This is my gratitude jar, given to me by my friend Naomi for Christmas. It came with the patterned pieces of paper already cut up and a special pen to write on them with and everything!
The idea is that every day this year I write something on a piece of paper that I’m grateful for and, next New Year’s Eve, I empty them all out and read them. Quite literally counting your blessings.
Why not start your own gratitude jar? You could make it look all kinds of pretty too. A quick Google will reveal that I’m by no means alone and there are all kinds of ideas out there for how to decorate yours. And what a great way to reflect on the year at the end of it.
I feel really hopeful at the start of 2013 and I’m fairly sure I’m going to fill up even this big tall spaghetti jar! Thanks Nomes!
You are so welcome my super friend! It’s a great way to remember how awesome and blessed we are!
Well done – such a great idea!!! x
Love them, I did a story about one in our first Newsletter of the year but called it a memory jar.. such a simple but very effective idea. I love that Naomi included pretty paper so it will always look fab too as it fills up x

That is a lovely idea 🙂 I’ve seen pics of ones with small objects as well as little cards. Very cool.
