How’s My Happy Jar? #heart #soul

Tee and I have been semi-consistently keeping up with our Happy Jar – the pint-sized Mason jar that we fill with scraps of paper with our blessings scrawled across in pencil.e3ab63fa21e6dfb51487351c26e324f8

A few weeks ago, we started a new Happy Jar – and we started to empty out the old jar, taking one or two scraps out each night and reading aloud the things we’d been grateful for over the past few months.

The conglomeration of our blessings is wonderful to re-examine.  We’ve been grateful for funny things our nieces and nephews say – my students – beautiful farm days – delicious and healthy dinners – there are a lot of food items, which makes sense because we usually do our Happy Jar ritual over dinner.  And because we love food.

Oh-So-GratefulHaving a gratitude practice is just one of those things that makes sense.  It seems New Age-y or cheesy, but it’s very practical – if you think about the things that make you happy, you will feel happy.  If you think about things you’re grateful for, you’ll remember how grateful you are.

What are you grateful for today?
