"I've realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green," Lopez wrote.

The Marry Me actress also referenced a piece of artwork that hangs in her office, which features a green bird perched on someone's hand and the words "Let Go" on either side.

"I don't buy a lot of art, but I bought this," Lopez said at the time. "One because I love hummingbirds, and two because I love the color green. Birds always fly around me. I've always had a special connection with hummingbirds. I realized that a lot of people say they symbolize love. So whenever it feels like wherever I go, they follow me. "

She added, "Whenever I am in a moment of doubt and confusion, one will magically appear by my window, reminding me that the universe will always speak to us if we are open to the signs."
