CONTEST: Fortunes don't always reap immediate results

For this blog, I've been trying to find meaning for every fortune in just one day. But in real life, fortunes don't necessarily work that way.

As my friend and former co-worker D'Erin points out in the example below, something you do today may become a blessing later:

"I just happened to get Chinese food for lunch today. So when I checked out your blog for the first time and it mentioned readers posting our own fortunes, I thought, 'Wow! I was meant to comment today!'

"My fortune is: Be prepared to receive something special.

"I have been under the weather recently, so a cure for the common cold would be a very special 'something' to receive. But, the more I thought about it, I realized I have done hundreds of things today. I spoke to people on the phone at work, I filled up my gas tank, I did some legal drafting, I added two friends on Facebook...

"Perhaps the something special that I am going to receive doesn't strike me as special at this point in time. But, looking back in a few weeks or months I will realize that an action or interaction that seemed so insignificant to me at the time really was 'something special' that ultimately added meaning and/or depth to my life.

"Time will tell."

Thanks for the post, D'Erin. By the way, D'Erin is very afraid of bugs. So if you happen to be working with her, don't throw something at her that resembles a bug. That would be very mean and hilarious.
