Over the years, I have collected fortunes from Chinese takeout that spoke to me and placed them in a pocket of my Franklin Planner.
(Yes, I still have a Franklin Planner….and a Google calendar, too. Just covering my bases.)
I don’t know why these crumbling, yellowed fortunes caught my eye today, but they did. And you can probably see why I kept them around.
It’s a very feel-good collection.
On my trip to Tokyo in July, I received the very aptly named ‘Best Fortune’ in return for a dollar and a prayer at the Senso-ji temple in Asakusa.
How’s that for positive thinking?
This fortune has earned a place of honor on the bulletin board above my desk, a very cheerful reminder of all the good things I have in my life.
And possibly more to come?
