To Do: The New Year’s Jar of Inspiration

I first saw this New Year’s Jar idea on Pinterest (God Bless Pinterest!)

And I absolutely LOVED.IT

I have had such a magical, inspiring last few years. I personally have grown and changed in ways I could not have imagined.

I am pretty darn proud of ME.

However, my memory is CRAP. I know there has been many little victories along the way that I would love to remember, but they have just slipped my mind.

THEN, I saw the New Years Jar. What a kick-butt good idea!

The New Years Jar

As I research the origin of that fab idea, I find that it came from a blog called One Inch Square and a blog post from 2008. Blog author Brooke Reynolds writes about putting notes in the jar of all the cute things their kids would say so they would not forget. Β She has the jar on her desk and whenever she hears something she wants to make not of she just grabs a piece of whatever paper she can find and jots it down and adds it to the jar.

And that is exactly what I am going to do! The jar will sit on my desk and be available for me to jot my little notes. I think I may reserve mine just for business and personal stuff though. The really sweet part is, at the end of 2013, I can look back on all the cool victories and milestones (most of which I am sure I will have forgotten about)Β  and it will be a sweet surprise of happy.

I think I will even date my little notes. Cool , eh?

Has anyone else ever used something like for inspiration?

  1. This is so sweet! Pinterest is always giving me little inspiring ideas too haha πŸ™‚

  2. I try to write in my journal every night before bed so I can preserve memories of the day, but with this jar you get the benefit of writing it down immediately before you can forget the details. πŸ™‚

    1. I agree! I always have good intentions of writing stuff down, but typically when I do someone has swiped my journal and crayons are hard to write with … πŸ˜‰
