Goodie Jar – Check In #30

Posted by terrepruitt on September 20, 2013

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Zumba, PiYo, Gentle YogaEEEEKKKK!  I cannot believe I forgot two check ins a row!  Wow!  My Thursdays got a little busier with the addition of the morning Nia class.  Definitely a good thing, but my schedule got a bit off.  Even though it has been almost a month since the first class, I need to work on my schedule a bit more.

This is a reminder about the Good Things Jar!  Ya know where we put notes of good things that have happened throughout the week?  Are you putting things in yours?  The reason we are doing this is to keep the good things at the forefront in our minds, in our hearts, and in our lives.  Yes, there are things that we can easily let bring us down . . . . believe me, I know, but that is when it is most important to remember the positive.

I am not a believer that you have to be positive all the time.  I believe that it is important to feel your feelings.  If you are sad go ahead be sad.  If you are angry go ahead be angry.  If you are frustrated go ahead be frustrated.  Experience all the emotions that you have.  BUT . . . . my point is don’t deny the good.  Don’t let all the things that CAN bring you down, bring you down and KEEP you so low that you don’t recognize the good stuff.

It could even be a matter of having to look at your Goodie Jar . . . . look how full it is and realize that there are a lot of good things that have happened.  Maybe you are struggling to find a good thing NOW, but that jar is full of good things . . . . and that in itself is a good thing, right?

Well . . . . . even though I forgot to remind you, are you still filling up that Goodie Jar?

    Yes, Yes, still filling good things in my jar…even on “bad” days we can probably find one good thing if we try, thank you for all the encouragement and reminders to keep filling the jar! Love ya and your jar looks so pretty!!


    • Yes. That is the point. Because even on “good” days there is something that could bring us down if we let it. I love your jar. Thanks for sending me a photo.

      Before I took the picture I took it all out and wiped it down. It gets a bit dusty. And glittery because of the glitter paper.

      Thank you for participating! I hope there are others out there that are just to shy to comment! 🙂

      Love ya!

    Terre,I love the “Goodie Jar” idea. Your blog has always been so jammed packed with great ideas and helpful information that I can always find something new to make my life better. I guess you are a living “Goodie jar!” Dwight


    • Oh, thank you so much, Dwight. I know you are a man that would have to swap out jars (because it would fill up fast) or you would have to use a really big one. I know that you have stuff that can get ya down if you let it, but you are a bright light! — I know that because your wife brags about you all the time! 🙂

      Thank you again, Dwight!
