Do you believe?

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Hi Friends!

Today has been a weird day. Every time I turned around I was confronted with the statement or question of second chances. The issue at work today... I was told I got a second chance to fix it. The bank thing that happened, I was told it was ok, that's why they are second chance accounts. At least 4 times today I heard those two words together, it was starting to feel creepy.

Then I come home and decided to finally sit down and watch the first episode of The Biggest Loser which I had set to record on my dvr but had avoided watching because it made me feel like a total loser (not in the way the show means either). And of course the theme this season... second chances!

After that I decided to watch an episode of Extreme Makeover Weight loss and watched an incredible story of Mike, who mentioned at least 3 or 4 times during the show about second chance this or second chance that.

Then almost the end of the show, Chris Powell does something he does all the time but not like this time... he makes a statement which hit home so hard:

Mike has family,
He owns his own business,
He has addiction to food,
He fought back and did it...
What's your excuse?

When he said "what's your excuse," he turned and looked right at me. Of course, he was looking into the camera which I have seen him do so many times, I mean he talks to the camera most of the time. But this time he really WAS looking straight at me, it felt like he was staring right into my soul.

So, I ask you...

Do you believe in coincidence?
Or do you believe in fate?
...literally reaching out and shaking you like "wake up and look around you girl, you cannot ignore this any longer!"

Granted I have had a second chance probably a zillion times...


I chose to believe!

    I understand exactly what you mean about circumstance or life's timing...

    I had the same thing happen to me...

    I was having to make a long awaited decision at my job after many difficult, negative experiences. After I listened to my body that was telling me the chronic stress I was experiencing was beginning to show its signs, I resigned & also decided to retire.

    Two years ago I cut out a newspaper ad requiring VON team leaders to work with groups of seniors leading them through fitness classes as a volunteer. I was definitely interested but felt I didn't have the time since I was working nights & sleeping days. I kept that ad thinking it was something I definitely wanted to pursue when I retired.

    Well, the same week I gave my resignation, that very same ad appeared in our weekly paper. when I contacted the co-ordinator of the program & took both ads in for my orientation, we both agreed it was the fit for my health journey took this road which felt like a sign to surely has affected me personally. I have 1 week left to finish my training & I love the learning I am getting!

    I believe too. Coincidence or not, sometimes life surprises us.

    If I have faith in myself than I can believe in me.
