The good outweighs the bad.
Here we are, the start of another new year. A NEW DECADE! People are making resolutions, setting goals, and making promises to themselves and others on how they are going to be better this year than they were last. We're proud of you for that. Any day that one wakes up trying to be better than the day before is an asset to our society!
Just one favor ... don't forget. Don't forget the funny moments of the year. You know those ones that you think are cute, fun, and that you will remember who you were with, and what it was even about. Likely, you won't. We all do it.
Several years ago, Stephen and I started to write down the funny moments throughout the year. Full disclosure, I think I found it on Pinterest the first year that I joined, c. 2010?! We cut up pieces of paper, placed them somewhere handy with a pen, and we wrote everything down. On December 31st, we would get up, grab Starbucks, plop down on the couch, and take turns reading them out loud. Some of them were hilarious, some were cute, others were sweet notes that we wrote to each other. One thing that never changed is that we did it together, and remembering the moments, sweet or funny, was our little highlight reel for the year.
Set a weekly reminder on everyones calendar to take a few minutes and write down a highlight of the week. Believe me, there are WAY more than you think!
