I have a cousin, who lives in CA, who has been in TV commercials and even been included as a character in her friend's published novel. She is now a life coach.
She challenged folks to take a look at the positive and happy events in our lives and write them down on "pretty paper" and place them into a mason jar this year. One per week.
Upon New Year's Eve, we dump them out and read them.
So? ... I joined the challenge.
Heck, if we cut down that dang dead tree? It's going in my jar. Only to me would that be a "good" thing! Ha ha!
It's sort of like a gratitude journal in smaller notes.
