In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I was intrigued by the importance of a four leaf clover. Never fully understanding why it was considered to be such a prominent symbol for good luck, hope, and love, I did some digging to find out. I learned that for every 10,000 three-leaf clovers, there is one four leaf clover, meaning these are super rare and fascinating! Among other fun facts about four leaf clovers I stumbled upon, one particularly stood out to me. This fact mentioned that if you find one, you should keep looking around because they are more likely to be grouped together. Reflecting on this fact, I sort of related it to how we perceive happiness. I know it sounds cheesy but think about it: whenever we stumble upon something that brings us happiness, we seem to be more prone to finding new happinesses all around us. This could be said about unhappiness too. Whenever we stumble upon something that makes us not so happy, we tend to focus mainly on the negatives around us. No, I am not relating it to good luck or bad luck. I am relating it to the idea that sometimes our mindset can shape how we perceive the world. How happy or unhappy we view life to be could be a result of not practicing healthy mindfulness: taking a step back to breath and recognize the joys around us and the fact that every day is a new day to find our happy four leaf clovers.
