Ah, yes…I am one of those people who look for signs all around me. I truly do. I hear them in songs and see them when walking down the street. One million other people may see the same “sign” – but I’m convinced it was sent – to ME.
Case in point. I’d recently completed a 3-month internship at Walt Disney World and was seriously contemplating applying for an advanced position. I only had one weekend to compile a proposal, and was adequately bogged down in last semester of college duties. I asked for a sign.
The next morning, I woke up an hour late, and rushed to get dressed and drive to work. Just as I was parking my car, I heard the song, “Beauty and the Beast,” by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson on a pop station. Now, I know…this may not seem odd to you, but I had never heard this song before. And, never on that radio station. It was, I believe to this day, un segno di Dio.
I spent the next three days compiling my proposal, made the 10-hour roundtrip drive to Austin for the interview, was offered the job, accepted, and moved to Orlando, where I was then offered a job at Disneyland Paris, where I then met my husband…
While this is not the only time I have felt the power of “signs,” it was the most profoundly life-changing.
Remember a few weeks ago when Peppe had that really bad day? You know…the 22,ooo euro day?
That afternoon, as we were driving to get a new coffee machine, we turned off of our street and saw this.
And, somehow, I felt a little better.
Happy Love Thursday!
