27 Dec Countdown to 2013! A Jar of Good Things.

We saw this idea and thought it was fantastic!



Let’s all start our own jars. You can fill them with accomplishments, things you are thankful for, health milestones, friends you have made, memories you want to cherish, really all good things. In a year, let’s all come back and share the great things that happened in 2013.

We are getting ready for a wonderful 2013 and we can’t wait to share all the great things that will be happening! On the top of our list? A new book! We’ll have more about that soon, and Rip will be officially announcing the title next week, first on Engine 2 Extra in an exclusive interview! We are going to need A LOT of jars this year, we will have so much to fill up!

So who will join us in creating jars of good things?

Be sure to stay tuned – on Monday we will be offering a very special 2013 pricing for Engine 2 Extra, you won’t want to miss it, because after the first week of New Years we will be going back to regular pricing and we won’t offer the lower price till next year!

  • Pam

    mine is a box, if that’s ok with you. :) I have sealed it up and cut a slit in it for notes on all the good things that will happen. I have to make them happen too :)

  • Darinka Golob Wright

    I will start a jar!

  • Lisa

    This is such a great idea. We are definitely doing it. I think it would be cool to save the jars over the years and look into them in 15 – 20 years.

  • Cathy S.

    Yes, it’s a wonderful idea! Count me in!

  • Helena Burlison Lee

    I am going to fill mine with Random Acts of Kindness !!!!

  • Heidi Whitney

    Love this! I have a bucket that was going to have beans or grains in it, but I think this is what I’ll use it for instead! what a GREAT idea. Looking forward to adding good things to my good thing bucket frequently :)

    After finding out in October that I have Ovarian Cancer I can sure use a great 2013 year. I am going to do this also. I think it will be fun to see all the good stuff that 2013 will bring. Thanks for the idea.
