You Can Take A Chance

One day last week I had Chinese takeout at my desk for lunch.  I found a fortune cookie in the plastic bag containing my food.  This is what it said:  "The next few days are a lucky time for you.  You can take a chance."  Though not terribly superstitious, something about this unsolicited advice and message of hope really touched me.  I felt energized to do something about a few things in my life which have not been going really well.  I used the energy to do things  I had been putting off for a while.  Now I wait to see whether "luck" would come my way as a result of the chances I took last week!  I'll let you know if the hopeful prediction comes through.  In the meantime, I think the best way to approach life's challenges is through optimism and hope and hard work.  Of course any good vibes and idea you could send my way are most welcome as usual!  Have a good Monday everybody!

It is very hard to calculate the likelihood of the "lucky message" happening without knowing the lucky numbers printed at the back of the fortune cookie. But I'm sure hard work and hope will get you wherever you like, even beyond the fortune cookie's message

Over time I have realized two things are true, "Fortune Cookies", "Hafez' Faal"

Dear Hamid:

Thank you for visiting me and thank you for leaving such a good set of vibes with your comment.

I went back to my desk to look for that fortune reading but couldn't find it to look at the numbers in the back! Boo Hoo Hoo!

I will keep looking for it, hoping that you will be able to decipher my fortune!

I don't just do faal with Hafez. I live with Hafez.

Thanks again my friend.
