The Scent of a Wish

Sometime last year, I ended up buying several scented candles, many of which were intended as gifts. One jar in particular still remains with me, though, because I’m simply enamored with how it smells: clean . . . citrusy . . . refreshing.

My simple pick-me-up: a jar of scented candle.

Whenever I feel unhappy or if I need a simple pick-me-up, I always reach for this jar of scented candle. It helps that emblazoned in front of the container are the words “Make a wish.” As in:

  • I wish I’ll find my next WordPress inspiration soon.
  • I wish I’ll find a solution to this problem soon.
  • I wish the sun would break through the clouds soon. (In this photo, it finally did!)

You might ask: Are your wishes granted whenever you take a whiff of the citrusy scent in the jar? Honestly, no, but it calms me down and clears my head. I feel less anxious and more centered, and that’s important when things aren’t going the way we want them to, don’t you agree?

This is a belated entry to the theme Scent under Daily Prompts.
