Sweet Jar of Happy

August 15, 2012

The cool(er) temperatures in the mornings this week are a gentle reminder that a transition is approaching. Fresh routines. School. Sports. Schedules.

I recently saw this posting on the Facebook Page Homestead Survival, at it’s core a blog dedicated to emergency preparedness and homesteading but full of many sweet ideas for sharing gratitude and living in the moment. Always looking for opportunities to keep our daily life full of adventure and enriching experiences, this will be a great way to honor the seasonal flow.

Happy Jar

What you need:

  • Mason jar
  • Scraps of (recycled) paper
  • Pens
  • 10 seconds every now and then to share your thoughts

Start the school year with an empty jar. Each day jot down things that made you happy and pop them in. Everyone in the house can play – drawings welcome.

Making that glass jar half full will be a constant reminder of the happy around us each day.

On the last day of school it will be a treat to open. All those scribbles of joy will be mini sponges allowing us to soak in the happiness of the year.

Often something so simple can mean so much. Do you have any special fall or back to school traditions to help with this time of transition?

Keep the sweet talk going. We'd love to hear from you!
