I'm starting the gratitude jar project for 2017.
What I'm going to do is to write down every memorable moment or a good deed --- something to be thankful for or "What have I done today to make someone's life better?" ---- on a piece of paper and drop it into the jar.
By the end of the year, I'll look at all the pieces of paper as I review my 2017 at the end of the year.
The Gratitude Jar concept isn't something new. I think it'll be a great way to start the year with hope and love.
Maybe I can call my project "Jar of Merits". Things like having a great meal and being thankful for that, or simply enjoying the luxury of having peace of mind, good health, the energy to sprint up the stairs .... there's so much to be grateful for.
The Happy Buddha statue in the picture was a gift. I walked into a store, and the boss said I can pay for it with any amount that I like because the Happy Buddha will go home with the person it has affinity with. I brought the Happy Buddha into my home two years ago, and it's one of my favourite display items.
The two rabbits symbolise Playfulness, which is a very important element in productivity. Work hard, play hard. Work is a chore, play is a desire.
