Heart Notes 2015


I’d been thinking about kickstarting myself out of the winter doldrums and viola!


Gotta love Facebook! Just when you’re feeling kinda low and can’t seem to see your way through the darkness, one of your friends shares a photo worth 1,000 words and a simple way of keeping track of accomplishment, appreciation (gratitude) and happiness this year.


Whatever you decide to call it a-Joy Jar, Happiness Jar, Gratitude Jar, Beauty Box, Bountiful Box, Heart Notes or to keep track of Accomplishments, fill it up, then review the past year and enjoy the life you are living!

Elizabeth Gilbert offers this inspiration:

“Here it is the end of the year, and I thought it might be a good time to re-introduce to you all the concept of a Happiness Jar.

Here’s me with mine!


What is a Happiness Jar?

The simplest thing in the world. You get yourself a jar (or a box, or a vessel of any kind) and every day, at the end of the day, you grab a slip of paper and write down on it the happiest moment of the day.

Even on lousy days, you do this. Because even on lousy days, there is one best moment (or at least, one least-worst moment.)

You stick that little piece of paper in the jar”…..read the rest here


Just the match for which I’d been searching!

  1. Hi MCatherine! You are absolutely right: even on awful days there are still bright moments and it’s important to honor and remember them. I recall seeing this Happiness Jar project last year around social media and it making me smile. I hope your jar is getting filled with lots of happy moments, and if ever there is a day where you need some extra love to fill your jar with, please reach out to me and I will send lots of love your way.
