The Best Advice I've Been Given


I Met this Woman probably a year ago. I meet a lot of people in my line of work. I work in Retail. People seem to like to open up to me because I'm always hearing stories about peoples lives. Sometimes I feel like a therapist. But, I really don't mind listening. Actually it makes me open my heart to these people and I always try to take some sort of lesson from a person's experience. 

This lady had explained to me how she had always wanted to go to Africa. It was her lifelong dream to go. And how she always wanted to start a tiger rescue in Africa. She told me how one day she found a plaque that had the exact spot in Africa that she wants to go written on it. So she bought the plaque. She believed as I do that there is so such thing as coincidences. She said you need to follow your dreams no matter how long it takes. Going to Africa was something she had on her heart for at least 20 years and even though it seemed impossible she said she wasn't going to give up. 

It reminded me that there are always signs. You can call it fate, serendipity, or kismet. There are many names for it. Over the years I've learned that there are no accidents. And if you look closely you will see signs. 

Sometimes when I am doubting a dream or questioning something fate will knock me on the head and I'll get a sign. Like you think about someone and suddenly you see them or they call you out of the blue. I think this is more then a coincidence. 

I've noticed Serendipity a lot in my life lately. Recently I was feeling discouraged about moving. I had looked at so many places and one place I really wanted fell through. But, I kept looking and then it was fate. I have three days left and I'm moving into my new apartment. There is still so much to do and I'm not going to lie I'm kind of freaking out. 

It is so difficult trying to figure out what you want to take with you. I'm afraid I'll leave something behind. Change is necessary and good. It is actually much needed. But, even good change can be scary. I'm leaving a house I've lived in for the last 10 years of my life. It holds a lot of memories both good and not so good. 

I'm excited for change and for what my future holds. I know fate has a funny way of making things work out for the best. As they say "when one door closes, another one opens."
