How To Make A Rememberlutions Jar For New Year

How To: Make A Rememberlutions Jar

I have always made new year’s resolutions.

I have always failed.

They are generally the same each year; lose weight, get fit, do better at this and that… the list goes on. Each year is the same and each year I look back and feel terrible that I have let myself down once again. Are you the same?

Well no more. 

I have had enough of feeling bad. I have had enough of feeling like I have failed for another year. I am going to shake up the tradition- I am saying no to new year’s resolutions and yes to positivity!

Let me introduce you to my Rememberlutions jar. I have decorated it and filled it with lots of pretty paper and a nice pen. It is called a Rememberlutions jar because I am going to fill it with my achievements that I want to remember- those that will be celebrated at the end of the year. If I drop a dress size, it will go in the jar- if I don’t then it doesn’t matter. Every time I do something positive, whether it be family related, blog related or otherwise, I will make a pretty note and pop it in the jar.

I used sticky letters to write an inspirational quote on the jar, something to keep me motivated to stay positive throughout the year.

Rememberlutions Jar Notes

At the end of the year, the jar will be filled with happy memories, positive moments and things that I am proud of. No negativity, no failures, just happy notes that encourage and inspire me to do better the following year.

    Fabulous idea Katy! I’m going the route of doing more of what makes me happy and calm! Definitely think this the route rather than beating ourselves up over not getting far with resolutions x

    What a lovely idea Katy! I started doing a similar thing this year (though in a jar that is nowhere near as pretty!) but stopped doing it. Thanks for the reminder to start doing it again, and for your beautiful photos too xxx

    Such a lovely idea! Love this. So much better to celebrate our successes than set stupidly unrealistic targets in the new year. Great post. X

    This is a fabulous idea. I always love the idea of a new start at New Year but like you I always end up failing with any resolutions I make. This idea is so positive and lovely and your jar is so pretty. I may have to copy. Hugs and happy New Year lovely. Lucy xxxx

    What a sweet idea Kate, I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a while but I’m dabbling with bucket journaling this year so writing my positive things in that for the moment. I love this no, no pressure and you’ll have a load of lovely moments to look back on xx

    This is such a great idea! I’ve decided that I won’t be making New Years resolutions. I already have a lot of difficulties to face at the moment without adding meaningless stress and almost certain failure into the mix. I’ve been trying to write down successes in my bullet journal, but haven’t been particularly good at noting them done. A jar may be the perfect option for me! Xx
