The “Jar” of Happiness


We tend to always focus on the dark side, and somehow forget that lots of great things happen with us. There are always those first time things that marks our life once and for all. Once I saw this idea where you create a “Jar” at New Year’s eve, and for the rest of the year whenever something happy and a marking event happens youwrite it done on a piece of paper and place it in the jar, and by the end of the year you open it and check out the best highlights of your year.

I did it for the year 2017, although it was a challenging and rough year for me, when I opened my jar/box for this year it turned out that pretty first time events happened during2017. Beside all those down moments there were times that were pretty awesome.
Everyday brings something new to our life, the sum of the days making a year bring us some pretty interesting stuff. Every year we visit new places and new countries where we get to know a new culture, where we get lost for the sense of fun and exploring.
Every year we experience new things as silly as it might sound, it might be getting on a train for the first time, it might be as silly as tasting new food.
Every year we choose to walk away from some people in our life, at the same time we meet others that keep a trace in ours that we know will always be there even if they walk away.
Day by day we learn and change on the personal level, every small event teaches us something new, every single thing changes something within us.
That’s how life goes on, it brings us both the happy and the sorrow moments. From the bitter tears of goodbye, and the embrace of see you later, to the tears of the joy and the embrace of I miss you. From the blink of the eyes in the front of the sight of new things, to shedding your eyes away from something for the last time. From the ackwardness of first meetings, to sharing many happy moments to come.
Time and distance don’t change anything as they say, we tend to forget, but as long as we highlight the happy moments, we will see the good in our life, and we will be proud of how far we’ve walked up till now.
Let’s always fill our Jars with happy moments, today, tomorrow, and for the days to come.
