Fortune Friday: “You will be fortunate in the opportunities presented to you.”

They say that fortune favors the bold—that Fortuna, the goddess of luck, is more likely to help those who take risks or action.

Every circumstance in life presents us with the opportunity to choose our reaction or response. What we see as good or bad is open to interpretation. How we choose to react is up to us. We can decide to view everything—even things we would normally classify as trials or problems or as negative—as a fortunate opportunity.

A chance to shrink or grow. Contract or expand. Flee or fight. Run away or stand firm.

A chance to shine bright or flicker and fade away into darkness.

It is easy when things are going our way. The real test of our mettle is how we respond when life throws us a curveball.

Be bold. Be strong. Be fortunate.

To your good fortune!
