Sunday wonders - O

O is for Open.

Such a positive word!  When 'open' is added to other words we get such generosity:  open-handed or, perhaps,  hope for acceptance:  open-minded.   An open-ended question invites  much more of a story.   Staring open-mouthed in wonder is usually a good thing.  Or you could be praised for openhearted sharing.  An eye-opener may not always bring a smile but it is always enlightening. 

When I see the word OPEN, I think opportunity, adventure,  ideas, challenge, excitement : open doors or windows.  There could even be treasure if I say: open sesame in the right place and time! 

So much better than its opposite: closed.   No happy feelings here at all for me.

I never thought about Open being a positive word but it is isn't it? I like the picture of the open neon word.
It does make you feel just a bit happy.

I LOVE this post!!!!! I have been thinking of doing one just like it, but with a different word. But not as good as yours.

It's true Stephanie!
And when we're open, all sorts of new experiences come our way. That's the part that I find exciting; I love trying new things!
Open is such a small word too, but so powerful.

Closed isn't always closing a cover on a great book. Sometimes I'm sad it's ended but it usually always leaves me grateful for the entertainment. Sometimes--and don't tell the Nursing Police--I'm more than thrilled to close certain cases.

See? Open is good, but closed can positive, too. It all depends on how you look at it.
