365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 159: Friday the 13th


Do you know why things such as “Friday the 13th” have power over people?

Because people give them power.

When I was a child I used to be worried and apprehensive about Friday the 13th, not because of my own experiences on the actual date, but because of the stories I had heard from family and friends.

Someone decided one day that Friday the 13th is not an auspicious date, and somehow it propagated into some kind of mass trance. The same is true about many other beliefs.

Things and facts and events only carry the weight that we are giving them.

Friday the 13th is a wonderful day to wake up in the morning, enjoy your coffee and decide how you are going to spend the day: with an open heart or in fear.

I’ll raise my glass to Friday the 13th!

Your choice!
