Friday the 13th folks and for me I always think of it as lucky! I have a friend that was born on a Friday the 13th and she has always considered it a lucky day - so after meeting her (when we were about 13) - I bought her story. Because I much prefer lucky don't you? Here's some ideas to make your Friday the 13th more lucky!
No. 1 - Think Positive
I love this poster "It's Awesome Time" by Fifty Five His. Having something like that hanging around your space today would most definitely help in the luck situation! Via Knack Studios.
No. 2 - Grab Your Lucky Charm
|'home is where your heart is' necklace (mountain) - Lisanne Janssen|
No. 3 - Counteract Bad Luck
|Porcelain Salt Cellar - Rae Dunn|
My grandmother was pretty supersticious, and some of that rubbed off on me. Even now that she has passed I find myself playing her little supersticious games sometimes automatically, like throwing salt over my left shoulder when I spill some for good luck, etc. So how about not being supersticious? Do the opposite! Spill some salt on purpose; toss it over your left shoulder and bring on the luck!
No. 4 - Keep Stress Levels Low
|Dhalia Garden Tea Towel - Elkhorn Design|
No. 5 - Clear Negative Energy
|High Desert Smudge Spray - Sweetness Herbal|
In First Nations / Native American culture the spirit of the sage plant is known to purify whatever is being smudged. Whether it's by borrowing from another culture, or just doing a happy dance - clear negative energies and influences.
No. 6 - Take Chances!
This one's pretty self-explanatory. And as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
No. 7 - Make Lemonade!
|Oh Happy Day|
No. 8 - Be Thankful
Thank your lucky stars, your best friend, and all the things that surround you!
Let's face it, luck is usually a combination of positive thinking and making things happen. It's all in the mind and how we perceive things. So today my friends, may the force be with you! Have a fantastic Friday the 13th!
