We're all familiar with New Years Resolutions - and we all know that these resolutions aren't necessarily done out of kindness to ourselves. Rather than making a resolution based on my failings, this year I'm resolving to celebrate my accomplishments.
I've loved the idea of this resolution for years but have never actually done it. It's fairly simple - all you need to do is create a cute jar to store your accomplishments and memories and write each one on a little note to put inside. Come NYE 2016, you'll have a whole jar full of reminders on all the amazing things you accomplished! Jar decorating is optional. :)
The photo might seem a bit unrelated, but if I had kept a memory jar in 2015 the story backing it certainly would be in it. I met this extremely cuddly cow during my fieldwork in India over the summer. I was absolutely terrified of conducting fieldwork... but it ended up being one of the best moments of my life and one of my biggest accomplishments. :)
What stories would your 2015 jar have contained?
