I have been experiencing serendipities lately, that “like attracts like” thing.
- My author friend Kathy suggested that I look into getting my novel on the shelf at Letterpress Books. The two women I talked to there were named Karen and Kathy. As you might have already noticed, my name is Karen! and my friend’s name is Kathy!
- I was at a restaurant with my daughter recently. The place was packed and the staff was overwhelmed. The person who should have been waiting on us was cursing under his breath, and oh, leaving us sitting there and so not waiting on us. My own anger flared, and then I thought, WWWDD (What Would Wayne Dyer Do)? So, I decided to lead with compassion when I talked to him. And it turned out very well. He went out of his way to make things nice for us after that.
- I was at the register in a store and a woman was buying a deck of oracle cards. I heard her say she was a Gemini, then I heard the cashier say that she was a Gemini. I chimed in, “Hey, I’m a Gemini, too!” “When’s your birthday? Mine’s May 27th,” she said. “Oh! Mine’s May 28th!” I said. And then the cashier said, “Mine is (wait for it…) May 30th!” Hmmm…wonder where May 29th was?
It’s amazing how many occasions of this you can find when you are looking for them.
Maybe be brave and share your own below. 🙂
