Listen to the fortune cookie

Patience is a virtue that does not come easily for me. When I'm waiting for something to happen I become anxious and focus all my thoughts on waiting. In the mean time life keeps happening around me and I feel like I can't continue until what I'm waiting for happens. Sounds fun right?

Last week when I was waiting for test results I was consumed by the waiting. I was eating Chinese food and opened up a fortune cookie. My "learn Chinese" word was d─Ľng - to wait. Even my cookie was telling my to calm down. I saved the fortune and taped it to my computer at work. Sometimes the universe is good at giving you just the little nudge you needed.


  1. I love when things like that happen.
    Over two years ago before my boyfriend and I were leaving to go to separate colleges hours apart, we both got the same fortune in our fortune cookies that said something about good hopes for the future.

    1. they are eerily accurate sometimes :)
