For Christmas 2020 I asked for a “big glass jar”. My husband lovingly obliged and I embellished it with some items from my scrapbooking stash. The idea was to keep track of ALL the things I was grateful for in a way that was a visual reminder. So, even on the not-so-good or downright miserable days, I was reminded to find a silver lining and write it down on a scrap of paper.
Here’s a link to the initial post from January 1, 2021 when I started the journey. I actually started putting notes in the jar ahead of time because I was so excited to get started.
This is how the jar looked on New Years Eve (yesterday).
I wrote down at least one thing for all 365 days of 2021. I plan to try this excercise again in 2022 because I realized that cultivating an attitude-of-gratitude is vital for my spiritual growth.
How do you manage your attitude-of-gratitude?
