My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Yeah why not? Why did someone have to go around telling everyone it is bad luck?I'm going to go smash all the mirrors in my house now for good luck, thank you. :)
I'm okay with mirrors. I know the number 13 is not really unlucky but I feel myself trying to keep away from it.But you are right. It's all in our minds.
Superstitions are like the ultimate "I told you so." They're a powerful example of how faulty observation establishes causal relationships between independent variables and unrelated events, leading to entire systems of belief that have no basis in reality.
I agree 100%, and would only add the psych concept of Confirmation Bias, where it had been proven that we tend to pay attention to things that support our beliefs and give those things a great deal of importance, and we tend to either dismiss or rationalize away things that tend to challenge those beliefs
thats actually very funny to me lol
Trust me, I always said that a broken mirror is a sign of good luck. And it has always turned out to be. Actually it's all in your mind. If you believe that something is a sign of boon then it is, if not then it isn't.
Whenever I break a glass or ceramic thing, I feel it's a sign of change coming. Sometimes it's good, sometimes not so welcome but still okay.
Great way to look at things. I agree that lots of things can be interpreted subjectively.
Luck is all in the mind. Anyone can be lucky if they choose to be.
A broken mirror really means good lucky if you don't cut yourself with its pieces!
It's a self-fulfilling prophecy, in a way. If you believe you're about to have terrible luck no matter what you do, yore going to walk around nervous and agitated, making you more distracted and careless and clumsy, which of course will result in more little instances of bad luck...Basically you'll now not only perceive the world as a scary place full of misfortune for you and then only notice all the unfortunate things that happen, which will ultimately affect the choices and decisions you make, your perception and treatment of others, and create a the idea of a lack of onus or control over anything: it's not me, it's that stupid mirror!And the reverse would happen if you believed it brought incredibly good luck.
Absolutely. Our destinies lie not in the shards but in ourselves.
Yet, there are somethings that we believe that will not change the reality of things.Once we are hit by reality, our beliefs may shatter
Outside of the main dialogue of superstition, this aphorism could be an insight on self-image and growth.
First, don’t break the mirror LOL! Actually, I love the idea of turning that old adage around and calling it good luck when you break a mirror, and that philosophy could apply to anything in life.
