I remember when I got this fortune. It was encased in a stale fortune cookie. And we won’t discuss the quality of the other food. I received it several years ago, when I was looking at 40 and terrified that my life was a giant waste. I have always been full of ideas – crafty ideas, logical ideas, even some good ideas. But I am not so good at the follow through. I have often wished that someone else would steal a few of them just so I can see them in action. But alas, my fellow man has not been so kind. I held on to it for a while. I thought it would bring me luck. Perhaps even push me to be proactive about my life. But eventually it got lost in the sea of clutter that surrounds me. I stayed stuck in my rut. I did not do the things I talked of doing. I did not follow through on my ideas. I let them sit around and get old and rusty. But in 2012, something clicked. I woke up. I did things I said I was going to do. I followed through. I feel like 2013 is going to be an even better year for me. After all, I found this today.
I should also mention that on the reverse side it says “LEARN CHINESE- Beer” and it has Chinese for beer. Not at all sure what that means. But I do love beer.
