Fortune Cookie Friday: Creativity Is GO!

(This post may contain affiliate links, by which I may be financially compensated. See Disclaimers & Policies on my About page.) 

It's Friday the 13th, and that means it's a good day for a fortune cookie. 👍

Today's fortune cookie is about creativity! 

I found this one in an old journal:

Creative energy is up—capitalize on it.
This is so true in my life right now. I feel like a dam has broken and a lot is flowing through me right now.

This has been evident in some jewelry I've been designing using crochet thread, beads, and charms; photos I've been taking; things I've been writing—and I have a lot of ideas in my head.

When I get a lot of ideas in my head, sometimes they can get overwhelming. This is where keeping a notebook or journal handy (or a notebook app on my phone) can be helpful. I can jot things down, storyboard, or make lists, and then that helps me get ordered and make a plan for putting a creative piece into play.

And it is so important to capitalize on it when we have those inspirations, isn't it? Life isn't just work and school and chores and errands, and, and, and, and....

Commit to a better quality of life by pursuing your creativity in any form you wish—art, dance, music, crafts—whatever floats your boat, really! Get out there and get creative! Let's start a movement!

Drop me a line and let me know: what creative streaks are you experiencing right now? And how do you take your ideas and put them into action?

Have a great—and creative!—day! 🐝

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

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:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
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 thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
