Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.
I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!
So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:
What do you guys think of that?
My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."
But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of this.
Remember when I said in another post that connection may involve letting our guard down so we can heal and heal others?
Maybe this cookie refers to connection, how we cannot remain an island and be happy. By connecting with others on a true soul-level, we can be the means of good to others, thereby elevating our own happiness quotient.
And then there's the fact that for many people, volunteering our time or donating money to a good cause makes us feel good, right? And that is also a form of connection, so that holds true here, as well.
Wow, that cookie was deeper than I expected!
Tune in next time I open a fortune cookie. In the meantime, let me know: does this fortune cookie's message mean anything to you? Comment below!
Oh, and by the way: Happy Lunar New Year!
