Tosyn. I really think it's a brilliant idea. I shall definitely have a look at your post about this over the weekend. Nice One and thanks.
Keep the jar or box in an accessible place in your home or office.
Cut out little pieces of paper (small enough to fit into the jar or box, big enough to contain at least a sentence, try not to write too much or you will need a book at the end of the day).
This is the most important step: Write down "every" memorable event and milestone achieved in 2013 on these little pieces of paper and drop them in the "tool" (the jar or box), starting from the first day of 2013 to the last day.
Note: these memories and milestones don't have to be huge or extraordinary, every little event counts, but they should be very dear to your heart as they will serve as a reminder of the little blessings you have experienced in 2013.
Now after "saving" up these little nuggets of joy, try not to be tempted to open the jar or box before the end of the year.
On the 31st of December, 2013, make out time to open your "jar" or "box", relish pulling out and reading what you have written on these little pieces of paper.
Trust me, you will be surprised.
You will either realize that you were probably too quick to complain about life while forgetting these blessings.
It may just dawn on you that the mere fact that you made it to the end of 2013 and have two hands to open that jar or box, is a HUGE blessing in itself.
Not a bad idea yeah?
Now it's time to try it.
Please feel free to share your opinions.
