#885 Finding joy from the bottom of a panda ~ a perfect omikuji for this blog ~
From the bottom of a panda
My friend M gave me a dish towel as a souvenir from her Tokyo trip.
Many kinds of animals were printed on the dish towel and it also came with a tiny ceramic panda doll. Inside the panda, there was a fortune slip. I took out the paper from the bottom of the panda.
This fortune slip is perfect!
There were writings that said “Small fortune (小吉). You will run into a few good things. The person who got this slip will receive some small fortunes this year.”
For a moment, I was disappointed with it because it wasn’t a big fortune (大吉). But after reading it again, I realized that this matches exactly the theme of my blog. I am always finding small joys in my daily life. This fortune slip is a perfect gift for me! I feel blessed from this fortune telling paper.
Find and collect small joys
Another friend Y is writing 5 short memos on her notebook everyday about small happiness. She said it was a good habit for her. I agree with her too.
It’s a very fantastic thing to find small joys in our ordinary lives. To find and collect them make us happier.
Thanks M, you gave me motivation to write my blog.
