I am a keeper of those fortune cookie fortunes, if only to remind me of universal truths and because I think they are so gosh darn cute. I have a few posted by my desk and some links to share so I thought I'd combine the two.
Be mischevious and you'll never be lonesome.
Wisebread has an awesome guide about doing your own Halloween makeup. Even if you don't get around to sewing a costume, you can at least do crazy makeup. Warning: this post has sound when you open it.
The world is ready to recieve talent with open arms.
Almost Frugal has some serious talent for making homemade gift bags. And stay tuned for a series of holiday craft posts from Kelly and other crafty bloggers (myself included).
You will have good luck and overcome many hardships.
Sadly, I missed Blogger Action Day on October 15 due to the sheer bad timing of my vacation. A lot of bloggers did take part though, and Wisebread's entry about poverty fighting superheroes was fantastic. There are also links in the post if you want to get involved with helping others (and possibly yourself) overcome some hardships.
The joyful energy of the day will have a positive effect on you.
Sense to Save sees the positive sides of this recession, mainly the fact that it's putting into question some American values that aren't the best. Could agree more, Kacie.
Your mentality is alert, practical, and analytical.
A Dollar A Day posted a Declaration of Financial Independence posted on her bank ING's website (called We, The Savers). I feel like printing out and posting it, even if it's from a bank.
Smile when you are ready.
I have this one framed, typed up in a large font. Since I've been in kind of a funk lately, one of my coworkers suggested today I get a mantra. Something to recite whenever I'm scared or nervous about life that'll calm me. I was wracking my brain all day for one and when I started writing this post, I remembered my framed copy of this phrase was once in a fortune cookie. I think I refound my mantra. I love happy coincidences!
So may good fortune find you tonight, and check out some of these great articles that "spoke" to me if you want some good reading.
