Oops! I’m Doing It Again!

Posted by terrepruitt on January 2, 2014

Oh man, kind of a crazy end and a crazy beginning.  I said that Friday was my last Goodie Jar post, then I post another one.  Well, I actually said it was my last Goodie Jar check-in.  I said I am not going to do it again, but I am.  I really enjoyed going through the little notes and reading about the Good Things.  It was pretty much what I thought it would be.  It helped me remember some good things that happened during the year that I might have forgotten about.  It was really funny when I had to stop and think a bit to remember or understand the note.  Not many were like that, but a couple.  So I am going to do another year of jotting down the good things.  I am trying to think of something to put them in.  I am wanting to use a different vessel.  Oh, I just had an idea!  Maybe I will change the vessel throughout the year.  Right now I just started putting the papers in a small Christmas dish.  I plan on putting that dish away when the Christmas stuff goes up so I will have to find something else.  Perhaps a seasonal change?  Hmmmm.  Whatever I decide to put them in, I am doing the Goodie Jar again.

I will not be posting a reminder every week.  Maybe once a month or not even really on a schedule.  You get the idea and if you are participating you can put your container in a place where you will see it and that can remind you.  Remember this is just something to help us remember good things.  Also to maybe take note of some of the good things that are little that we might not remember by the end of the year.

In my last check in I talked about my friend who is so organize she has a place to put her “good things” after she read them.  I didn’t know what I was going to do with mine.  After reading them I decided.  You might know that our cat is sick.  A lot of my “good things” related to her “comings and goings”, let’s say . . . I did not feel the need to keep those.  Those were good things to be reminded of, but then not stuff that has longevity.  Also a few were about the weather and meals so that kind of stuff I enjoyed being reminded of, but I don’t need to keep that for future reference.  Not all the things were about Nia, of course.  So I made two piles; one was to be thrown away and the other I am keeping.  It fits in a small sandwich baggie and that is good for me.  The keep pile had things like visits with friends, stuff that happened WITH people and ALL of my husband’s contributions to the jar.

My hubby said he will participate again even though it isn’t HIS thing it is MY thing.  He participates in a lot of things that are “his thing”.  He is definitely a good thing for me to note for my Good Things Jar.

Are you going to join me this year?
