My 2013 Happiness Jar

Hello…

Today I went out with my family to a shop that sells home decor. As I was walking around the kitchen section, I noticed lots of little jars for storing tea, cookies, sugar etc. Anyway, it reminded me of this picture that I saw a while ago:

I remember reading this and thinking, “I’m gonna do that!” but I didn’t find a jar and then just forgot about it. So, I took it as a sign and bought this cute little jar for £2:

I thought it was quite cute and decided to put a little label on it saying 2013 and wrote my first note…

The purpose of the jar for me is to write down achievements or funny moments throughout the year so that in 2014 I can look through them and smile. I know its slightly late in the year but, better late than never and I still have 9 whole months to fill it up with notes. My first note says: ‘Started Just Me and My Blog at the beginning of April 2013, average no. of views is 19’. I am curious to see how my page views will have changed by the end of the year. Hopefully I will have kept you interested enough to have  increased them significantly, only time will tell. 😉

Does anyone else have anything like this that they may have started in January? Have you kept it up? If so, let me know! I would love to hear it.

Martha.
