Sometimes fortune cookies are deeply profound. I ordered Chinese food for lunch and received three fortune cookies with it. The first cookie said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
Wisely spoken, cookie.
How often do we hold ourselves back because we psych ourselves out into believing that we can’t do something? Probably far more often than we’d like to admit.
Not to get off topic here for a minute or anything, but does anyone else appreciate that fortune cookies use proper grammar and spelling? I don’t know about anyone else, maybe it’s a Virgo thing, but bad grammar and spelling seriously irritate me. I know I’m not perfect and some days I, too, spell horribly, horribly wrong. So most of the time I ignore the spelling and grammar mistakes of others.
Anyway, I opened fortune cookie number two and it said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
I think I’m having déjà vu. Oh, wait, nope. I just got the same fortune twice in a row. Do you think the universe is trying to tell me something? Like, maybe, I need to be more positive? Or think I can obtain the things that I want out of life?
Any guesses as to what’s behind the door for cookie number three? Drumroll, please…
“Embrace this love relationship you have!”
Apparently nobody told the cookie that I’m single because right now the only love relationship I’m having is with this delicious Chinese food!
That cookie was broken by the way. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to mean something or not.
Let’s hope it means my bad luck with relationships curse is broken! See, look, I’m more positive already!
