I have an old jar, it was once filled with homemade applesauce, and still smells like it. I took out some colored pencils and paper and started to write down happy memories. It was a great thing to do. I enjoyed remembering these things. I also started to write down things I want to accomplish in my lifetime, wishes if you will. Some of them are silly things, some of them involve personal growth, and others are experiences I want to have. I loved writing these out. I went through and randomly picked one and was able to smile about a wish that I hope one day will happen. Now this jar sits on the windowsill above my computer as a reminder of the things I have done as well as the things I want to do in my life. As I accomplish these things I'll write the dates down on the slips of paper. I'll also add new hopes to the jar as I discover them. And as I have more and more happy memories, I'll add them to the jar. I'm glad I did this. This jar is something I can see having with me for a long time.
Have you ever done something similar?
