Happiness Jar

A year ago a good friend explained to me the idea of keeping a happiness jar. I instantly fell in love with this practice and promptly created my own jar for all things happy. The idea is simple – set aside a jar into which you will put in notes describing all the things that make you smile throughout the year. Come New Year's Eve, you will open the jar up and explore its contents. Being able to do this on Dec 31st, 2014 made it one of my more enjoyable New Year's Eves to date. In the jar I found some of the following notes:

"Mom got a new job"
"Got keys to new place"
"5 Points of Life with the girls- made me tear up to get all their support"

I cannot express how incredible it is to re-live each of these wonderful moments. So I encourage you to start your own Happiness Jar – I promise it will only make you smile. Even more importantly, it will help you better appreciate and acknowledge the good things that happen in your life. My goal for 2015 is to include notes about the smaller things that make me smile and not just the milestones (for example - watching CFG athletes compete at Wodapalooza this past weekend had me smiling ear to ear). And you don't have to wait until New Year's to open the jar - dive in whenever your days are less than ideal for a boost of positivity.

CFG Twister is a solid candidate for the Happiness Jar
