That belief quickly became the mantra by which I lived my life.  I began wearing a lotus blossom necklace, below, daily.  My work environment was currently not great and I needed the extra boost.

Putting positive energy into the world worked out for me.  Shortly after I began wearing the lotus necklace, above, I met my now husband.  I noticed he was wearing the Om, another symbol of Hinduism, around his neck and when I pointed out my lotus necklace, it sparked conversation that eventually led us down the aisle.

Over time, I decided to go for a less obvious interpretation of my belief and I started wearing a simple lotus petal, below, on my finger.  I get many comments on my ring and people are often delighted when I share the deeper meaning behind it.
