Don't burst my bubble!

I have always wondered how some thing new in your life or when you embark on a new journey in life - it feels as if everybody or the rest of your world validates your decision with their contributions. For example, S and I were engaged for about a year before we got married. During this time, I would notice that his name would appear everywhere - on T.V., billboards, newspaper or I would meet someone with his name!! I always thought that its a sign and a good sign too. While S likes to think that you are more aware of it and hence take notice, I like to think that its providence! It is meant to be...

It amazes me that when I discuss any travel plans with S or I am looking for something to buy for someone, there is an article in the paper or a program on T.V. or someone forwards a link at the exact same time or I attend an interview in a particular company and everybody seems to refer to the same company in different contexts and conversations. I can't believe that all events are mere coincidences! How else do you explain the various occurences in your life? I prefer to remember only the good ones. In fact, except for my first job ( which also just happened!), every time we moved to a different place, I got a job thanks to a new friend I made somewhere( both in Pune and Paris)...and the best part is that they took an active role in helping me find a job when we were not really close friends. We became close friends later. I like to believe that they came into my life for a reason; to fulfill a desire! God has his ways of fulfilling your desires, you need to identify them! Of course, its a fact that I am blessed with such people who think of me for a job or anything for that matter.( Also, god's blessing, I think!). It works the other way too, you get introduced to someone to fulfill a purpose in their life...

I am always intrigued and totally believe in destiny. If it is meant to be, be it a relationship or career or anything signficant in your life, it WILL happen when HE thinks it is the right time! I believe only in happy endings and good things everywhere, i choose to ignore the bad ones or thoughts that disturb me. I love movies with any kind of magic in it and I don't care if it makes me very unrealistic! I don't want to burst my happy bubble. :)

Its my way of protecting myself. what's yours?

Hey!
I get what you're saying but nothing of this kind has ever happened to me. It's nice that it is happening for you and movies with magic are the best kind :)

Total filmy ishtyle and all :) But seriously, anything that works for you is something you stick to, so if this works for you, should just be the way you are irrespective of what others say!
I may not exactly relate to the feeling, but can believe it nevertheless.
I am one of those people who have to try bloody hard to chase a dream. At some stage putting in the effort becomes more important that success or failure, and that is my insulation from the after effects of failure. I try to make a career, or a plan, or a relationship work and give it an almighty try, if it doesn’t work, I move on easily.
My younger sister is so like you in this regards. She is such a happy go lucky kid, and things work brilliantly for her, just as they do for you. Seems to be some divine conspiracy, and I think I should change my horoscope :)
Cheers!

Vasu,

:) Divine intervention indeed! I am indeed a blessed child of God, I feel....there are some things that don't happen easily in my life too....but I would like to believe it will happen at the right time...and you can't have everything all at once, can you? :)
