Yep…it’s not quite Friday yet, but I don’t care. I have 2 weddings this weekend and one of them is tomorrow so you guys get a little inspiration early today. So where does this lovely phrase come from? I can’t quite be sure, but my hubby (Nick) said it to me in the car on the way to the movies tonight and I researched it later when we got home and couldn’t find anything except yahoo questions forums where people were sincerely worried about actually getting a fortune cookie with no fortune.
We didn’t have Chinese or do anything special tonight. I actually can’t have Chinese anyway (egg allergy), somehow this just came up in conversation and it sounded brilliant. I would love to say that Nick is the source for this positive way of looking at the world, but I’m sure someone has said it before.
I’m not much for superstition so reading through all these sincere worries about getting a fortune cookie with no fortune makes me giggle a bit, although I have respect for all the ways people view life. Usually all my fortunes say I need to eat more vegetables. Touché. As photographers we are our own small business owners and therefore have to chart our own destinies. The success of our businesses only depends on how much we put into it. Therefore we truly are the ones who decide our own fate with photography. I think this quote is fitting and I hope it brightens everyone’s days going into this holiday weekend.
I, for one, hope all my fortune cookies are always empty.
