25 Pieces Of Wisdom From Fortune Cookies For When You Need A Little Extra Motivation


I’m a fortune cookie fanatic. Anyone who eats dinner with me, gets a fortune cookie. It’s a given. I know to some the fortune is just words on a slip of paper not to be taken seriously, yet I still get a fortune cookie almost every day because I like reading it and thinking of how it applies to bigger things going on in life.
