The jar of wishes

To be quite honest I came up with this idea several years ago. But I was thinking that it may possibly inspire more people.

That is why I am sharing this idea with you today.

What is a jar of wishes?

In this jar -mine is technically a vase- you collect things you want to do. Things to get you out of your comfort zone. Things you don't normally do. It's nice to expand your horizon like that.
These wishes range from simple things to more advanced ones. I bought this vase and bunch of little cute and colorful notes. 

On these notes I wrote my wishes.
A few examples:

  • Do karaoke
  • Redecorate your house
  • Buy yourself flowers
  • Visit a ballet show
  • Book a trip and travel alone
  • Take a mermaid swimming class
  • Learn how to do stand up comedy and perform
  • Take yourself out on a date.  

I even invited some friends to do it for me. To get outside inspiration. I was just curious to see what they would come up with for me. I challenged them to do a jar of wishes as well. The idea is that you take a note out once in a while and work towards whatever is on the little piece of paper

I folded the notes and put them in my jar of wishes. I gave them a good toss with my hands to mix them up.
I call them my wish notes. 

It is such a simple idea, but I really love it. I just dusted off my vase and took out a note.
And guess what? It couldn't be more perfect!

It says: Today do something that you can do well, and enjoy it fully!

Let's say that today my day is going to be about writing and gathering more inspiration.
I really hope that you enjoyed this post of mine.

Would you conisder keeping a jar of wishes?
If so, I would love to hear from you and for you to share your jar of wishes with me.
Remember that I'll return any love given on my blog. Just leave your links below in the comment section.

  1. What a fabulous idea! I love the idea of it being things that may push you outside your comfort zone as I think we could all do with trying that every now and again!
