On New Year's Eve, 2015, my sister made us do crafting....Oh Boy! Jars and old magazines & glue...That was it. We cut out and pasted what we wanted for the new year, for our lives. I pasted on my jar, things that I wanted, such as more music, more dancing, more volunteering, more giving, success. ladder to success. $$, etc. Anyway, Inside the jar i only put a few tore off pieces of paper with a couple of things I was thankful for....then it sat on a shelf, soon forgotten.
The following year, which is now. 2016- I got it out & decided that this year would be different and I would put it to use. I found a magnetic clip and it securely sits on the jar lid. I pulled out my paper cutter. I shredded paper into fortune cookie sizes. I put the paper in the clip on top of the jar. It sits on my table. Along with my morning coffee, I can write down my blessings & my thanks. Wrap it up & put it in the jar. I am also saving all $5 bills & as much of my tips as possible. I made a slot on top of the lid & glued the jar shut ...so that I don't spend any of it. There will be an over abundance next new year...I will be prepared...as the new year brings so many bills for me ,as a small business owner. & self employement taxes...very overwhelming...i never want to be as stressed and overwhelmed as i started out this year. Next year will be Easy & Blessed, straight away,...right now i am cultivating that. with gratitude & thankfulness.
