year!! emoticon

    I've seen that too, here on SP. Now that I saw your blog about it also, it kind've re-affirmed in my mind that it's a really cool idea! Thanks for the reminder, Maria!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
