So, as I’ve mentioned many times before, I struggle with depression. The other day while I was on Facebook a friend left a comment on one of my statuses and it gave me an idea. She said something to the effect of: “Drop that in your gratitude jar!” And it was like my brilliant bulb went off.
This prompted me to create a literal Gratitude Jar. The concept is that each day by the end of my day I write at least one thing I’m grateful for and drop it in the jar. At the end of my week I am to use these as points to reflect and mediate on. I’m thinking of letting my children in on the deal so that they can truly learn what appreciation is.
I’ll fill you guys in later on how that goes. 🙂
