I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

Did anyone do this this year? I'm looking forward to opening my jar on Tuesday.

This sounds great! People have suggested that I write down a positive thing every day but I've found that too difficult. This sounds way more manageable, and in would really enjoy decorating the jar :)

I hope you enjoy opening yours on Tuesday Lindsay x

Yeah, I think that trying to force yourself to think of one thing every day is difficult and means you'd be left with less memorable things at the end of the year. I prefer to only write really significant things. Although I know this year I wrote 'cauliflower properly boiled not microwaved' which is not exactly significant!

Haha I like that re: cauliflower XD I guess it doesn't have to be significant as much as mean something to you?

Today, I was waiting to cross the road, and (once again) someone's dog on the other side tried to come over and say hi even though I was just standing there. I love dogs and they sometimes get very happy to see me which in turn makes me super happy, so I would absolutely write it down!

That would be a great thing to write down.

Do you think you will do this for next year?

I just wanted to share some of the things that were in my jar this year to give people an idea of what things they might include. Also I'd love to hear other peoples positives at the end of this year if they start a jar.

Some of mine from 2019:

First time donating blood.

CPN.

Matilda The Musical.

Yummy Easter eggs.

On TV David Cameron said "everybody knows" and my brain finished it off with 'badger loves mashed potato.'

Crookshanks smacking his lips when he's sleeping.

Galaxy caramel waffle with vanilla ice cream.

Some things RYLers have said.

Psychologist saying he was proud of me for coming to stress control (incredibly ****ing proud).

Dr Kahn from GPs: Behind Closed Doors, especially when he shared his lunch with the patient who fainted.

The kind SFRS people.

Trafficator on car looking like pointing finger.

Walking on wall on mindful walk around loch.

Cauliflower boiled in a pot rather than microwaved.

Chocolate apples.

Gym group.

CPN coming into work in her own time to see me because "that's how important this is."

TV - Wentworth Prison

They all sound like really lovely positives. Thank you for sharing with us. I hope you have many more mindful moments like this this year as well.

I really love this idea - I’m definitely going to do this for 2020! Thanks for the inspiration! I enjoyed reading your positives from 2019, too - thanks for sharing :) AND Thank you for donating blood - I cannot donate blood, because I have been a blood donor recipient in the past and they don’t let us give blood after we’ve had a transfusion in the past - but somebody like you who gave blood saved my life once - so thank you very much!

Those are really lovely positive things. Thank you for sharing :)

Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.
It'll get better. Until then, have a day."
