Ok guys, if you read the last Fortune Cookie Friday post, you'd have seen that that one referred to life being a play.
And then: THIS cookie was the next one I opened:
Make your life a mission, not an intermission.What is up with the theatrical references lately?! That's pretty neat!
Just last week, we talked about how, if life is a play, that you should choose the role that you want in it, before the curtain comes down.
This fortune is a great follow-up to that, isn't it?
And it's pretty simple, to me: don't treat life like an intermission. Life isn't simply a break where you run and get some coffee or a beer, or maybe go stand in line for the bathroom before the lights flicker, signaling that it's time to rush back and re-take your seat for the next act. Blink, and you miss it. Intermissions always go too fast.
Treat life like your mission. Don't waste it on mundane things. If you don't like where life is going, then make a plan and tackle it. Start by writing a mission statement. What would you change in order to feel like you were living fully?
A mission statement can be a simple one-sentence statement, from which other things can then grow. I'll start with the sentence that I had in my head when I started this site:
My mission at positively b.e.e. is to disrupt negativity by focusing on positivity, light, joy, and gratitude.
And now it's your turn: what's your mission?
Comment below or on social media if you want to share your mission or any additional thoughts! And if you want any of your fortune cookies to be featured on Fortune Cookie Friday, feel free to send me pictures of your fortunes.
Have a great weekend! 🐝
