Last week all I could think about was time. How we use it, where it goes and what it means to us. I’m still very much obsessed, the concept just hasn’t been on my mind front and center as much. Which, I guess, we can call improvement. This week I can’t help but wonder about these so called ‘’clues’’ that we receive. Apparently they are everywhere. Some shout, some whisper and some smack us in the face because we walked passed them without picking them up. Exactly there is where the problem lies. How do we know the difference between a simple coincidence and a clue about our life?
I believe that some things are just a simple coincidence, but I also believe that the universe sends us clues that we ought to be picking up. Where does it stop being a coincidence and is it actually a clue? I mean sometimes you were just thinking about a person, then in the next five minutes you run in to them. For me that would be a simple coincidence especially if it is at a place where the chance of running in to them is high. But then again if you were thinking about them because they were just the person you need and you run in to them, it could also a be ‘’go for it’’ clue send to you.
There are also those times when things just work out especially well. You must know what I mean. Those times when things work out so well that you’re starting to think that you might be able to do magic. No matter how hard you try to pick it apart, you just can’t seem to understand how everything fell right into place. That has to just be coincidence. Or is the universe cutting you a break? I can’t help but wonder is there really such a thing as a coincidence or is all we do connected to create that moment?
↓POSSIBLE SPOILER AHEAD↓
In one of my favorite movies Eat, Pray, Love Liz says to regard everything we encounter along the way as a clue. However she stumbles upon this at the end of her journey. Is it when we are looking back that we will see what was and wasn’t a clue? But she also says that we ought to regard everything as a clue, which we could do going forward. But then the question arises; ‘’A clue for what? For which area of our lives? Personal, career, finances etc.?’’ When regarding everything as a clue does this imply that there are no coincidences? At all, ever? I can’t help but wonder.
In this thing we call life how many clues are we missing because we ascribe them to a coincidence? Better yet how does this affect our story?
