We rarely get Chinese food but these three stories with fortunes made all the difference for me. As a family, we decided to eat at this China Buffet one night for dinner. They always bring fortune cookies afterwards so we let the kids go first reading theirs. When my turn came I opened this tiny piece of paper which was totally blank! Nothing written at all, not even the lucky numbers on the back. Everyone thought it was hysterical but not me!
After my disgust, I realized that maybe this could be something good. A “blank slate” to start over and begin again. This was a year before I started writing at all. Perhaps it was an indication of better things to come so I could connect with my soul’s purpose. No real reference to Warrior but that blank paper did get me thinking.
The next fortune did mean something and had actual words! This time it was thru takeout and it said:” Winning isn’t everything but the will to win is.” Wow! How incredible for me to get this message. That did make me think of Warrior. Within a month or so, Dana posted a photo of a fortune she received around her birthday with a personal message she took to heart. She and her girls believed Warrior delivered something special on her day to celebrate. I believe he did just that. ❤️
The last fortune I received a third time read:
“Strong reasons make strong actions.” This one also was very inspiring just like Warrior continues to be for me. These might not mean anything to most people but words can become so powerful with how we interpret them.
I believe in messages that can help us find our purpose. I was meant to have a blank slate to keep the will in winning and make strong actions. I will continue to pursue my fortunes in life always. I did get that other one— : ” The mind is everything. What you think, you become.” Sounds like Warrior to me…
P.S. My family still remembers my blank fortune 2 years later! I guess some things you never will forget. 😉😅👏🏻
