My daughter gave me a great idea for 2013...a HAPPY jar!
You get an empty jar and pieces of paper, and you write down happy thoughts and memories throughout the year, and put the memories in the jar.
I started on New Year's Eve and have been adding to my jar every day (or when I remember). Some days I really have to search for something happy to take note of, and some days it's much easier.
It has become way too routine and familiar to list all the worries and obsess over the to-do list, but I want to change that.
I love this quote from Voltaire (art work by chARiTy elise designs) and have chosen this as my goal for 2013 - that in spite of everything and anything, I will focus on being happy because it is good for my health.
Now I want to decorate my happy jar...I'm thinking fabric and beads and paint and sparkles...
