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
Having a drink that I used to drink as a kid
Seeing a guy dressed as a vampire waiting at a bus stop
The smell of pine needles
Partying with friends
Making someone smile when they are in a bad mood
Achieving my blog a day for 90 days goal
Eating left over Halloween treats
A new note book full of clean empty pages
Getting great feedback from a client
Being at a fancy dress party where everyone has made an effort to have really great outfits
A dog running up to greet you, wagging it’s tail
The sparkle of fireworks in a dark sky
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?
