life’s been interesting these days.
i know there are lessons to learn lately – the universe keeps throwing things my way
making me stop
making me listen.
in just under 2 weeks – things have just been weird
there was that phone call from my mom. i am not too sure that i have even recovered from that…
but that was the universe working it’s magic.
who knows what this means – or where this goes…
but the mere fact that it happened – means something i can’t even put into words
i will let it unravel at it’s natural pace.
the saturday following that phone call…i went to the reserve with my friend
as i was paying for my stuff and waiting for my friend to finish up
i heard someone call out my name
i turned around and my heart just dropped.
who was it???
if you’ve been reading my blog for a while – you will be familiar with my bff announcing she was with my ex
and all the mixed up crazy emotions i had over that.
it’s been a year and a half since i have seen or spoken to her
but there she was
in a totally different city – an hour away – at the exact same time as me
what are the chances?
and what are the reasons????
we said a brief hello – and that was it. had she not called out my name i never would have known
and so – why did she try to get my attention?
i guess if there is anything meant to happen from that
i will find out in time
and so – then i start thinking (like i don’t think enough right?)
i have been having some serious car issues since about October
i mean white knuckle driving kind of issues
i’ve taken it to my mechanic several times and he can’t find anything wrong with it
when i can’t feed my car gas on the highway – i’d say there is something wrong with it
it was getting progressively worse as time went on – to the point where i would not want to go to work
afraid i would get stranded.
i even went new car shopping – just to be prepared.
see – this wasn’t always my mechanic. i had a perfectly wonderful one my whole adult life.
we were always close. but i distanced myself when i had the falling out with my family.
i felt awkward…weird – going to him – considering how close he is to my parents
and so i just stopped.
i thought on Monday – maybe my car keeps screwing up because i am supposed to go see him.
that the universe is telling me…no…screaming at me that i need to do this.
i bit the bullet and i called him.
i was welcomed with open arms – with love – and not asked once why i haven’t kept in touch.
and as for my car? he diagnosed it in minutes…it was seconds away from being scrap metal.
turns out i just had a very shifty mechanic – who made me pay for new parts but never gave them to me.
i never would have this sense of relief – if i hadn’t gone to him.
i learned my lesson. i will never stray from him again.
i think not.
keep talking universe. i am loving my lessons. i am listening.
