Today’s featured fortune may be lost, but not soon forgotten. A long, long time ago in a galaxy not so far away, this pocket prophecy disappeared along with the wallet that housed it. Luckily it’s owner had previously snapped a picture to remember their prized message. This fortune was originally saved due to its surprising reference to pop culture compared to what one typically finds. And it was kept for years due to the uniquely wise words that inspired it’s owner to follow his passions. So much so, he even had the quote engraved onto a ring as a visual reminder to take action towards achieving his dreams.
It is not surprising a fortune cookie message would quote the oldest and most sought after Jedi Master of all time. Yoda is one of the most popular characters of the Star Wars series. I feel it is due to his mysterious background, positivity, and above all, wisdom. With such nuggets of inspiration as the fortune above, or “you will find only what you bring in”, and “fear is the path to the dark side…,” even I can’t help but feel like a young Padowan hoping to soak up this knowledge. To achieve your dreams, there must be action. And the only hindrance of action is the fear of failure. Giving into the fear of failure can breed an inner resentment. And resentment can shadow happiness. So, lets all learn from the real master today, and take the first steps in “doing” what we have been meaning to “try”.
I really appreciate you sharing your coveted cookie fortune with us today. And may this prophecy yield success for us all! Thank you to everyone who is following along.
