Chinese fortune cookie wisdom

One of the most meaningful pieces of advice I work from comes from the quote  to “seek knowledge, even unto China. ”  To me this means that every moment in every place is a source for knowledge, so inspiration often comes to me from the most unlikely places.

Here’s what I found tucked inside my Chinese fortune cookie the other night.

One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimension.

I love stretching my mind. That’s what makes writing so much fun because I am always challenged to look at things in a new and unique way. Then the challenge becomes how to express what I envision so that others may see it as well.

  1. I think seeking knowledge offers us food for thought but creative ideas usually occurs only after we let go of seeking during a period of relaxation.

  2. Sometimes that ‘period of relaxation’ is just getting away from the computer! When I stop trying to make it happen, that’s when the flow begins.

    But then I have to scramble around for paper or back to the computer…or I’ll surely forget that brilliant thought.
