Seeing the best in life's challenges

Seeing the Pieces fit Together

on February 20, 2012

I firmly believe there is A Plan.  Maybe a better way to say it, is that there is purpose to the things that happen in life.  You might not understand something at the time.  It doesn’t always have to be a life-changing event.  But those moments when the pieces fit, and you see it happening, well that’s just the coolest thing ever.

Yesterday’s blog post is something I had copied into a note on Facebook on Halloween 2011.  I don’t even remember where I found it, I just liked those “Twelve Rules for Being Human.”  I had no idea who Dan Millman was, I just made sure I put his name down to credit the writer.  Ok, fine.

On December 9, 2011, a Facebook friend sent me a message, saying that, based on the types of things I was posting, I should watch the movie Peaceful Warrior with Nick Nolte.  That has been in the back of my mind since then.  I’m not really the movie person in my household.  I had asked my husband the best way to watch it, and he said Netflix.  Finally, today, which is a quiet day with not much going on, I asked my daughter how to get on Netflix and she knew our password and helped me find the movie.

So I just watched the movie on the computer.

Took me a while until it clicked, like more than halfway through the film.  The movie is about Dan Millman.

Whoa.  I would be freaked out, except that I think that’s the most fun, hilarious “coincidence” ever.

When you start paying attention and listening, after you clear out the garbage in your head, you see this stuff ALL the time.

It’s an amazing, deep movie, by the way.
