Do you believe in stuff like that?
I often tell myself, that I’m a reasonable person and I know that these stuff is just bullshit. It’s easy with horoscopes, future telling etc. – all fun stuff to joke around when you’re in the mood, but nothing more.
Though sometimes I really catch myself being bothered by some “destiny signs”, of course especially when I’m not very certain about a decision and these “signs” are connected to that decision.
although I’ve bought like 20 book lately and I’m set with stuff to read for a while, out of the nowhere I had the urge to borrow this book from a friend, when I saw it on her shelf on a party at new years (a day good for destiny-kind-of-crap). Of course, since she haven’t read this book, I’ve borrowed it her in return in the hope, that she could find something really special for her there.
So on my first rail-ride to Bielefeld this year (where I used to leave before) I open that book and there is a dedication at the fist page, that says: “11.10.2006 Day of the Decision, Bielefeld?”. Then I started reading the book and pretending that this dedication didn’t meant nothing all, it’s not for me, there is a logical, not at all affecting me explanation of it, some kind of story, but not a story connected to me, not at all.
And still – it drove me crazy the whole weekend, all the time in my heard I heard like a church bells the ringing of the phrase “day of the decision, day of the decision, day of the decision”. Yesterday I met that friend and asked her about it, the explanation was pretty expectable: she was considering studying in Bielefeld at that time and bought the book at the day she visited Bielefeld and had to make the decision to study there or not and she choose not to.
Simple, logical, not related to me at all, pretty trivial actually and still it bothers me, “day of the decision” is still ringing in my head and messing with it… Is it time to make the decision, have I already made it, was it the right decision etc.
Do stuff like that ever happen to you, do you get the “destiny” feeling or do you drive straight on the logic line?
P.S. If you like books with history via this really awesome site you can set your books free, so that they’ll go live their own life and start changing someone else’s life !!! I will be glad if you add me as a friend of course 😉
