You should know by now that I am a BIG believer in omens.
And whether or not you believe in the meta-physical, it doesn’t matter.
Because just like a superstition, if you keep an eye out for omen’s, you will see them and…
Then your brain will start focusing on certain things, literally changing its chemistry and belief systems about what is possible.
When we got a lay of our new land a week and a half ago from the very gracious sellers, Anthony, the husband, took us down to some trail paths near the river.
And out of nowhere, a bald eagle flew down and landed on a branch next to another eagle on the other side of the river!
I have seen eagles in the wild (still no big foot though) but never in Hillsborough.
I took it as a sure sign of great things to come in our new home.
Then, just this morning, I took Dax and Mateena down to the river and a beautiful blue herron stood just 20 feet away from us. I watched as it gracefully took off a hundred or so feet to find a new spot.
Another great sign. Do I know exactly what it means? Nope, but that doesn’t matter.
All that matters to me is that I am constantly trying to look for the positive and I am constantly believing that I have a great life.
There is no reason that you can’t do the same. Yes, the brain is hard-wired for the negative, but so what?!
It’s your choice how YOU decide to think about life. Or, you can be like everyone else and let the ups and downs of life dictate your emotional state which then will dictate your thoughts. But don’t BE like everyone else….
