What, if anything, do you collect? I don

What, if anything, do you collect? I don’t really collect items, but I collect moments. A few years ago, my best friend and I had both separately experienced a really turbulent time in each of our lives. We were both looking forward to New Year’s Day so that we could turn the page on a difficult year. Around that time, I found an article online about making “remember-lutions” instead of New Year’s Resolutions, which most people don’t keep anyway. The idea was to write down every accomplishment over the following year– every moment that makes you feel proud or happy or grateful. Then put those little pieces of paper in a mason jar and watch it fill up over time. Then at the end of the year, read through all of your remember-lutions and be reminded of your blessings. My friend and I went to the craft store and bought a ton of items to decorate our mason jars together, and now every year, we get together and read through our happy moments. I really enjoy this tradition we have because it has shifted my perspective and given me an attitude of gratitude. #thereelwomen #womeninmedia #funnylady #comedian #actor #merylstreep #gratitude http://ow.ly/i/L10L0
