I read about this on Pinterest a month or so ago, then the other day on Facebook, then yesterday a woman in the office was talking about it.
I decided to do it after reading about it on Pinterest. My jar is ready and I am waiting.
To fill it with my marbles I seem to keep losing? No….
To fill with some sweets I can't seem to get enough of? No….
Now you are probably scratching your head wondering what I am into now. Well I think it is called a memory jar; at least that is what I am calling it. It is where you take an empty jar and fill it through the year with pieces of paper that has "good" things written on it.
But it can't be just any ole good things....
This is how it works~
At the end of a given year we will usually catch ourselves saying, "hope next year is better; this was a rough year; next year can't be any worse than this one was….etc". But we have a hard time remembering the good things from that year and the older I get the worse that becomes so this year I will have a jar, my pen and my paper and when that good thing happens, I will write it down and put it in the jar. At the end of this year, 2013 I will go through those MEMORIES and recount all the good things that happened through the year and hopefully help to push any bad things out of the way!
Here's hoping for a better New Year.
Happy New Year to all.
Thanks for stopping in and please come again,
