The Blessing Jar

The blessing jar is a working that's been making the rounds on social media for a few years now. It is a simple and empowering ritual: write your blessings big or small as they happen and put them in a jar. Do this everyday throughout the year...

I tallied up many, many blessings in 2014...

After I took them out of the jar, I read each one and placed it in my journal...

The jar is ready to be filled again and the blessings have already started to pile up:

I wish you a healthy, happy, prosperous and wondrous 2015!


  1. What a great idea! I'm going to try and do this. If I'm lucky, maybe I can get my teenagers to try it too. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Stacey! This is one of my favorite long-term rituals ♥

  2. I like this idea too. However I just got a vintage fountain pen working again (with purple ink) so I'm doing a slightly different, although similar, thing this year with a gratitude journal. Purple ink in a lined journal with a Hokusai woodblock print on the cover. Yummy.

    I must say though, the coloured papers in this jar look yummy too. You can never have too much colour in your life.
