I don’t believe in karma, fate, luck, prayer, the universe, or really anything other than me and my fellow human beings (and even we let each other down sometimes). But I do believe that when you need to hear/see/find something, you’re more likely to be receptive to the message when you stumble across it, than if you were just stumbling around with no purpose.
That being said, I just happened to stumble across an article on Chris Guillebeau’s blog this evening. Like others I’m sure, I subscribe to too many newsletters that I never read. But this time I actually did and I like what I found. Not because it’s insightful and full of good advice, but because I can relate. Sometimes I just need to take a step back and relate, and not have to do anything about it. It feels nice to not have to do anything.
It’s short. Go ahead and read it for yourself. Maybe you’ll relate too
