Fortune Cookie Friday: A Clean Conscience

This post may contain affiliate links, by which I may be financially compensated. See Disclosures

Hi everyone! A little housekeeping before we get to this week's fortune: there will not be a Fortune Cookie Friday next week due to my travel plans. Instead, I hope to be able to make an update or two from the Mountain Gypsies' Gathering 2018, either on my Facebook page or here. I hope you'll tune in for some updates instead of a fortune next weekend. :)

Ok, now that that's out of the way, let's look at our fortune for this week:

A clean conscience is a good pillow.
I love that I got this one this week, because the other day I was fretting about something that was making me mad, and it was getting pretty late at night. I didn't want to go bed angry, so I just... LET IT GO!

I slept great, too!

You see, while I believe having angry feelings may be normal, it does not need to take up my brain space or my soul space beyond the initial moments in which I have that feeling, so I just stopped. Once I empowered myself by setting some emotional boundaries and decided that I get to choose my reactions, I was able to clear my mind and rest.

I chose to rest.

So while the word in this fortune is "conscience," I'd take that one step further and replace it with the word "mind." If you have something on your conscience or mind, don't let it fester.

Before you go to bed each night, consider some of the following:
  • Saying I love you.
  • Saying I'm sorry.
  • Being grateful.
  • Not going to bed angry.
  • Asking for forgiveness.
  • Forgiving YOURSELF.
  • Smiling.
When we engage in simple steps like these, we raise our positivity and gratitude quotients, leaving less room for the ugly stuff. We can truly let our souls and our minds rest and rejuvenate while we sleep.

What are some of your tips for a clean conscience or rested mind?

Drop me a line and let me know! I'd love for you to share them. Have a great weekend, everybody! Get some rest! 💛🐝✨

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…
