Blessings Jar

So, I mentioned in my last post that someone on Facebook posted something about a jar where you put in good things that happen throughout the year and then read them on New Years Eve.  So, I have officially decided that this is my project for the year.  I tend to focus too much on the negative, so I think this will be a good opportunity to try to focus more on the positive.  I'm calling it my Blessings Jar.  I will put in good things that happen, blessings from the day, things that made me smile.  You get the idea.  I don't have to put something in every day and I am not limited to one thing per day. I'll write the date and what the good thing/blessing is.

Because I'm more motivated when I spruce things up a bit, I took a trip to Hobby Lobby after work.  Here is what I came up with:
A jar, some ribbon, and some small square scrapbook paper.  $10.  I'll probably need more paper later, and might just do regular paper, but to start off with, I thought the colored paper would be more fun.  Here are my first two entries:
Sometimes short and sweet and sometimes a mini journal entry so that I can remember the context of the note.

Hopefully I can keep this up throughout the year!
