It is so easy to focus on bad things because they are usually more prevalent in your mind. If you were to receive three compliments and one insult in a day, most likely (if you’re like me) you will remember the insult for longer. It’s sad that we are like that, and it can be a hard habit to crack! I look back on 2014 as sort of a really bad year. As I wrote my look back post, I noticed that there was actually a lot of good along with the hard times! I just didn’t remember them or take time to focus on the good.
So for 2015, I want to focus more on the good things. Maybe some BIG good things will happen and I want to acknowledge those moments for what they are, but I also want to recognize the small ordinary good!
I have seen this pin on Pinterest many times and I have been waiting for 2015 to roll around to start!
What a great way to document the good things that happen in a year, and not only to document but to sort of force you to focus on those positive, great moments.
I am not super crafty so I went the easy route and actually am using an old kitchen canister. I just got some new ones for the kitchen and had these laying around. Not super cute, but it works perfectly!
I already have two “moments” in the jar and it’s only day two of this new year! I hope this will cause me to be more grateful and thankful for the blessings God has given me and my family!
