MY GRATITUDE JAR
I got it! I’m finally doing it! I’ve read and heard about a few ways to practice gratitude and storing up notes has always been one of my favourites. I’m gonna be filling up my gratitude jar with all the bigger and more sentimental things I’m grateful for. At the end of the year I’ll open it up and read every single one of my gratitude notes. I believe doing this will not only help me remember just how blessed I am, but it’ll also fill me up with a positive and faithful spirit to kick-start the following year. As you can see, I wasted no time making my first entry :) Looking forward to filling it right up!
Before I dash off, did you know one of the many theories of the ‘pinch and punch for the first of the month’ ritual originated from Medieval times and supposedly brings good luck? People believed that salt made witches weak, so the pinch was pinching of the salt and the punch was to banish the witch once she was weakened by the salt… Them peeps were probably pinching and punching the same witches every month not knowing they were just coming back disguised differently every time, but that’s none of my business *sips * You can read about other theories here, as well as other first of the month good luck rituals, such as, ‘white rabbits’… interesting… to say the least. Meanwhile, I’m gonna make up my own!
Fist bump and air punch for the first of the month!
Don’t be hatin’, you know that’s way cooler than white rabbits and definitely safer than punching witches!
Thank you for reading! Have an awesome month!
