Opening Up

F. 807 120

My kids have a tendency to roll their eyes when I suggest they try to be more positive or envision a better circumstance. I have two pictures of waterfalls on our front door (inside, not out) because someone said the flowing water can represent money flowing in. They find this absurd. I also have a red plant outside the front door, but that doesn’t embarrass them the way the photos do.

Do I know for a fact that these things work? No, not for a fact, but I do know that they make me more optimistic and when good things happen, I’m willing to accept that they may or may not have something to do with it. I figure it this way, where’s the harm?

In this past week alone, I have had a second of my books show up in an Amazon email, I have discovered some promising promotional outlets for my next book, and I have found a new Facebook group for writers to promote one another that may also prove very promising. Does adding that second waterfall have something to do with it? Who knows, but I sure am feeling more optimistic!

    Waterfall pictures are nice to look at. Maybe I should replace the Christmas teddy bear wreath that we have hanging on the inside front door of our house. Thing’s been there for years and I guess that looks pretty weird to the rare visitor who steps inside our house.

    I say go on and feel optimistic and enjoy your waterfall pictures. Even if they don’t really have anything to do with increasing good luck, if they add to your sense of happiness then leave them where they are.
