    Such a cute idea! Start 2013 off with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. On new years eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year.

    DIY Memory Jar: Jot down fun memories throughout the year and then on New Years Eve reflect on what a great year it has been!

  • Lindsay Gaynor

    This is an awesome idea that I saw on FB via "Crossing solitary paths": Everytime something good happens in your life, write it down and put it in a jar. Even small things. On newyears eve you open the jar and read all the good things that happened the past year. A great way to remember the year that has been! You can do this with birthdays - schoolyears or difficult periods to go trough. Just to remember that there is always a good in this world happening to you, even in the darkest times.

    Neat Idea!! "Memory jar! -- We keep this vintage pale blue canning jar on the kitchen counter with a stack of colorful paper and a marker. Every few days, one of us will jot down something that made our family laugh or smile. On New Year’s Eve, we’ll be emptying out the jar, unfolding each paper and reading them one by one. Next year, a new jar to begin again — and the best part is we can bring out past jars anytime to remember the little things that shaped our lives. A memory jar is more fun than a journal – as anyone in the family can contribute to it. The best is when one of us secretly writes memory and quietly slips it into the jar. I can’t wait to read some of the notes my kids have written all year long"

Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective.

    Last year, I made one of these, and was quickly amazed by how fast it filled up. In just a few hours, I get to unscrew the lid and read every little slip of paper...each a reminder of the things that blessed my life in 2014!
