Today, I fly to San Francisco to welcome the Year of the Rooster with my family. As I was packing I came across this fortune that I had tucked away in my bag: “Everything will now come your way.” I don’t need or expect everything to come my way but it sure would be nice to have a better percentage of good fortune than what the the monkey gave us.
The Year of the Fire Rooster begins Jan 28th. Roosters are feisty and tough. They’re also resourceful, and courageous. The Chinese believe it’s critical to have a positive outlook on life in the first two weeks of the new year. Every thought and deed at this time determines the outcome of the entire year. Avoid any arguments or negative thoughts.
My friend Tim Jeffs shared with me his beautiful color drawing of the rooster. Tim captures the beautiful and boastful rooster in all its glory. Wishing you and yours good fortune in the Year of the Rooster. May we stay positive and restore the harmony and good health this lunar year!
