When Something Flies Out of Left Field…

Have you ever had one of those experiences that makes you think, “if someone told me last week, this would have happened today, I never would have believed it!”  The last 5 days have been that way for me and it makes me believe in the adage “things happen for a reason”.  When I told one of my closest friends about a series of events this week, she said, “This is a hilarious yet very good lesson for you.  I look forward to how this all unfolds.”

I used to try to find answers for the things that seem out of left field and I am learning to stop asking questions.  There are times when it is better to let things happen and be aware of yourself instead of trying to figure out the reason an event has transpired. This was an out of left field kind of week as I crossed paths with someone I only knew of about 10 years ago.  When we crossed paths again, I was kind of perplexed because I had not given any thought to this person….ever.  Yet, he acted as if we had always known each other and he had been wondering about me for sometime.   I figured it was futile to ask how that is possible. My sense is there is a reason this person has entered my life and it is for me to accept or walk away from, rather than question.  It is always interesting to me when I meet someone I barely know (if at all) and there is an immediate connection. I am somewhat selective about my interpersonal relationships and it gives me reason to pause when I meet someone and feel at ease right away or sense things about someone with little information.

I think about divine timing, divine intervention and the things we are unable to see with the human eye.  A series of events can happen that seem coincidental; though there may be a divine plan for all of us. Karma and free will and choice play a role every day; however, I do feel sometimes in spite of beliefs, thought processes, choices, and divine timing take over.  If it was meant to happen, regardless of what you do, it will be placed in front of you or will come out of left field and how to proceed is up to you.  If you ignore the something it may go away forever or the something may be repeated till you address what needs to be addressed.  You can run but you cannot hide and resistance is futile.

For me, I am waiting to see what is next. I continue to do what I enjoy and what makes me happy.  Though when something comes out of left field, I am going to hitch a ride and see where it takes me.
