Good Inspiration in a jar



"Every time you smile at someone it is a gift to that person"-Mother Theresa
Inspiration comes in many forms; literally meaning "breathed upon" - Also, divine guidance or influence exerted directly on the mind and soul of humankind.  It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life!  

Both of these jars were sent to me from The Lettered Cottage.  They make great gifts for anyone on your list who might need some good or a bit of being "breathed upon" 365 days a year!  Each jar has a daily quote to draw from.  Do you need some good inspiration?

That's a great idea! A friend and her husband observe the traditional gifts for their wedding anniversary. This year they celebrated their tenth - and the gift was tin. She took a tin container and filled it with 365 memories from their years together. Creativity abounds in the world!

These are great. I love quotes and Mother Theresa! When she was alive I always hoped to meet her, perhaps... Thanks Patricia I'm off to visit. Hugs... xoxo

That is really cute idea. I once put notes of inspiration in my friend's pockets of all her suit pockets (without her knowing). She was laughing for weeks about it. Love it!

Fun! I love the quote of mother Theresa, sometimes we are so busy with our own things that we forgot to smile to the people around us.

These are a great idea!

At times I try and channel my imaginative muse for inspiration. I also listen to music, as that is an inspirational spark. I also live with my eyes wide open for inspiration.
Great post.

I love the whole idea of these (and the look)!

Perfect quote.

I love inspiration jars! The day I moved to CA, my grandmother gave me one filled with inspiring handwritten notes. I cherish this very special gift.

Loved the reminder of the word inspire. To breathe life into life, to create, it's where the magic is. Your blog reminds me of that every day. And I think women supporting each other to become their dreams is divine guidance.

I have my daily inspirational quotes delivered to my email from TUT.com. The first thing I do when I open my eyes in the morning is grab my Crackberry off the nightstand and to read them. Then, of course, I look for blog comments left by certain night owls...

Frau said...

Great idea I love it.Love the Mother Theresa quote, people rarely smile here and I find myself scrowl now. Not anymore!

Jess Constable said...

This is such a great idea! I could even see doing this as a gift for a friend's birthday... the wheels are turning.

maureen said...

Oh my gosh, love this!!! I'm just now catching up on my reading and had to say this is fab. I did something like this (but not as elaborate) for my husband's Christmas gift a few years ago. He's still saved several of the tiny papers that came in the jar.

A unique and lovely gift. I think this is the type of present you give to the special people in your life or all the people who would appreciate it.
