This is from my personal blog, but fits in with every small buisness person I know. Start celebrating the good.
I think it is time that all of us started rejoicing in the good that happens in our lives. The big good and the little good. What happens is that we have huge plans to keep journals, write in a gratitude journal, blog, etc. The truth? We get busy and the good stuff just blends in with the everyday stuff.
Let's make it easier.
When something good happens write it down quickly on a piece of paper - any paper and put it in a jar. Put the date if that matters to you. Don't get hung up on the right kind of paper or the right kind of good thing. Just include stuff that happens that makes you smile, even if just a little. At the end of the year you will have lots of little scraps of paper to read through to remember that the year wasn't so bad after all.
To make your own jar download a set of my lids and instruction cards (there is a set for you and one for a friend). Cut them out on the lines provided. Put them inside the bands of canning jars. I used a half gallon jar, but any jar would work.
