Yes, that’s right. I do wish this had come directly from my own well of wisdom, so to speak, but actually I lifted it from a fortune cookie that I got recently. Because of the slight difference in anatomical reference (just a few inches apart, but makes all the difference), my English friends might find it sillier than my American buddies. Either way, I am reflecting on whether this oracle is really in my best interests.
I reckon it means that luck is not just random, rather it is the product of very hard work. So, if I want things to go well in my life then I need to work really hard. Depending on how well you know me, you might have already noticed that I just can’t seem to help myself from working. Really. Hard. All the time. It’s as if I think deep down that if I rest for more than five minutes, the whole house of cards will most certainly fall down on my head.
As fortune would have it, I am indeed incredibly lucky in my life. I have more to be grateful for than I could begin to recount, so in that respect the fortune cookie may well be right. Having said that, I’m toying with the idea that maybe this would still be true without quite so much of the fanny-busting. I would like to remain productive and energetic yet create more space in my life for friends and family, reading, relaxing, stillness. Writing blog posts. Brushing my hair.
How is this done? Have you found true life-life balance, or what would you like to make more space for in your life?
Comment below, yes? I would like to hear how it is for you.
