I want you to be happy. Some days are crap. That is just life.
So we have found a way to remind you on those it-is-so-crap-being-me-today-so-i-will-just-eat-a-family-size-block-of-fruit-and-nut-chocolate-under-the-doona-and-watch-Judge-Judy-days that you will be okay.
Let us introduce you to the Happy Jar.
I want all Nesters to think about starting one.
It is easy.
What you will need:
- A jar
- Some paper
- A pen
- Some glitter or other sparkly stuff if you like a little glamour in your happy jar
- Some happiness
Each day/week/month you write down on a little piece of paper your happy moment from that day. It can be something huge like ‘seeing my sister cuddle her newly born son’ to ‘I didn’t spill wine on my shirt at dinner’. It doesn’t matter. It just just has to be a happy moment in YOUR life.
The happy jar is to be used on those yukky life days when you need to be reminded just how great life can be. Sometimes a little note to yourself from yourself can help.
Let 2014 be the year to make yourself happy.
Trust me, one day in the not too distant future you will have wished you started one.
