Okay, not known as a prophet…however, ole Marilyn might have had a valid point here….
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you learn to appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself…and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe
That makes me wonder then that if the recent stumble I had on my stairway at home, where I dropped my coveted laptop computer, shattering it into 239 tiny pieces, was guiding me toward at long last purchasing my first Mac computer….clearly a sign. But then, was the unexpected recalculating of monthly funds turning me in another direction all together, forcing me to wait until another time, teaching me that I clearly must wait for proper timing or was the sudden sale of a new story I’d just written, by the magazine I’ve been courting for 18 months, a sign that indeed the stars were in line and I was meant to have faith in adversity and all would work out in the end or could it be the intern I just interviewed for my business today, whose father has a publishing company who wants to hear my latest manuscript, mean that buying that Mac is my destiny and the man I’ve been waiting for all these years will finally appear, that I’ll KNOW him and he’ll be available and accept all my peculiarities and tender spots and know just what I need, allowing me to at last relax enough to realize my true calling and that my forever dream of retiring in Borneo to build a health, wellness and creativity center is just around the corner……oh….you know where I’m going…..
Or as my late Grandpa Fuzzy used to say, ‘and maybe tomorrow a big turd will fall out of the sky and kill us all.’
I could go on but shall spare you.
Truth is…I’m off for a spell to have tea with my maker to see what he/she/it thinks.
I’m listening….I promise…..I’m listening and will GET OUT OF THE FLIPPIN WAY!
