You should read the post before this to fully grasp what I’m saying.
OK, so I was talking about all those weird little “coincidences,” for lack of a better word, right? I just wrote my Tiny Little Nudges post this morning.
At my school, teachers will often bring in snacks to share with each other when we’re planning in the staff room. I usually have a variety of things in my desk — for example, small packages of crackers or cookies from other teachers, leftover treats from when I’ve brought things in for my classes, etc. Lately, however, I haven’t had any snacks.
This morning, as I was on my way out the door, I thought about grabbing a pack of Pepero (it’s the Korean version of Japanese pocky — thin cookie sticks dipped in chocolate and then sometimes rolled in things like almonds). I thought I’d want something to have on hand in case we would be sharing food today. I put a package in my purse and promptly forgot about it.
But sure enough, not ten minutes ago, one of the teachers said something about being hungry, and the math teacher asked me if I had any cookies. If I had not brought the Pepero, I would have had no snacks! Please keep in mind that I haven’t been asked for snacks by anyone in about 3 weeks, so it’s not like I should have been expecting it or anything.
I know this may sound ridiculous or incredibly trivial to someone else, but it’s far too coincidental to actually be coincidental, you know what I mean? The universe/powers/etc. (“The Big Stuff”) knew they finally had my attention and just wanted to drive the point home.
From what I’ve heard/been reading, “The Big Stuff” reveals itself to us in mysterious ways. For me, they used snacks. Good one, universe.
