Gratitude Jar...


One thing I am going to focus my energy on this year, is appreciating my life more. I feel like I vent and complain a lot here....painting this picture of a negative life. Or constant negative state of mind.

Except that it's not.

I have SO much to be thankful for. 

-An incredibly kind and consistent boyfriend
-A GORGEOUS and hilarious step-son
-The. Best. Friends. on this planet
-Cheese
-A beautiful home
-Employment that I like
-Co-workers that I adore
-Enough food
-Money to have fun with
-The ability to forgive
-The good sense to know when to move on

So this jar will sit on our dining room table, with paper and pens beside it. And everyone who sits at our table to break bread with us, will be invited to add a little note of their own. At the end of the year, we'll look back at all the little, and not-so-little things we took a moment to appreciate.

The more you are thankful for, the more you get.

I don't make the rules, that's just the way it is.

The last part is not mine. I think you have a virus.
