2017 Happy Jar

 photo 2017jar_zpsqlnh7zpp.png

2016 was such a roller coaster ride for me. I am determined to have a positive and amazing 2017 and to help me stay focused on the everyday positives, I decided to start a Happy Jar…

It’s a quick and fun thing you can get together in minutes and it’s not too late to start one for 2017.

All you need is:

  • an empty jar
  • something to write with
  • colorful post-its or any scratch paper will do
  • optional jar décor
  • consistency

The idea is to every night before bed write down something or somethings positive that happened that day. You can write more than one per day if you’d like, it’s up to you. I’m going to focus on writing one per day. Then on 12/31/2017 open the jar and read all the positive and amazing things that happened this year.

Here are some ideas of things you can record if you have a hard time coming up with something positive everyday:

  • Surprise gifts
  • Accomplished goals
  • Something you thought was beautiful
  • Something that made you laugh or smile
  • Something memorable
  • A small or big blessing
  • A sign that something you’ve been wanting is on it’s way

If you make one, I’d love to see your jar… tag me on Instagram: LaDulcitaVida

    I’ve had a pretty unexpected 2016 as well.. I started a new job at the end of 2015, I met new people, I became a totally different person. I still have a lot of challenges to face in 2017. Bring it on 2017!!!!

    I like this idea a lot.. I’m thinking of starting this but I need a jar. Do you put the date on the notes?
