A New Goodie Jar
Posted by terrepruitt on May 19, 2015
So, so, so many things to go into my Goodie Jar. I think the last mention of it was in March. MARCH! Here it is, MAY! Well, I have been busy filling that jar. So much so that I had to move it to a different container. And I think since it is only May this one won’t last long. Perhaps when this container gets full I will put the papers in the original container, the pitcher and we will just put things in the new container. It is AWESOME to have to have more than one container to contain the good things! Wahooo. This time it is really exciting because my husband has been putting stuff in. He put things in the pitcher the previous years, but this time he is putting stuff in more often . . . . hence the need for a different container.
My hubby is using some of the ticket stubs and things of that nature as his documentation of the good things. But he doesn’t just put the item in the jar he writes on it to state why the ticket/used gift card/parking pass/whatever made him smile. He is doing a great job. It will be super fun this December 31, 2015 because it will be more stuff from him and not so weighted towards me and my smiles.
I have had a lot of “student” stuff to put in the Good Thing Jar. Good things keep coming to them via movement . Today one woman told me that she is sleeping about two hours longer since starting Nia. Exercise is often praised for the help it brings to people regarding sleeping. Some times the help is in the form of better sleep and sometimes it is in the form of more sleep. I love that she recognized that her sleep benefited from Nia.
I have also had yoga people say this or that has improved. And, yes, again it is the exercise, the yoga that is helping. That is what is so awesome. Hearing people reaping the benefits of movement is definitely Goodie Jar Material.
Recently I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time with my three girlfriends AND my hubby. That was a special treat. Our friend that moved away came down for a visit and spent the day with us. Spending time with my friends is ALWAYS a good thing . . . . so it goes in the jar. Ya know, anything that makes me smile.
After that, one weekend we dog-sat my husband’s “co-workers” for the weekend. That was a treat. That type of thing is a Goodie Jar item.
Oh . . . .just writing about the Good Things in the Goodie Jar is making me smile. I can’t wait to read it all . . . . but then, I can because that will mean the year is gone. I will stick to thinking about the smiles in the container.
Well, this is a share and a reminder. You can start a Goodie Jar anytime. If you are doing one, have you added to it lately?
