All good fortune is a gift of the gods, and . . . you don't win the favour of the ancient gods by being good, but by being bold (Anita Brookner)
Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend (Unknown author)
I believe I am very fortunate. Around me my little family are all finding new and exciting jobs. I am still applying regularly for new and exciting jobs; I know something good will come my way soon. Things are falling into place: our house is being sold, even thought the process seems long and there seem to be setbacks along the path.
This is what my fortune cookie today said. I rather like it. Although this brings up the age old debate about how much free choice we have in our lives. I like to think I have a choice in the way my life unfolds. I would rather interpret this as the Universe having a guiding eye over my proceedings and choices, and when I make an inappropriate choice, I might get a gentle reminding nudge in the right direction.
This calls for some quiet meditation time so I can hear the gentle whispering nudges. I think I need some right now. No, not because I have made an inappropriate choice; but rather because I am not quite sure where I am headed just at the moment. I am not being bold enough.
