Fortune Cookie Friday: Dreams

Hello and welcome back to Fortune Cookie Friday! 

If you're new here, welcome to you, as well! If you're wondering what Fortune Cookie Friday is, well, you can read more here, but the basic gist is that I crack open a fortune cookie, take a photo of the fortune, and use its message to kick-start an inspirational post. I also love it when readers send in photos of their fortunes, or when they give me their interpretations. So join in the fun and make sure you don't miss out by subscribing

Ok, let's get to this week's fortune!

I grew this tiny plant from a leaf that came off another plant; so proud of myself!
Dreams are like the stars of your destiny.
What are your dreams? 

Don't hesitate: just blurt it out! Speak truth to yourself! It can be something big or small—doesn't matter. Dreams can take any form, and every step we take towards our dreams can open up the universe to us. 

You are capable of doing whatever you put your mind to. We often get caught up in fear or anxiety, or the fear and anxiety of others, though. Why? 

Habit, mostly? That's certainly part of it. We've been conditioned to fear. Look at all of the fear around us all of the time. We often don't even know we're taking all of that in. Fear can cripple even the strongest dreamers out there.

But there is another way: we can reject fear and choose LOVE, starting with loving and believing in ourselves, and then helping others love and believe in themselves, too. The kind of fear that manifests into talking ourselves out of things, or the kind that causes us to speak down to others who are doing their level best to achieve their dream serves NO purpose. We can live with intention and purpose instead of just letting life roll over us and keep us in a fear state.

What fear are you speaking over yourself and others? 

Notice it when it happens, and then STOP resisting. Let go of it! That fear has no hold over you any more. Do what you are made to do in this life and do it with ALL of your heart and soul. Do it with LOVE. Go for those dreams!

I'm throwing a few references down below to help you get there. If you'd like, tell me all about your dreams in the comments, below! :)

Not only are you the star of your own destiny, you might just be a shining light for others, too! After all, together we are all a part of this amazing cosmos of possibility and potential. Chase those dreams and SHINE.🌟🌟🌟

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…
