Hi All.

We, hubby and I, have started and 'INSPIRATION JAR'.

The way it works is, everyone in the house hold, daily, puts saying or task to do, that is positive.
Fold them so now one can see what each piece has written on it.

Then, when you and/or someone is in a bad, sad, angry, etc.. mood; Pull a paper out of
the jar and read it out loud,

share your feelings.

color/draw a picture

write a paragraph

This works wonderful for misunderstanding, horrible moods, focusing on what is important and self-compassion.

I wish is that all of you at least try it.

Peace

Trina:

That sounds wonderful.

You say: "The way it works is, everyone in the house hold, daily, puts saying or task to do, that is positive.
"Fold them so now one can see what each piece has written on it."

"Then, when you and/or someone is in a bad, sad, angry, etc.. mood; Pull a paper out of
the jar and read it out loud,"

"share your feelings."

Oh, I see now, you put into the jar a positive saying or task to do.

Then when someone is in a bad mood, from the jar they pull out a positive statement or positive task to do. Very nice. It mixes the two in a cycle.

What happens if I put in, "the car needs to be washed"? Then when someone who is in a bad mood pulls that out of the jar and reads it aloud. What happens?

When do you "color/draw a picture"? When do you "write a paragraph"? After you pull something out of the jar?

Yes, the choices happen after the slip is pulled from the jar. What is best way for that person the express their feelings.

I sample of a slip that would be placed in a jar would be:


" Hug pillow" then the person tells how this feels

"pet the cat" etc..

I hope you do it Tim Tam.

OK, the person in a good mood writes a positive statement. ("Hug pillow".)

The person in a bad mood may pull out that paper and read "Hug pillow" which may help them out of the bad mood.

OK. I feel better already.
