At the start of every year, it is common to begin making your list of resolutions for the months to come. Everyone is anxious to start the year off on the right foot, whether that means improving your health, accomplishing a longtime goal, or simply trying something new! The New Year is also a time to reflect on the year that has passed and remember all of the good things that have happened.
However, sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of all that happens on a day to day basis that makes us smile, or inspires us. So, with all there is to be thankful for over the course of a year, we thought it would be a good idea to start a Gratitude Jar – a way to look back on the year and remember all of the best memories we made!
To make your own Gratitude Jar, all you need is a Small Canister (we used Cobalt, but feel free to choose your favorite Fiesta color) slips of paper, and any decorations you want to add. Then start writing! You can jot down accomplishments, funny moments, random acts of kindness, reasons to be thankful, or anything else that will be sure to put a smile on your face. Then on New Year’s Eve, you can open up your Gratitude Jar and look back on the awesome year you had! The only catch – no peeking until December 31st! 🙂
