I was putting away my winter clothes this week when I came across the jacket I wore when I went to pray to the God of Wealth and found an extra 10 five-yen good luck coins I had placed in the pocket. Instead of simply throwing the coins back into my coin jar, I thought it would be fun to send them out to other bloggers so that they could make a wish to the God of Wealth. Then they can pass the good luck coin along to one of their readers who can make a wish and so on down the line. Then whoever has the coin at the end of this year, can send it back to me and I will take it to the shrine again and this time give it to the God of Wealth so that everyone’s request can be heard.
Happy me, I have in my debt-ridden little hands, Coin Number 3. I decided to take it for a walk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:
Be sure, this coin is ready for its close-up:
Now, I'm supposed to make a wish before I pass it on. And since it's a wish, not a goal, I'm going to make it a big one.
I'd like to let go of my bitterness about not having the time and advantages that money buys. I'd like to be a little less infuriated when I bump up against a financial limitation that holds me back. I'd like to stop being so mad and so frustrated about money all the time.
I wish for the strength to accept the limitations of my financial situation and the wisdom to make the best decisions I can while still pushing forward toward my goal to become a director.
I don't know if anything can really do that, but that's my wish.
Next, this little guy is headed up the west coast to Dave.
