A Memory a Day makes for a Wonderful Year! …

on December 5, 2012

There has been something on my mind for a few weeks now, it is about a New Years Resolution…I’m not even finished my Christmas shopping and I’m working on the New Year! I don’t like to make resolutions as it seems silly to me to say your going to do something and then fail, and believe me, I’ve failed at many of them!

This year I feel confident in my Resolution because it will be fun and enlightening, not just for me but also for my loved ones. I hope this will inspire my many Mesh and Brain tumor friends and my loved ones to follow suit, I sincerely believe it will open your hearts and  your minds to the infinite possibilities of life, all you have to do is believe and have hope.

So, what is this divine plan I am so excited about, it is about being thankful in a world in which it is very easy to forget about where we have been and where we are going…it’s not about the “stuff” we have or how many friends we have, it is about appreciating our lives and the people in our lives and for what we have as opposed to what we don’t have.

I am going to start a “Memory Jar”.  I will buy myself a nice glass jar and decorate it with pictures (this is where I will promote the website, shutterfly! ) of  all the people in my life. I will place it out in the open for all to see and I will be proud and excited to promote it!

The idea is that at the end of everyday, I will write down ONE single thing that happened that day that I am thankful for and I will fold that piece of paper up and put it in my memory jar. It doesn’t necessarily have to be something that happened, it can be something about you or a loved one that you are thankful for but I think the idea of writing about something thankful is that in a very negative world we will have to be acutely aware of our lives and will be inspired to find the GOOD in our life! It could be something as simple as someone calls you to see how you are or vice versa.

Imagine how it will feel at the end of the year to pull out all your memories and find that even though you think it may have been a crappy year, you will have 365 pieces of paper that will tell you otherwise! I think it is to easy to focus on the negative so I believe this will help me to focus on the accomplishments!

I was even thinking that in the New Year I may choose to read only one memory a day so that each day for the rest of the year I will have something to look forward to (especially if I am having a hard day) and be thankful for!

So everybody get out their jars and start making some memories!!!!

    A great idea Diane! In fact for Christmas this year I am giving all of my adult children (and their families) a “Blessings Box” (which I made) with instructions to periodically throughout the year write something on a slip of paper that made them feel good (something someone said or did for them, etc.)and put it in the box with the date and their name (anyone in the family can participate)……then the instructions I wrote out say to bring the slips of paper
    out on New Year’s Eve (2013) and read them to everyone….I think members of the family will be surprised to learn how a little thing that they did or said helped make someone else’s day!
