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.
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.
What do you think? Will you be making your own jar?
