I have a question to ask.
Do you remember the first time you bought and lit a candle?
I can guess most people would say no.
I do think people buy candles to evoke a certain feeling in their home and their moods, however but sometimes you forget how you even got started!
I do remember my first candle purchase. If I only knew then what I know now....down the rabbit hole Alice!
I was at the state fair for a band concert and we had free time to cruise around the vendor expo auditorium and there was a soy wax candle company.
I was in love. I thought that it was so cool. They had so many scents. I was stuck between a rain scent (masculine...of course I should have known then how much I already gravitated to those scents) and a fresh cut grass scent.
I picked the grass.
They called it Hay Field and I cherished that candle. I would barely burn it because I didn't want to never not smell that scent. Finally I caved and burned it and in so the love affair continued.
Candle after Candle.
But I always remember that first candle.
I challenge you to document how you feel when you light a candle.
How are you feeling when you chose that scent?
What is it making you feel?
I guarantee you there is an underlying reason behind that decision that means more than you think.
Thoughts to ponder over the weekend.
