Happiness Jar

I was having my usual peek around pinterest (more of a couple of hours peek-that place is addictive) and have seen quite a few 'Happiness Jar'/'Memory Jar' type images pop up - then, a video from Gemma popped up in my Youtube subscription box about the same type of thing.

Basically, you get a jar, and as the year goes on, you fill it with little memento's from events etc that have made you happy. Then, on New Year's Eve, open the jar and have a good old look back over the year you've just had. 

When I first saw this, I did think..."well, there wouldn't be much in my jar after this year", but when I really thought about it, there has been some pretty good times that, at the end of the day, far outweigh any of the bad times. 

So, I'm going to start this year as I mean to go on - I don't really do resolutions, but I am going to really try my hardest at having a bloody good and happy year and not let myself get in the way of it! 

First things in my jar will be some little memento's from my besties wedding which was on 3rd January - a perfect start to 2013, seeing one of my best and oldest friends be so so happy (and to be able to be such a big part of it from planning to the actual day)!
Wedding casino!

I can't wait to see what else will be in my happiness jar! Will you be doing a Happiness Jar? Do you have anything in it already - I'd love to see.


  1. I think that this a really great idea, and helps you look at all the positives .. I have something similar, I own a bad day jar which is full of notes and memories from friends and families!! It definitely puts a smile on my face :) xx

  2. Yeah I think this is going to be really good for any down days and fingers crossed, there will be lots of good things to look back on at the end of the year :) xx
