A friend of mine passed on a great concept for this year: a Happy Jar.
The concept is simple: get a jar and every time something great or interesting or fun happens, write it down on a slip of paper and put it in the jar. At the end of the year, open up the jar and review the year. (Or more frequently if you need the boost.)
She gave everyone in our group jars and challenged us to keep it up for a year so that we can all share out best moments at next year's New Year's Eve party.
I think this is a great idea. I'm not much for gratitude journals or the Life is Awesome project (find something awesome every day for a year) but it's easy to forget some of the great moments in life as the daily grind wears on.
I will be giving this a good go and since I'll probably steal some of the moments to share on this blog, it might be a little repetitive come New Year's but I can live with that.
