Since I moved into my new duplex I have swept the stairs religiously. Its a vintage building and I love it, but the very old steps had seen better days. I figured that the least I could do was sweep. Every time I swept the stairs I would see a bit more character in the layers of dulled red paint. Each time, they felt more fresh and more alive.
In feng shui, the walkway to your home is very important. It’s where you start to welcome everything you want into your home and your life.
The crazy thing is that after all these months of sweeping I woke up two days ago to see that the steps have been freshly painted!
And, it happened the day after I bought a new welcome mat for my front door.
Do you think its a coincidence?!
Maybe… but not completely.
I’ve seen time and again that when people take care of what they have, even if its not ideal – be it an old car, old pairs of shoes, or even the job that has long lost its luster- it sparks a kind of momentum. New things seem to appear. Opportunities arrive. The shiny and new show up somewhat magically.
I didn’t even have a hope for dazzling new stairs but now I have them!
Have you seen this happen?
It’s the famous Oprah quote in action:
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
If you are looking to have more of anything, take care of what you have! Even if its not ideal.
Take care of your money even if its not enough. It will grow.
Take care of the love in your life and you’ll have more.
Take care of your home even if its miles from your dream house. You’ll get closer to the dream.
It’s a simple idea but it echoes through your life in a huge way. Try it and you’ll see what happens with a little gratitude in action!
