At the end of 2012 (which had to be one of the worst years of my life) I read an inspirational post on social media. The idea behind it is you keep track of achievements in your life by writing them down and placing them in a jar. Then on New Year’s Eve, you open it and read the review of your successes over the year.
Here are the images of my 1st attempt at this feel good/ gratitude idea and I strongly advise you try it next year!
This is the funky bottle I chose to make me feel good – I thought even a few good things would fill this jar. and I was right by the end of January
I can remember some of the bigger achievements and a lot of these will be about my developing good health – I hardly recognise my life compared to 12 months ago. Amongst the achievements I can recall are;
Starting a blog
Looking for a house
Moving in with Mr G
Starting to write again
Sending submissions and book proposals
Finding new work
Attending numerous workshops and events
Meeting lots of famous poets
Putting the flat up for sale
So get your jars saved and ready!
