I walked out to my patio with ready to enjoy my lunch, and within a few seconds I felt something wet drop on my head.
Sure enough it was Bird Poop!
I have heard that when a bird poops land on your head it is a sign of good luck. I investigated this claim further and here is what I found:
Many people believe this to be a major sign of wealth coming from heaven. Hence, although, it is really yucky and a major inconvenience, when something like this happens to you, take comfort in the fact that this is described as good luck being just around the corner!
This is a matter of perspective!
At first I did not feel very lucky, but after giving it some thought I chose to look at it in that way. My perspective made the difference of how I experienced the moments after this happened. I could have gotten angry from the mess in my hair and on my hand, but instead I smiled, cleaned myself off and sat down to a wonderful lunch.
Our perspective is a choice and it has a powerful effect on our mental, physical and emotional state. The choice to bring ourselves to the moment, rather than live in reaction will sustain a calmer, more peaceful state of mind.
