Gratitude jar

Posted by Suzi | December 23, 2012

Who used to save pennies when you were a kid? I remember (thinking it was the chicest thing ever) I used to have a huge, plastic cola bottle filled with all the loose change I could find. It took about 2 years of saving- and about 4 days of counting pennies- to amass the grand fortune of $20! Which actually was serious big bucks back then.

This week I fell upon the concept of a gratitude jar (inspired by Patron of the Arts). It’s such a good idea! Sometimes it’s so easy to get bogged down by all the big stuff not going to plan that it’s easy to miss all the little moments of bliss right in front of your eyes; a hug, one extremely well brewed cup of coffee, the stars, maybe just five sweet seconds of silence.

Because sometimes, when you look back, it’s the littlest things that mean the most, right?
