A dream written down (as opposed to stuck in your thoughts) is WAY more likely to come true. While I can’t prove this to be a fact, I certainly believe it is.

I recently created what I like to call a ‘Jar of Dreams‘. What is it? It’s a container that holds and celebrates all of my happy memories, wishes, goals and dreams. It’s helped me to understand what I want in my life and what my priorities are. And it’s a super cute reminder that I can look at it every single day.

A Jar of Dreams is a great way to further your personal development, but it’s also a great gift idea for engagements, weddings, birthdays, graduations, and more! It’s even a fun idea to put one together as a keepsake for future generations. Gather your supplies, ’round up your friends or family and start dreaming!



  • Jars
  • Markers or paint
  • Masking tape
  • Pen or pencil
  • Paper
  • Anything else like fairy dust glitter (regular glitter will also do the trick), chalkboard paint, spray paint, ribbons or any other decorative accessories. Be creative, make it your own! Stick photos in the jar or even tie your dreams together with beautiful ribbons.


Need some extra inspiration? Have a look here on Pinterest (and add photos of your own Jar of Dreams)!

  3. My dream is that everyone i love, especially the people who go thrue a difficult time, find inner peace and the courage to build a little bit of happiness… My second dream is to work as a therapist for those who need it. I wish i had a home to call MySpace. And a second child that brings joy in my family just like my first one.

    One of my dreams is to see the world! This year I absolutely want to visit another continent… I want to go to South America… Bolivia or Colombia, but there is so much that has to be arranged in advance!
