July 21. Enjoying the Little Things

Daily Reminders
Someone showed me a photo of a gratitude jar she'd seen at a friend's home. The jar sat beside the coffee machine and was filled halfway with colored papers. She wasn't a big fan of keeping journals, but liked the idea of keeping track of the little things that made her day special (that great cup of coffee, seeing a hummingbird, watching the sunset). Her plan was to note 3 things each day and write all of them on one slip of paper. On Sunday, she stapled the week's stack, read them, and returned them to the jar. 

The jar is a good visual reminder for me so I swiped her idea  and set one up in my studio space. Depending on what kind of day I'm having, I can manage to squeeze about 6 items on a 3x3 post it note. If it's been a challenging week, the jar is a gentle reminder to keep an eye out for the good things as they appear.

Consider setting up something (a jar, journal or other method) to keep of all the good that comes your way every day. By the time the end of the week rolls around, you may be surprised at how much shows up.
