The Universe Has Your Back

You have heard it before:

Everything happens for a reason

You have heard it and you probably believe it on some level but is it:
~ I couldn’t agree more and I live my whole life that way
~ That’s BS, shit happens and there’s no rhyme or reason for it
~ I mostly agree with it, but sometimes the Universe has some seriously flawed logic!

Granted it’s mostly in hindsight that the logic makes sense, but just go with it.  Case in point.  I just booked some airline tickets for me, Gary and the boys to go on vacation this summer.  I tried to do it yesterday, but after 2 hours on the phone and the tickets still were not booked and I ran out of time before heading out to pick up the boys.  I know, in today’s Internet age you are thinking, ‘hello, that is a 15 minute task, what the heck took 2+ hours!’   I was trying to track down a companion fare and figure out some other things and every person I talked to passed me on to another person to get the answer and each time I got passed on to someone else it involved 10+ minutes of hold time.  So this morning I started my quest for tickets again and you would not believe what happened ~

15 minutes start to finish on the phone and what I thought was going to cost $1500 cost $680!  Thank you Universe for having my back!!!!!  How did I pull that one off?  With the extra time to think about it last night I was able to figure out a way to use some air miles and then the tickets went on sale over night which brought the price WAY down.

Now, did the Universe magically create infinite hold times for me yesterday so that I would run out of time and they could save me a bunch of money today?  Who knows.  All I know is that it worked out and if it worked on airline tickets, chances are they can pull a few strings for me on other things too.  So the next time you find yourself wondering WHY, just relax and know that the Universe has your back.

    You are so right Nicole! I listed a house for some stupid clients that three weeks later decided to rent instead of sell. That was irritating, but not life altering. They were still going to buy something with me. Three offers later, they decided they wanted to go with a RedFin agent to save some money. I was so angry at the time. However, as soon as I got these monkeys off my back, I had three new buyers at higher price points and six new listings coming on. Yay! Universe 8 points Stupid clients -2
