There weren't very many slips this year... Let's face it, 2016 has sucked on a lot of levels for a lot of people.  But there were some things I forgot to write down, so I will put those at the end.  For those who aren't familiar with this thing I do, I keep a jar full of little slips of paper with things that have made me happy written on them. On Yule, I open the jar and relive all the happy things that have happened.  I only had 7 slips this year but I've had lots more in the past. I've been wanting to keep a jar of regrets as well, to throw on a Yule bon fire or something, but I'm afraid someone (my husband mainly) would get into it and take everything out of context.

Anyway, here's the list, in no particular order.

I have a jar I keep on my altar that I fill up throughout the year with positive things that make me happy.  On Yule, I like to open the jar and read all the awesome stuff that I did and be thankful for everythig in the jar.

I coulnd't be more depressed.  I found lots of slips related to the $14 an hour job and the progress on my weight loss I'd made.  Here's the list in its entirety if you're interested. I think I'm gonna go cry for a few hours.

I have a jar in my house that sits on my altar, and whenever somethign happens that makes me smile or laugh or generally makes me glad to be alive, I write it down on a slip of paper and put it in the jar, and on Yule, I open the jar and recall all the wonderul stuff that happened ont he longest night of the year.  This list is everything that happened, in no particular order.

I have a jar that sits on top of my oven full of little scraps of paper.  And on those little scraps of paper are written things that have made me happy.  Sometimes it's big things, sometimes it's little things, but if it strikes me as something I'm really glad to be alive for, I write it down and put it in this jar.  I open it up on Yule and read them and think about all the great stuff that happened in the past year and how lucky I am to have had those great memories.  I wasn't sure what to do with the slips after I read them, so I trascribed them into a word doc to save them and I thought I'd share my list with you guys (since some of YOU contributed to the pile of slips in the jar!)  These are in no particular order, just the order I happened to read them in.  And not all of these were dated, but if they had a date I included it.
