Fortune Cookie Friday: Listen to Everyone

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

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had an AMAZING week! This week is a Fortune Cookie Friday week, so let's get right down to it!

Listen to everyone. Ideas come from everywhere.

When I gave a talk in Tennessee this summer about finding my voice, I discussed developing some listening skills as a route to finding our voices. I've found that if I'm just talking without really listening, whether it be in conversation with a family member or in a business meeting, my voice really isn't going to get me very far. Communication is a two-way street.

I see this fortune as encouraging us to keep an open mind and open ears! It seems that nowadays, if you express an opinion that differs from someone else's, a fight can ensue. (At least, this is what I see online.) Tempers flare and friendships end—over what, exactly? It's okay if someone has different thoughts or opinions than you do, and if we all remember the rules of civil discourse, we have so much to learn from each other! Ideas DO come from everywhere!

But just because I think one thing about this fortune doesn't mean it's the only way to think about it. I'd love to know what YOU think, too, because I really enjoy hearing what others think about the world, and feel I can get to know people better by simply listening to them. So leave me a comment below or on any of the social media venues listed at the bottom of this post and let me know what you think, okay?

While I'm at it, I just had another thought, so I'm going to follow it: this fortune can also tie in to something going on in my own life that I'd love to share with you. You see, at that same talk in Tennessee, I also discussed listening with our intuition as a way to guide us in our communications. Indeed, intuition is what guided me in my talk.

My intuition can often be a source of great comfort, especially when navigating any tricky waters with conversations or if I have a big decision to make. It never steers me wrong when I'm in tune with it. But when I'm not in tune with it: DISASTER. I say the wrong thing, make the wrong name it. I am not a happy camper when I'm not listening intuitively.

Can you relate at all?

Being in tune with your intuition takes practice. Just as developing active listening skills takes practice, so does listening with your intuitive "ears."

Would you like to find out how to connect to your own intuition more readily and learn to listen to it?

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…
