Happy New Year! Here’s To 2014!

Posted by terrepruitt on December 31, 2013

Well, last Friday I posted what was going to be my last Goodie Jar check in, but since today is Tuesday and it is my regular posting day and it is ALSO New Year’s Eve, the day I get to read my good things, I thought I would post about my Goodie Jar one last time.  I want to wait until my hubby is home so we can go through it together, but I think with a year of good things mostly relating to Nia he might get a little bored while I read them all.  Plus, I want to post about some of them so . . . . I have decided to read a few and post about them and then do the rest while we are together.  Because it is not as if by me reading them by myself they get used up and are no longer good things.  I can still share them with him when he gets home.  So it is all good — I think.

As you know, as I am sure you experience, there are a lot things that happen in life.  We tend to assign “good” and “bad” labels to them.  It is just a common thing for us to do.  Some people can find “good” in “bad” situations and “bad” things and it seems as if some people can’t find the “good” in anything.  But since life has its ups and downs and things that happen no matter what, sometimes it is nice to make note of the things that made you happy or made you smile or made you think less about the “bad” things and more about the “good” things.

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 YogaI really enjoyed making my notes.  As you can see I used all types of paper.  I thought it would be fun to have not only a full jar, but a visually intriguing jar.  I used colored envelopes and wrapping paper and a bunch of different types of paper.  I think it made the jar look like a good thing itself.

So here are some of the good things I have in my jar:

Sat., Sept. 21, 2013:  Nice rain.  Sliders open.  Peaceful.

Tuesday, Dec. 10:  Dinner with cousin Tracy.  House of Genji – Katy, Jim, Pattie, Pop, John, Tracy, Me

Teach at the Tannery!  Awesome!  Fri. 6.21.13

Dec. 10, 2013   Spot ~ Wonderful Girlie!

Ahhh.  Nice to be reminded of the Good Things that happened and that the things I have are good.  I am blessed.  It is a good thing to live in a place that has beautiful weather.  It is a good thing to be able to visit with family.  It is a good thing to be able to fill in as a Nia Sub and to do it at a wonderful studio.  And it is a really good thing to have such a great cat.

I hope you have a full jar.  I hope that you had a lot of good things this year.  I hope that you are able to enjoy what you have.

If you want please share some of the good things you put in your jar.  You don’t even have to explain them.  Just let us know what you put down on paper and put in your jar.

I see post on Facebook again about people doing this for 2014.  I do hope they do.  I have another project in mind for myself.  A more personal one.  I am sure I will post something about it as the year goes on.  I will probably do a post or two about good things too.  I think it is important to remember them and you know I use my blog as documentation for so many things.  So I am sure I will document some good things here.

I do hope that you can see the good that has happened this past year and reflect on that . . . and I hope that you are able to make 2014 a GREAT year for you and yours!

Cheers!  Happy 2014!
