I didn't actually mean to stop posting after my 1,000th post. I've just been busy.
Right before the new year, I saw a tweet from someone who suggested keeping a jar throughout the year where you put slips of paper with notes about good things that happen to you. Then at the end of the year you take the papers out and read them, to remind yourself of small kindnesses and pieces of luck that came your way. I love this idea. It's so easy to forget the good stuff and only remember the bad.
I need to buy a jar, but I already have a few slips ready to put in it. And we're only ten days into the new year.
