Celebrate Positivity

A few months back, I attended Freutcamp, put on by the lovely Leah of Freutcake. There I met Natalie (of www.njinla.com), who spoke about the importance of a positive attitude, optimisim and surrounding yourself by others who inspire you. Well, she mentioned writing down all the good things that happen to you so if you are ever feeling down, you can pull out that list and remember that you are pretty AWESOME. I took it one step further and decided to create a Little Success Jar. Any proud or positive accomplishment that happens, I am going to write it down and put it in the jar. It’s a great way to practice an attitude of gratitude and keep your spirits up! What better time to start this than the beginning of a new year?

I chose to decorate my mason jar with wash tape and some twine. You can decorate yours with anything! Markers, paint, paper, whatever speaks to you.

1. Start by choosing large container. I wanted mine to be see through so I could see it fill up over time.
2. Decorate with your choice of materials.
3. When you are finished, find a few scraps of paper.

I chose to display mine next to my matchbook and wine cork collection. I think it fits in nicely on my side table, don’t you?

2 Thoughts on “Celebrate Positivity

  1. A couple of years ago, i started a gratitude journal. That was in addition to my personal journal, a journal for each of my kids, you get the picture. Needless to say, the gratitude journal morphed into my personal journal-I had to streamline! The success jar or blessing can or whatever it will be named, is a great answer to the too-many-journals problem! I love the idea of something that sits in plain view for all to see during those tough times! I also love the excuse to use(read: purchase) some of that great scrapbooking paper out there! Thanks for a great start-of-the-year idea!

  2. I love this! Natalie was so amazing & positive. This is a great reminder & so cool looking!
