Good Thoughts Jar 2013- That’s a Wrap!

Posted on

At the start of 2013, I knew I was facing a challenging year.  Just how challenging it actually became was a complete shock to the system.  By committing to the Good Thoughts Jar, I knew I would have to come up with one good thought every day- even on those days that seemed impossible.  As I read through all 365 thoughts today, it made me smile, chuckle, a bit sad (with some reminders), but mostly I felt loved.   When you have physical evidence of the love and support you have felt throughout the year, it is difficult to feel sorry for yourself – no matter what is going on.  I have stumbled and even failed at things this past year, but most importantly I have grown.  I have learned valuable lessons.  I have realized that your mind is very powerful and when you start to focus on the good, you instinctively continue to go there.   I still have a challenging hill to climb, but I am committing to the Good Thoughts Jar this year and each year thereafter.  Here’s to continued good thoughts in 2014!

I discovered several recurring themes while reading through my good thoughts:

-Outings

-Creative Pursuits

-My Moves (I had to find places to live and move twice in 4 months)

-Happy Thoughts About Others

-Self Reflection and Care

-Reset/Refresh in Nature

-Support of Family and Friends

    • Thank you. The color helps to motivate me to keep writing those good thoughts. And I can leave the jar out as a reminder because it adds color to my room! 🙂
