Some days you just want to save in a bottle. Life feels good, maybe not necessarily normal, but it feels good. No catastrophe, no tears, nothing new to learn. You’d love to bottle the day so you can pull it out on those other days when you feel so bottled up you wonder if you’ll ever be able to catch your breath.
On those days, life feels so closed in, like you keep crashing into a wall, a problem, a disappointment, an impossibility. If only the bottle would pop out a genie who could grant you three wishes.
On those days, the days when the day becomes the enemy, grant yourself three wishes. You can give yourself peace and comfort and hope. You can know you are okay, that you are doing your best, and that you will have better days. Because these wishes–the wishes that matter most–are yours to use whenever you need them. You are the bottle that keeps the wishes.
