Goodie Jar – Check In #37

Posted by terrepruitt on November 8, 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 YogaOnly seven weeks left until we get to read all the good things in our Goodie Jar!  Yay!  Oh my!  Only SEVEN WEEKS LEFT until 2014.  Time flies! WOW!!!!!!!!!!

So how is your goodie jar going?  Our cat almost made it seven days, but she didn’t so we started our “vomit-free” count down again.  Such is the life of a kitty with IBD.  At the time of this posting we are on 3 days and 21 hours.  Maybe we can make it past seven days this time.  It is really important for her not to throw up because she needs to gain some weight.  What happens is she start to look less skinny, then when she throws up it is like she is back at skinny cat again.  Ok, sorry, my goodie jar posts have turned into vomit reports, but hey, just proving that any good thing can go in that jar.

My jar is almost full.  I could press the papers down and it will probably make it until December 31, 2013, but I don’t want to crush them.  I will probably take some out.  As you can see they are all different shapes and sizes.

I hope you are still adding to your Goodie Jar.  It see some people are posting on Facebook everyday for the month of November about something they are grateful for.  Our Good Things jar kinda has a jump on that . . . .

Well, report in . . . how is your jar coming along?

Goodie Jar – Check In #3

Posted by terrepruitt on February 15, 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, ZumbaHere we are checking-in on our Goodie Jar or Good Things Jar.  Remember any good thing can go in the container.  Whatever you want it to be!  We are filling our jar for an entire year.  I am looking forward to a time when I have to empty my pitcher to make room for more good things!  Then on December 31, 2013 we are going to read all the good things that happened throughout the year.  We will ring in the New Year with a joyous feeling!

My friend who is participating in the Good Things Jar sent me a picture.  She has given me permission to post it . . .  so here is her family’s jar.  She is smart and has paper and pens right next to it!  I am going for the colorful and abstract look so I try to find different color paper and different sizes.  I have even folded some notes in different ways.  Oooo . . . maybe a fun time to take up origami.  Have some paper cranes in the goodie jar!

I will tell you that not all my good things are Nia related.  🙂

How full is your Goodie Jar?  Are you able to focus on the Good Things?

Goodie Jar – Check In #2

Posted by terrepruitt on February 8, 2013

This is my second “Goodie Jar” or “Good Things Jar” check-in. Since I am putting a note of “good things” that have happened into a jar to read on December 31, 2013, I think I might stick to this title and number.  Not sure yet, but as of now, it sounds like a good idea.

So far I have seven things in my pitcher.  I say things because most of them are notes I made to document the memory or event, but one is a “love note” I received from a friend.  She has created a set of cards from her doodles and I purchased a set.  A love note comes with the set.   The note made me happy and brought up additional memories so I thought it would be a perfect addition to the jar because it is a good thing and will be a reminder of many good things.  One of the other things is the jar is miniature copies of our tickets to a Sharks game.  It was my first one and it was really fun, so I added that as a good thing.

As I have stated, if you are participating you don’t have to share what is in your jar unless you want to tells us your good things.  I just thought I would share to give you an idea of what I am putting in our jar.

Since this is our second week hopefully you have at least two things in your jar.  So?  Are you putting things in your jar?  How many do you have?

Goodie Jar – Check In #1

Posted by terrepruitt on February 1, 2013

This is my first “Goodie Jar” or “Good Things Jar” check-in.  Where we are putting a note of “good things” that have happened into a jar to read on December 31, 2013.  The idea of this — for me is to remember to notice the good things that happen.  No matter how big, no matter how small.  It is to also serve as a reminder that even if or when there are things that might not be considered things that are a cause for celebration going on there are still good things happening.  Have this jar will be a fun way to review some of the good stuff that has happened throughout the year!

If you are participating you don’t have to share what is in your jar unless you want to tells us your good thing.

So far I have two things in my “jar” and they are both Nia related.  How about you?  Do you have good things in your jar?
