My Happy Jar

WP_20150102_003[1]

This is the latest post about my Happy Jar.

It’s a way to look back on things and remember all the little things that make us happy.

The idea came from a nice story I once heard about a woman who had a jar. Every time she thought of something that made her happy, she would jot it down on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Whenever she felt down, or fed up, she would go to her jar and find all the things that made her happy. Some things were big things, events that happened that she could look back on and smile, but most were little things that she could cherish and maybe even recreate to make her feel better.

So here are a few things from my Happy Jar this month

Making Tea in a Teapot with loose leaf tea

An unexpectedly warm morning in Autumn

The fragrance of a new candle

Reconnecting with an old friend

A cuddle when you’re feeling sad

Having a post reblogged

Chocolate cake (warmed up with a little bit of ice cream)

The smell of a book

The sound of silence

Helping out a neighbour

I know none of these things are amazing, there is nothing earth shattering about them, but all of them have made me smile and brought a least a little joy to my soul.

What will you put in your happy jar this month?
