Happy New Year! My family and I had an enchanting time in Hong Kong and revealed in all the sweet moments we had through our travels.
It made me consider how abundant my life is and how lucky I am. And with all the VPN-free browsing, I could catch up on all the blessings and challenges of loved ones on Facebook. In fact two posts stirred my imagination as I began to consider what and how I wanted 2016 to look for me and my family.
It started when I saw my sister post an idea about a”Gratitude Jar”- a large mason jar that one could write all the things that gave them a sense of gratitude. Later I saw that one of my friends had actually done that and was going through all the events that she documented as a part of her New Year’s Eve ritual. That sounded like such a cool way to ring in the New Year and it got my mind rattling off the possibilities.
I know where attention flows, energy flows. And if I wanted to upgrade my mindset in 2016, creating more joy and abundance, then this kind of tool would be perfect to help me do this. However, I wanted to take it a step further, beyond gratitude alone, and explore the realms of wonder and awe. I wanted a Jar of Awesomeness- to document the many moments in which my breath is taken away and I vibrate with unexpected joy- Miracles!
Furthermore, I didn’t want these episodes of miracles to be limited to a quaint mason jar. I wanted enough space, sort of speaking, to document these moments of Divine connection. So I found an old protein shake container-3x the size of the large mason jar- to begin this new habit of exploring the AWESOMENESS.
Already have a few ones in there from our trip from Hong Kong and I look forward to filling it up.
