I used to be a huge believer in signs. It’s only in retrospect that I see the strong confidence I placed on fate… in destiny. At the time, I didn’t realize I was allowing random occurences to influence my decisions in the negative or the positive.
To me the signs weren’t random at all. They were attempts by a divine power to help guide me on my predestined path by helping me make decisions along the way.
Hitting three green lights in a row – a clear sign that I should stay the course. Flipping heads 7 times in a row – I’m definitely on the right path. The flight that cost $99 yesterday is $350 today – hmmmmmmm…. better postpone that trip.
I don’t do that anymore, but was reminded of a time when I did.
How many of you believe in or rely on signs? Do you follow them or purposely ignore them? Or do you forget about signs and just live day-to-day come what may?
