My Reminder Jar
Because I can be a sensitive gal.....one who lets what people say get to me(I'm getting better about that), have days that I just feel sad, or discouraged and have PMS each month(which probably contributes to all that I mentioned)....I decided to make myself a reminder jar. I write down scripture, quotes from books, epiphanies, etc that have brought me encouragement or made me realize something. Things that have set me back on my feet, brought me back to what's real and true. Then, I put them in the jar. It's not filled very high.....yet.
The things I write may apply to homeschooling or parenting my children. They may just be things that.... simply encourage me. My hope is that on days I am feeling discouraged about anything....I can go to the jar, pull a piece of paper out and think "Oh,yeah!". Simple, but effective....for me. Maybe I should call it my a-ha moment jar??
Now, I just need to remember to go to it ;)
