Today I felt fortunate. The odds seemed in my favor for the first time in a while, it was refreshing. However, there's this daunting sense that tomorrow is going to smack me in the face because today was just too simple. Fortune cookies should come with a clause, "good fortune tomorrow, but bad luck to follow soon after." Maybe I'm just too cynical. Maybe I should try to be more optimistic. Or maybe I should stop pretending that I am, and accept that I'm just a little pessimistic about things. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the good things in life, and I take those moments when they're up for grabs. But it's like catching the boquet at a wedding, the person who catches it is handed a "fate" that they don't necessarily want and everyone else just continues on unnoticed. Excuse the odd metaphor, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. I'd like to be optimistic, and see the good fortune coming before it's here, but it's just not that simple for me.
