Day 13- Fortune Cookie

Honestly, who doesn’t like fortune cookies?  OK, maybe you don’t if you’re gluten- intolerant or you don’t enjoy cookies, but, you probably enjoy the fortune inside.  Regardless of how silly it may be, you look forward to learning a Chinese word you’ll quickly forget, checking out your lucky numbers, and seeing what life philosophy you can learn from a baked good.  Today, we did just that for NaPoWriMo.

I looked up fortune cookie fortunes online since I didn’t have any handy (sadness).  The first and last lines are the fortune I decided on, and the middle is more of a motivational thing for me.  I am currently at the end of my lease with no where to live.  I just found out my company will not be taking me on full time, so I have no career at the moment in the industry I’m dying to be in.  I am graduating from college and becoming an adult.  Everything is suddenly changing and/ or ending, and I need to remember I create my destiny and I can and will overcome all of this.  I hope you will too, regardless of what you’re facing.

Today it’s up to you to create the peacefulness you long for.
Stop arguing, stop bickering, stop fighting
Stop telling each other how to live life
Bossing someone around does nothing.
Stop holding yourself back, saying you can’t
Because you absolutely can.You create you destiny
             Not me, not her, not him, not them.
You create the place you live
The mindset you have
The beliefs you feel.
So stop with the excuses
Do what you need to do.
Today it’s up to you to create the peacefulness you long for.
