It is Friday the 13th, ladies, the only one so-called scary Friday this year. We all hate Mondays and love Fridays, but when it comes to the number 13 and the word Friday, most people dread this day. Is it a superstition? Worse. It is another excuse that people use to avoid responsibility for their mistakes and mischief.
After all, it is easier to have something to blame, like Friday the 13th, which is considered a traditionally unlucky day, than realize that you did something wrong. No more excuses, here are the things you should do today to never dread Friday the 13th again.
1. Something important to you
I have always been told to avoid starting doing important things on Mondays because it is a bad luck. You know what? Now I start any difficult project on Monday and accomplish it successfully. I am also not afraid of black cats, if one crosses my path I feel happy because I know that it is for good luck.
Break the old superstitions and stop following the crowd. Do what is really important to you today. You will see that it is just an ordinary day. Friday the 13th may even become your lucky day.
2. Adopt a black cat
Really, why not? If you are afraid of black cats, why not become an owner of one? You will see that black cats are as cute as white ones. Plus, you will give a poor animal home and family. Unfortunately, people who want to adopt a cat or any other animal, avoid black color. You are not them, so be unique and give a black cat or dog a chance. They deserve it.
