Collecting a jar of hearts


I read recently that for a lot of people January is their least favourite month of the year and that new years resolutions can be more destructive than helpful. It is more constructive to focus on the good things that are actually happening already. So, we've starting collecting a jar of hearts.
We decorated a glass jar and cut up some heart shaped pieces of paper. When we do something that we want to remember, that makes us happy or proud, we'll write it down. Then every few months we'll empty the jar, read the hearts and smile :-)



You could adapt this for Valentine's day, by writing down messages placing them in the jar and giving 'the jar of hearts' to the one you love.
