Jars of happiness

I like the idea of these jars of happiness -- you put in a note every time something nice happens and then pull them out at the end of the year.

Homemade happiness jars (an idea by Elizabeth Gilbert) to be filled with inspiration, joy, tiny bits of paper with things that make you happy.
New Year's resolutions and the like seem too much like yet another way to set oneself up for "failing" and then beat oneself up for it, whereas this seems like a way to boost self-esteem gently.
