The Wish Jar
Once upon a time, there was a jar filled with the wishes and dreams of a girl searching for her next path.
Each wish was carefully written and placed in the jar, where it sat collecting dust for a year or two.
The jar was forgotten. But the girl was working quietly. A little bit every day. Slow progress. But progress for sure.
Then one day she looked up and saw the jar on her window sill and wondered.......
....what she had even written. And, even more curiously, had any of them come true?
And as she unravelled each of the wishes, she realised just how far she had come.
All but two of the wishes had come true. Not always in the way she had expected, but nevertheless, the dreams had been realised in one way or another.
The two that were left - one was no longer a wish. One is still a dream. A really big dream.
But if you can achieve this much with a little a day, surely a really big dream is reachable one day, no?
So here's to wishing and dreaming and celebrating the tiny steps that get you there in the end.
Dream a little dream for me, okay. :)
