Today's fortune: September 26, 2011

Today's fortune: A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.

An interestingly-worded fortune for a Monday. I like this expression, and I'll probably start using it in my regular vocabulary.

And patience is a powerful concept for me right now. I still haven't heard whether I got that gig I applied for at work, and it's starting to drive me a little bonkers. But according to this fortune, I can afford to lose some of my brains as long as I hold on to a handful of patience. Having patience also means I can realize that if I don't get this gig, it's no big deal. Another one will come along in due course.

I also used patience today to help a couple friends. An old pal of mine is applying for a job at my office. She has an interview this week, but she's stressing out about it, because she's applied for several jobs at Acme Co. with no luck. I was able to share some of my experience, and hopefully it comforted her - I too applied several times at Acme before they hired me, and I can't count how many times I've applied for jobs where it seemed like I was the perfect candidate. I didn't get any of those jobs.

Another friend seemed to be stressed out at work today, so I shared my fortune with her. I think she'll take it to heart.

Today's carrot was plain, but yesterday Jamie shredded my carrot and served it to me over pasta. It was delicious, and yes, it was a whole carrot.
