My fortune cookie read, “You will meet with success soon”. My kids informed me if you eat the paper fortune, it will come true. I ate the cookie and the fortune in one bite. I had not eaten paper since a 5th grade spit-wad contest but I figured if it meant I was meeting with success soon, it would be OK.
I realized my definition of success changed over the years.
Success to me is finding the bottom of my laundry basket before my kids leave the house. Or showing up on the correct day for an appointment, not a week early or late. Or being able to be myself and not worry about what other people think.
I decided there should be fortune cookies just for women.
Feel free to print them and eat them as recommended by my kids. Who knows, maybe they will come true?
