Do you believe in signs?
I don’t, and I’ll tell you why.
There were many times when I saw “signs,” which, by anyone’s definition would be something that appears in a person’s life that connects them to something specific. Right? Which, translated, would be some sort of coincidence.
Okay, so I’ve experienced many such coincidences and felt so sure that it meant X, Y, or Z. But they turned out to be no such thing. I couldn’t understand because coincidences can be so on point that it’s hard not to believe that there’s significance behind them.
For example, when I was job hunting years ago, I would read something about—let’s just say—strawberry jam and how good it is for you. And then, lo and behold, I would see a job posting at Strawberry Jam magazine.
Things like that.
Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? If so, then it’s easy to believe in signs. So then my question becomes, if everything happens for a reason, why then did these coincidences, or signs, occur with no corresponding results?
Obviously, this is a question that no one can answer as a fact, but I’m sure that many of you have opinions on the matter, and I’d be curious to hear them.
What’s up with these coincidences, and why do these carrots get dangled in front of me?
