Ok, are you guys ready? I don't just mean a new year, but a year that will end on a guaranteed positive note. I know, you think it's impossible to say that but I assure you that it is. I have had some pretty bad years in the past and the ones where I kept a gratitude jar made it more bearable. It allowed me to see the great things that were also taking place in that same year and focus on that. So, if keeping it simple will be the difference between you doing it versus not doing it, let's keep this very simple. All you need is a jar or vase, heck...a Tupperware container or zip lock/shopping bag will do if that is what you have. We are working with what we have here, so dress it up as much or as little as you want, what goes inside is where the magic happens. In the past, I would write down what has brought me joy, what was an accomplishment that I was proud of, or something that I was grateful for at that moment. Those are the times I would put something in my container, but this year I am challenging myself. This year I am going to write one thing each day that I am grateful for and/or enjoyed that day. Can you imagine having that many to read at the end of the year? Oh yeah, that's how it works, you wait until New Year's eve and you read all of the great things you experienced over the year. I am a witness that when you do this, you will be amazed at the things you forgot happened because for some reason negative experiences stick with us easier than positive ones. This is a way to tip the scales back in a positive direction and end the year on a good note. I didn't have anywhere near a gratitude per day, but I can tell you that what I did have made a huge difference as to how I ended that year. Let me know in the comments section if you have done or will do this. Until next time beautiful people. Have a Happy New Year! FLL
