A Synchronistic Moment

February 15, 2011

I am firm believer in synchronicity, so much so that I have the word tattooed on me!  I have talked about its power in my life before, specifically in this post about India and this post about Brasil.  Normally I do not interrupt my series of posts with daily life experiences, however something happened that I just had to share.  Plus, I feel like it fits in well with the topic of my current posts, my upcoming wedding.

Three months from yesterday (which happened to be Valentine’s Day) is my wedding date and I opened my fortune cookie to discover a fortune that truly took my breath away:

News of this incredible coincidence spread around the restaurant quickly and I had strangers congratulating me.  It was the perfect way to end the most romantic day of the year, especially since I was away from my sweetheart.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the thoughtful messages so many of you sent to me on Twitter and Facebook when I posted a picture of the fortune.  What this ultimately means, who knows, but I feel like it is another reminder that I am following my bliss in life!

    That’s awesome! Especially because they don’t really do fortunes anymore. All I’ve gotten lately is funny little jokes, play on words, that are less fortunes and more just general witticisms. So, with that being the case, getting a fortune like this is even more rare!

    Wow that is amazing fortune – meant to be! Love when something like that happens 🙂 … 3months, so exciting Andi!

    Boo, your blog at my comment. Let’s see if this works:

    I still think this is so crazy! But for the people who don’t know, you should add that your wedding is 3 months from the date you got that fortune so that they can appreciate just how crazy it really is.

    I’ll say it again – THAT is the definition of fate!

    My husband and I narrowed down our wedding date to a few choices and then sent those to his mom and grandma, who consulted a fortune teller and reported back which date was the most lucky. This fortune teller must be pretty good, because my husband was playing with some Chinese lunar almanac app on a colleague’s phone today and reported that for the date of our wedding, it listed nothing but good luck for things occurring that day, and absolutely nothing under the bad luck category! Whew!!

    That’s really incredible, considering it’s just a random fortune cookie. I believe things happen for a reason. This just seems to be a sign that you’re on the right track.

    No way! That’s awesome, Andi. I wish you tons of luck and happiness leading up to the big day.

    As an aside, I just had a fortune cookie yesterday for the first time in a long time. It’s fortune was nothing like yours, though 🙂

    That’s awesome! Congrats. I’m also a firm believer in luck, and just seeing signs from the outside world (which includes those fortune cookies too).
