The Joy Jar
- No victory is too small, and every joy is worth documenting.
- Attention brings awareness to the joy already present in daily life. Look around in wonder and with a grateful heart.
- It’s not a race to fill up the bowl. Quantity and quality are not mutually exclusive.
Melanie’s idea is that this is an end-of-year ritual, but one needn’t wait 52 weeks before reaping. Perhaps I will review the contents of my joy jar on special occasions like: my birthday, my anniversary, the last day of the month, a rainy day, a random Monday in July…
I shall celebrate every milestone. Every victory. Every inspired moment. Every single one. I shall count joys early and often, and in so doing, accumulate all the more.
Wishing you peace, love and joy in 2013.
