Fortune Cookies

If you've never had/heard of Fortune Cookies, you're cracked. But, Fortune Cookies are a mini dessert you receive with the purchase of a Chinese meal. Nothing is better than warm, Sesame Chicken with a Fortune Cookie! {This blog does have a meaning, it's just just random thoughts about Chinese food.} These little cookies have a saying inside each one. I wonder why they aren't called "Quote Cookies." Anyways, the 'fortunes' inside these cookies are like days. Yes, days. Sometime's these sayings are absolutely brilliant... other times, you'd think a kid schemed up the quote. Fortune cookies relate to days because sometimes they soar, some times they make you hit the friggin' floor. (This is a figure of speech, I've never collapsed due to a sucky 'fortune'). For example, I once received a fortune in a fortune cookie saying "Pick Another Fortune Cookie".. REALLY?!  We only got two cookies, at the time there was four people in my family... how was I supposed to pick another cookie?! This symbolized the day I made a 73 on a test in Honors Earth Science. Sucked.  Oooo, bad day. BUT, on the other hand, this evening my fortune cookie read "There is just one life for each of us: our own." 

Think about that.. There is just one life for each of us: our own... That, is brilliant. I'd even go as far to say that it is dazzlingly splendid! You really only have one life. You have to make it the best you can and live it to its fullest potential. Life is kind of like a 2L bottle of Cheerwine: if you neglect that soda, it will go flat. Then it is useless and nasty. If you treat your life like crap, it'll treat you like crap right back. Treat your life the way you want it to treat you! You can't control how anyone else's life is, no matter how hard you may try, but you can direct your life however you may wish. Just please never waste your life. You can't get back wasted time, just like you can't un-flatten that Cheerwine. There are people who would kill for a new life, a new start, but there is nothing you can do to get a new life. Everyone gets a fair chance to have one good life.  You can't go buy a new life at Walmart. So, somewhere someone is probably sickened at the way some people throw away there life like it is nothing. It's YOUR life, only you can make it happen!
