It is amazing the stories we tell ourselves and how those stories can change our energy. Perhaps we are just spinning old wives tales, perhaps it is superstition, perhaps we just don't want to jinx anything.
But what if....you could consistently feel good and have things go well in your life all the time? What if you actually believed it?
How freeing would that be?
Where ever you put your energy expands. If you are looking for the third bad thing -- well, you are going to find it. If you are thinking about the other shoe dropping, well you are going to be looking out for 'when' that will actually happen.
Our fear is that some thing -- such as happiness, joy, bliss, will be taken away from us. It can't. Those qualities live within each of us regardless of anything external or anything that happens to us. It doesn't mean that life won't give us a wide spectrum of experiences -- but inner qualities can exist regardless of the circumstance.
Don't feel like you have to hoard your happiness -- feel it, expand it, share it, know that it has the potential to always be there. You have to be open to that possibility. Live in a mentality of abundance -- not lack.
Allow your self to imagine the 'what if I could experience more joy' mentality. You can. You just have to be open to it.
